I'm trying to set the screen resolution in
vga= on the kernel line:
I'm using CentOS 6.4.
That command should set the screen resolution to 16bit 800x600 according to antlinux's wiki.
rhgb from the
grub.conf file so I can see the details of the boot instead of the progress bar. The problem is that the details on the screen are very small, using and old monitor like most of our customers and changing the VGA setting in
grub.conf doesn't seem to change anything for these details being displayed on the screen or the login prompt at the console.
Any ideas on what to change to modify the screen resolution for the details show on the console during boot and login prompt? Setting VGA in
grub.conf just doesn't seem to do anything.

I'm seeing this in

I think this has something to do with my problem with the resolution changing on me..Still looking into it. Fixed it!! See fix it post below.
