Edit /etc/default/grub as :~$ sudo nano /etc/default/grub add vga=795 to the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, it might look like this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash vga=792" then update grub :~$ sudo update-grub now reboot :~$ sudo reboot -r now This method worked for Fedora 21 and Debian 8 in Oracle virtualbox 5

You have to install guest additions... https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/44503/fedora-20-virtualbox-guest-additions-install/

netstat as shipped with modern OSes (including Ubuntu) has a -W (--wide) switch that disables column width restrictions. This is definitely present since net-tools 1.60-23, documented in netstat(8), and listed in Changelog as an addition to 1.60-22. Old releases of net-tools, such as net-tools 1.60-10 (about 2005), don’t have this feature. For those who are ...

You're probably using something which uses the framebuffer directly, without using X. It is not possible to display such things remotely. I don't know this emulationstation thing, but I can say that kodi works just fine with an X server. Also, it has its own android remote app which is a more useful way of controlling it from android; you might want to look ...

If you're not using X, what are you using? For text-only/shell display, ssh is the way to go. For X, you have two options: remote display by changing your display to a network location with an X server, or VNC. You can also try proprietary solutions, for example TeamViewer, which supports android clients: https://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx EDIT: ...

Unchecking "Scroll alternate screen" in Terminal->Preferences->Profiles->Keyboard fixed it for me.

Linux VT console devices are dynamically allocated. They appear when they are opened by any process, just echo >/dev/tty63 will do that. You might be interested in utilities like openvt / deallocvt / chvt. Missing /dev/vcs7 is probably because Xorg session is using /dev/tty7 in graphics mode. Xorg uses the first unused console device found beginning ...

I suppose TERM is set to linux for the init process (pid 1) by Linux kernel here and there. You can see it in /proc/1/environ (sorry the following output is from Ubuntu 15.04): $ sudo strings /proc/1/environ HOME=/ init=/sbin/init recovery= TERM=linux BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-25-generic.efi.signed PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin PWD=/ ...

The $TERM variable is normally set in /etc/profile or .bashrc depends on the distro ur using. Read http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Keyboard-and-Console-HOWTO-11.html

In bash I find CTRL+l moves the cursor to the top of the screen, but CTRL+L (i.e. CTRL+SHIFT+l) moves the cursor to the top of the screen, and inserts around a screen of space beforehand. Ideal! Thanks @Anthon.

One can also try to disable fbdev and run SVGATextMode (that works well on nVidia hardware) from init instead. It will give a native VGA-like text mode that is very fast, but modes are tedious to setup for good text quality with modern monitors and they have some limitations (font no more than 9 dots wide and 512 characters in it maximum).

The standard spelling is “framebuffer”, without space. In Linux kernel, fbdev is an (optional) graphic abstraction layer for video hardware (a.k.a. video card). Different video hardware needs different drivers (that may be loaded as kernel modules), but user-space software, such as mplayer, uses unified API writing to it. The word framebuffer itself means a ...

On Debian-based systems, there is a file that causes 5 extra getty's to be launched on startup if you've just built a server (without dbus service): /lib/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty-static.service In it, it says: [Service] Type=oneshot ExecStart=/bin/systemctl --no-block start getty@tty2.service getty@tty3.service getty@tty4.service ...

This is what worked for me. Please change the values as per your environment. This is my PXE file /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default parameters :- KERNEL distros/CentOS_7.1_64/images/pxeboot/vmlinuz INITRD distros/CentOS_7.1_64/images/pxeboot/initrd.img APPEND ks=http://192.168.1.100/kscfg/ks_CentOS_7.1_64.cfg ksdevice=link Additionally, I have ...

Just write a bitmap file and display it using fbi?

Oh. Turns out I had the following code in my .profile... while true; do echo -ne "\e[s\e[0;$((COLUMNS-37))H$(date)\e[u"; sleep 1; done &
