Console does not use full screen

This is a fresh Leap42.1 install on a optiplex 745, with Radeon a 66xx card.

The console is using a frame buffer driver/device, its resolution is 1600x1200 (the max that my monitor can handle), but somehow it is not using the full screen.
I try to link a photo that I’ve made.

I would appreciate some directions in where to go to fix this. I want to console to be full screen…

Thanks in advance.

Frame buffer device drivers do not have that res. Can you give all the numbers for the card?

Yes, sure. How? :smiley:

Something I remember. Like vga=ask?
This used to be in lilo.conf…
Not sure how to do it nowdays…

Is this the list?

That only applies to the vesa framerbuffer driver (vesafb). Given the info from your other thread (in relation to setting the proper resolution in an X environment), you’re system should be using the radeondrmfb driver (its embedded within the radeon kms/drm kernel driver).
A very quick way of determining that is with:

cat /proc/fb

And a very quick way of determining what mode it (the framebuffer driver) is utilising is by running:

cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes

hwinfo --framebuffer

That will only show the vesa modes that your video adapter’s bios supports (for the initial video access … like by GRUB or legacy framebuffer drivers (like vesafb)).

On the other hand,

# hwinfo --vbe | grep Mode

will also show what vesa mode the framebuffer is currently being driven at … as well as the same info about what modes the adapter’s bios supports.

Just a random thought (which I don’t think will impact, but its worth investigating), turn off the splash=verbose you set and put it back to silent.
