I just installed Fedora 16 on my desktop, after some years away from Linux (my last distro would've been Mandrake back in 2004 or so). While the graphical stuff is nice, a lot of the time I find myself in the virtual console (to play nethack, etc). When trying a virtual console, I noticed that the text was very small. I'm used to seeing a standard 80x25 display, and the text was ridiculously tiny. I had just installed NetBSD a few days before this, and got a standard console.
So I've tried a number of things. /etc/inittab helpfully informed me that I needed to re-link to multi-user, and reboot. Tried that, and I did get the console on reboot, but it was still in ridiculously-tiny-text mode. What do I need to do to get a sane 80x25 console so I can play nethack again?
