Description

<jkimball4> can the number of lines and columns of the console be increased?
<alanc> sure, run X and open an xterm with as many lines as you want
<alanc> the non-X text console is however, fixed size
<jkimball4> heh okay
<Triskelios> you can get more rows with a smaller font, though. but only one font is supported by default
<Triskelios> merging http://www.bolthole.com/solaris/drivers/vgatext.html could be a fun weekend project for someone
<Triskelios> someone who isn't me, since I spend 99% of my time in X
<alanc> sounds like an RFE to add to the illumos tracker
<Triskelios> it does, doesn't it?
