Thank you for your answer!
But I don't really get it working. If have a resolution 1024x768
althrough WXGA (1280x800) were possible.
I reached this solution on my console (bash) by adding vga=0x316 to my
grub config file menu.lst. I also tried 0x307 but it don't works:
Playing with fbset has no effect. Console-tools seem to be useless for
me because they should not influence my fb, should they?
What can I do?
