First install, console size
I have just installed mu first gentoo using genkernel.
My console characters are larger than when I boot from the minimal live cd I downloaded. I thought using genkernel it would be the same in terms of detecting my system?
Browsing for a solution I hear about framebuffer, but I don''t know how to identify if that is loaded in the kernel or not - and if so how I go about getting 100+ columns and 40+ rows in my console window - which is what happens when I bit from the live CD. In fact on the live cd it drops into this mode as soon as it carries out an initrd command (I think that is what it is - disappears quickly.
Any suggestions for a new guy to gentoo?
