I successfully installed gentoo 2004.3 for amd64 and got it running/booting, however I seem to be stuck at a 40 column display. I have used Mandrake for many years inlcluding GRUB.

framebuffer is turned on in a sucessful kernel compile. I've also tried the following grub lines

kernel=kernel-2.6.5 root=/dev/hdb3 vga=10 vesafb:ywrap,mttr
kernel=kernel-2.6.5 root=/dev/hdb3 vesafb:ywrap,mttr,1280x1024-65@75

Any ideas?

"mttr" should be mtrr .

Looks like there are lots of typos in here.

Thanks for the advice, however I made typos in the post that were not in my grub.conf. I have an nForce4 w/ 6600GT PCIe.

kernel=kernel-gentoo root=/dev/hdb3 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768@32@85

doesn't work, still at 40 columns. I've also tried variations.

Would moving to 2005.0 be an idea?

Have you tried the rather simple
Code:
kernel=kernel-2.6.5 root=/dev/hdb3 vga=normal

This gives me a 80 character terminal

OK, better try this line as is:

Code:
kernel=kernel-gentoo root=/dev/hdb3 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768
