I run centos linux 7
Graphics are nvidia, resolution 2560,1440
echo $TERM returns linux
In all of my ctrl+alt+f# virtual consoles, the text scrolls past the bottom of the display. This is difficult to describe, but it seems as if the monitor is showing only the top part of the display.
My prompt starts at the top of my monitor. Then I hit enter and get a new prompt right below that one (no surprises so far!). However, if I keep doing this, when the prompt reaches the bottom of the display, it does not scroll. Similar behavior if I cat some long file ... the prompt disappears below the display. I recover my prompt by typing 'clear' or 'reset'.
Note that vim works properly ... its : prompt appears at the bottom of the display as it should.
I have followed some tutorials on setting GRUB_GFXMODE to adjust the console resolution, but this had no effect.
Please help me correct this problem with my virtual consoles.
