I just installed Archlinux on VMware Workstation 9. I use it mostly for coding yet I encountered a problem that bugs meto hell.
I just plan to work in a console environment. However I have this problem.
In VMware I go to fullscreen and use View->Autostrech Guest.
After the bootup I get this screen. It looks good and I want to continue to code in it.
However after several seconds on the bootup the image gets distorted. I can still work on it, but I really hate it. It looks like this:
It does not look broken like that, it's just that I captured the moment when the resolution changed. However I want to use still the first resolution which the characters were bigger. My eyes hurt from the second one.
Any ideeas on what to do?
Can anyone help?
It is not any resolution problem . The system just loads the proper graphics driver for that resolution. If the font is too small for your eyes you can adjust the font via "vconsole.conf" . See the wiki .

Where is the vconsole.conf? It is not in /etc.
Can I just disable the driver from loading at all? I don't like it at all.
If vconsole.conf is not there, then just create it. Also if you want some info on setting the font:

I would assume you want to do it the wrong way, you could just disable kms.
Ok, I disabled KMS by editing the syslinux.conf using the nomodeset.
However, it is still doing the same thing. Switches the font/resolution. It does appear to switch the resolution though.
Ok, so what is the default console font of Archlinux? Before the video drivers kick in.
