On most machines, this gives a pair of pretty big numbers - e.g., 61 228
This means that tty1 (and each of the other virtual consoles) is 61 rows and 228 columns in size.
However, on one of my RPis, it returns 27 and 62. I need it to be bigger (say, as above, something like 61 and 228).
In config.txt, I find:
Code: Select all
# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus # overscan. #framebuffer_width=1280 #framebuffer_height=720
There are no other lines containing the word "frame".
So, two questions:
1) How can I find out what those values are set to now? (since the above lines are commented out; it must be getting and setting these values somewhere else)
2) Will changing them increase the size of the virtual consoles? If so, what should I set them to?
P.S. This is a Pi Zero running Raspbian, connected to a small HDMI screen. I'm guessing that the small size of the HDMI screen is what is causing it to default to a small screen size for the VCs.
