When booting my kernel it would change the font to make it look smaller and cleaner, and it would show colored text and look very nice but after i recompiled it doesnt do it anymore? Its just the big grey text and it doesnt look nearly as good. How do you change that?

Code:
Device Drivers ->
 Graphics support ->
  [*]   Support for frame buffer devices
  [*]   Enable firmware EDID
  ---   Frame buffer hardware drivers
  ...
        Console display driver support ->
  [*]    Video mode selection support
  <*>    Framebuffer Console support

I enabled everything except video mode selection support because i couldnt find it, and it still doesnt work. Any ideas? Or maybe the name of that option is changed in 3.11.6?

You might need to use an initial RAM Disk
