I wanted to improve the resolution of the console on a linux server. After reading some forums and HOWTO’s I found
out that it’s very easy, you just have to add
vga=MODE to your kernel parameters - where MODE stands for the
desired screen resolution.The possible screen resolultions are listet here.
These values are hexadecimal so
vga=791 stands for 1024×768 and 16 Bit Colors (0×317).
