Thread: Slack + new kernel = huge font

  1. #1

    Slack + new kernel = huge font

    I just compiled a new kernel(2.6.0-test11) in Slack 9.1 and when I rebooted the font during boot up(text based) was huge. How do I correct this?
    I have an nvidia geforce II ti200 card with the newest drivers and screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

    Did you compiled vesa framebuffer support when you compiled the kernel?

    Re:Slack + new kernel = huge font

    Are you using lilo or grub as a boot loader?

    Can you post the contents of grub.conf or of lilo.conf?
