Lilo and vga=mode Question
I placed a "vga=ask" line in my Debian 2.2 lilo.conf
file and re-ran lilo. When I re-boot, lilo askes me
for video mode. I press "enter" and the following
seven modes are listed:
0 0F00 80x25
1 0F01 80x50
2 0F02 80x43
3 0F03 80x28
4 0F05 80x30
5 0F06 80x34
6 0F07 80x69
Then a question asks to "enter mode or scan".
I enter "scan" and after a few seconds, these additional
modes are listed:
7 0100 40x25
8 0121 100x25
9 0122 100x30
a 0123 132x25
b 0133 132x44
I would like "mode 9". I tried to put "vga=9" and "vga=0122"
into my lilo file but when I re-boot, I'm told I chose an
invalid mode. How can I get the mode that I want w/o using
"vga=ask" and then using the "scan" command? If this can't be
done through lilo, is there some sort of command that could
change the video modes after boot up? Something I can put
into a "rc.local" type of file?
BTW... I have tried all the modes and they all work for me.
I just want to automatically start in "mode=9".
