16:9 display in textmode

My next notebook will probably have one of these ugly widescreens, as there are hardly any cheap ones with 3:4 displays. What will I have to do on the kernal command line to tell framebuffer what to do?

The framebuffer settings have this strange code, like 1024x768 and 16M colors is "0x318". How can I set widescreen resolutions there?

They say if you reverse play a Windows CD you can hear satanic verses... But wanna know what's even worse? If you forward play it, it's gonna install Windows on your system!

Re: 16:9 display in textmode

you would probably need to use vesafb-tng instead of just vesa. arch's default kernel currently uses vesa iirc.
