Proposal for /proc/vidinfo

Post by Bauke Jan Dou » Fri, 21 Apr 1995 04:00:00



Hi,

Is there any elegant way I can retrieve the video mode the system is
booted in right after bootup, other than grepping kmsg?

I propose /proc/vidinfo, containing for example "color\nEGA+\n132x44"
if that's what I boot up in (as a minimum), and that it be updated
upon each change of video mode.

Hi,
what do you think about "dmesg |grep Console". If you parse this line
you may get every Information you want.
