[Bug 184822] Re: kernel vga mode setting not working with 2.6.22

I have the same problem and I have seen it on two 7.10 systems. One with
a standard 7.10 install the other is a 7.10 server. I have tried a
number of different vga modes (771, 791, 792, 793) and I get no visible
output during bootup (just a blank screen) but on the standard system X
works fine but CTRL+ALT+F[1-5] gives me a blank screen.

Here is what my grub/menu.list contains.

# defoptions=vga=791

I expect you will see this on any 2.6.22 system but I've only tested it
with the following kernels.


If I add 'splash' to the defoptions I get output. On my server system I
don't want the splash screen but I would like a higher video resolution
like 1024x768.
