View Full Version : Console mode resolution

7th February 2007, 03:45 AM

I'm trying to make my console mode resolution 1280x1024 with 17'' LCD, followed the instructions online, passed an argument vga=794 to the kernel, but at boot time, it complained that the mode is supported! Also tried vga=ask, and select each of the possible options, sill not working. But on a HP FC6 box, everything is working properly, how is it possible?

I also tried to use the fbset command, it says my fb device does not exist.

I'm having a Dell PC running FC6, kernel version: 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6.

Any ideas? :)
