I've been trying to adjust the textmode resolution (everything after
bios) to a resoltuion my monitor can handle. The monitor doesn't
support the native textmode resolution.
Is there a way to force the textmode resolution to 640x480 or is this
done with the rows/columns settings.
I've tried setting the output-device under eeprom (and device config
assistant) to "screen:r640x480" but this has no effect. I've also tried
setting the rows/columns under stty.
I have done this before on my Gentoo box, by editing the grub boot cmd
to specify the Kernel boot with the vga=791 option.
Any help would be great.
