When booting up with LILO, put 'vga=ask' then it will ask you which mode
you want to use. (Same thing apply to LOADLIN)

Linux console mode - more than 25 lines?

Hi all,

I'm using Linux under console mode only (not enough ram for X), and
I'm trying to set the screen mode to use more lines (43+ would be
nice...).

I've tried messing around with termcap and various console settings,
but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

1. 25/50 Line Console Mode

Are there any doc's for making Linux VC's 50 lines?
I have found restoretextmode doesnt work properly.
It will give a screen with a font that is 50 rows,
but it skips 1 line so as to have 25 lines off the screen.
Any suggestions appreciated.
