Re: resolution on console with IPX/CGsix

  I have solved a similar problem like:

  1, set up a font server with ttf fonts somewhere in your network
  2, set up X to use that fontserver
  2, run xterm with one of theese fonts

On a 21" monitor at 1600x1200 pixels this is readable from 4m and it
covers most of the screen:

xterm -fn '-ttf-courier new-medium-r-normal-*-50-*-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1' -g 50x20 &
