I am running Kali linux on my 13" notebook.
During the initial boot the font is blocky and large - which is what I want.
However as we progress through the boot stage, at some point the screen resolution becomes very high - I am guessing perhaps the GFX card drivers have been loaded)
When fully booted I navigate to
Applications > System Tools > Preferences > System Settings > Displays
I can see that I only have one Resolution to choose form in the list - 2560 x 1600
returns the same info that
screen 0: minimum 2560 x 1600, current 2560 x 1600, maximum 2560 x 1600 ...
It seems to me the only way I could get a low resolution like I want would be to tell Linux somewhere in the boot stage to not load the GFX drivers...
How could I go about doing this? OR what other options do I have?
What I have tried.
- Adding boot paramters nomodeset i915.modeset=0 nouveau.modeset=0 - All of boot appears with large font, but once kali desktop loads up everything goes back to resolution 2560 x 1600
