Debian console resolution

Well, it took me some time to change, so I just noted it here for my own reference or anyone who have the same trouble like mine 🙂

I appended “vga=791” to the kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst and voila .. it worked as expected: my 1024×768 resolution 🙂

Here is the list for you to refer:

Colors             | 800×600   1024×768   1280×1024

256     (8bit)    |   771        773        775
32K    (15bit)   |   787        790        793
65K    (16bit)   |   788        791        794
16.7 M (24bit) |   789        792        795
