:I propose we put:
:into GENERIC so that people with laptops & flatscreens can change
:console resolution to their screen's physical resolution directly from
:the DragonFly CD. We could also add:
:to enable 90 column console modes.
:Except for some additional kernel size (~21K) I see no problem with that
:since the CD starts with a text console anyway and syscons returns
:ENODEV if the mode the user wants to set is not available with current
I think this is doable as long as the default mode is left as it is.
I don't think the vesa module makes any video bios calls on startup,
which would be my only worry.
