I have Ubuntu 7.10 running VMWare, in which I have Ubuntu 7.10 Server edition running in a virtual machine. Everything works ok. However, I'm having trouble understanding how to change terminal "resolution". Please note, no X-windows here!
I'm currently stuck with 80x25. If I enable vga=ask in GRUB, I get to select from couple of really bad choices i.e. 80x50 is the "best" I get. I'd really like to have wide terminal, more than 25 rows would be fine, too. And with 'vga=ask', font will change depending on selection - I'd rather just have VMWare window resize depending on terminal configuration, i.e. grow/shrink the resolution used, not fonts.
I don't know if my question even makes sense but..in a setup mentioned above, how do I enable for instance 132 columns by 25 rows "terminal"? I guess this needs some framebuffer trickery, but I'm totally lost where to start looking :/
Any help/pointers appreciated!
