console screen size

Hello.  I recenlty install .8 on my Dell Inspiron 5100 with ATI Radeon 7500 HS: 31.5-48.5 VR: 59-75
I got X configured correctly for it, though the console without x running is still cut off
around the edges...im not quite sure how to do the configurations...hopefully
someone can help?
Thanks

Re: console screen size

Which kernel are you using? The arch default one with plain vesafb? Beyond with vesafb-tng? A self compiled kernel wit radeonfb? Configuration is a bit different in these scenarios (radeonfb actually autodetects stuff). The relevant aspect is the resolution anyway.

Re: console screen size

Then use the vga=<foo> parameter in the kernel line in the grub configuration. Look in the default /boot/grub/menu.lst, it includes a tab to determine the right parameter.
