Console font is huge. I see the font variable in rc.conf, but not sure what to do to make it smaller. All the font names look like gibberish, and I don't want a new font. I just want this font smaller, so that the screen can show more than 25 lines at a time.
Add vga=*** to your grub menu.lst. It should look like this:
kernel /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda3 ro vga=789
You can change the vga number to whatever you want.
There must be something, since other distros have smaller font on my computer (Gentoo and ubuntu)
