hi all.
I tried to adjust the resolution of grub2 according to gentoo wiki
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GRUB2

Basically I have emerged grub2 with the truetype use flag, and I edited the /etc/default/grub configuration file like:
# Set resolution and color depth
GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768x32

(I have confirmed that 1366x768 is available by typing "vbeinfo" in grub command line)

(I have also done the grub2-mkconfig -o step)

However, after a reboot, resolution still remain unchanged which is 1920x1080 in my case and the font is so tiny that hard to read.

Hello houkensjtu,

maybe try another size?

GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768
