Gentoo has been great so far. I am just having trouble getting grub to load in 80 x 50 video mode. I know with lilo all I had to do was put vga=ask in the config file. Is this possible with GRUB? If so, what are the setting to enter into menu.lst?

Thanks,

Mike Rizzo

Works the same way. After your root delcaration in your menu.lst file add vga=ask

Example:
Code:

title=My example Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3 vga=ask

i think you can also change resolutions when running x by pressing ctrl-alt and then the + and - keys...it should cycle throught he resolutions you have in your xf86config file for that depth
