    shetting up console display parameters

    Ok, if I am not using X at all and simply log into the console, what do I need to edit to change the font size, number of characters per line, etc. Basically, I just got a larger monitor and want top fit more text on the screen for the obvious reasons.

    It depends on what video card you have if its a better one you could use
    the framebuffer device ( http://directfb.org - http://www.linux-fbdev.org/) - it allows you to even watch videos - at least if your video card is not too old ..

    If you just want to change the font size you can do the following :

    Code:
    setfont cybercafe
    this installs the cybercafe.fnt.tgz font from /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts
    look at the man page for more details as im not often using this and therefore cant help you much - but basically it should work like this ..

    if you are using the bash also this tool is very handy :
