    Too many rows in console


    I'm installing Gentoo (minimal 2005.1) on my laptop. There's this problem of too many rows in my console. I mean, even the physical screen ends, there's still stuff below that. Of course it doesn't prevent me from typing 'clear' whenever I no longer see what there's going on, but this'll be a problem in the future.

    How do I resize the console so that it doesn't overlap?

    I'm having the same problem. I tried installing it before, and found a response on another forum how to set the screen size at the beginning, but I can't remember what I did. (It was weeks ago.) Did you figure it out?

    You can try changing the framebuffer resolution when typing the boot options, or boot it without framebuffer.

    Another solution is to use the keys on your monitor to move & resize the image until you see it all.
