    How to console 80x25?

    I think this is a kernel issue, so i post it here.

    Let's go, i have Ubuntu 10.04 (2.6.32-34-generic) with autologin in TTY1 and Gnome with autologin too (doesn't matter...).

    In grub2 i set the kernel parameter 'nomodeset' (with this i don't have graphic issues switching from TTY1 to TTY7).

    As you can see below the console was in 80x25 and then got to 80x30.

    Jan 24 17:29:44 cashway kernel: [    9.100129] Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 80x30
    How can i can make it 80x25?

    Thanks in advance.

    It works!

    I got it working in 80x25.

    I put the parameters i915.modeset=0 vga16fb.blacklist=1 in the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX and it works!

    The i915.modeset=0 load the i915 driver only for X and the console starts at 80x30, the vga16fb get in action, then i blacklist it and the console switch back to 80x25.
