Hello to all users of openSuse!!
I am dying for an answer to my problem so please if you can help me out you’ll save me from a lot of headache.
I’ve been trying to boot the console with a high resolution rather than the 80x25 lines with no success.
I’m booting with GRUB which passes the option vga=0x377 to the kernel (I’m not sure about being 0x377 or other number, but it’s a number that should normally work). Instead of getting a high res console I’m told that this mode is unidentified and prompted to enter a correct number.
And not we the choices available are only the 80x25, 80x50 and the likes of them. I am not given the choice for any VESA type resolution!!
And now comes the weird part; once in a while the system accepts the vga=0x377 and boots normally into console with a high res without the “unidentified mode” error.
I know that it sounds that like there is a glitch in my graphics card and most likely it is one. Still, other than that problem, KDE runs smoothly and I’ve never had any problems regarding my card when I use Windows.
So, there has to be a way to boot into a high res console by doing some tweaks in my linux system. Can you help me out?
