Hello,

I have several CentOS 6 VMs, I have updated the first one successfully, but there is one thing I miss or I don’t like;

How do I get the standard console with 80×25 back?

Hello,

this is /boot/grub/grub.conf

default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz hiddenmenu title CentOS (2.6.32-642.el6.x86_64)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.32-642.el6.x86_64 ro root=UUID

  • Why? Is it just because they’re VMs and you’re running them on a GUI hosted by some other OS, and you don’t want them taking a lot of screen space?

    Personally, I’m glad Red Hat finally acknowledged that workstations and servers haven’t been using 14″ CRTs for quite a long time now.

    Try adding nomodeset instread.
