Please be specific on which post does not change anything or if you tried both, please mention it

giaur,

What if you try adding the grub option in /etc/default/grub

GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1280x800

(right after the GRUB_GFXMODE) and then save, update-grub and reboot?

I would take "splash" off from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT

If problems are still present, then I'd add GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="keep"

Ok, I mean these options (both) do nothing in my case. They does not help, still virtual terminals size are 1024x768, exactly as there is shown on picture I posted.

Also, I can confirm nvidia cards (with official nvidia drivers) are not affected, but official nvidia drivers don't touch termial size, possibly nouveau has the same issue as intel (but I didn't test this).

Ok, what do you mean by official nvidia drivers ?

How were they (nvidia drivers) installed ?

Did you use apt-get (recommended) or did you install using .run [NVIDIA-Linux-x86-313.26.run]

Not being picky, but the last method *can* cause problems (it has with me in the past)

*YMMV ("Your mileage may vary")

I am going to uninstall nv and go with nouveau on one of my boxes (GeForce 7900 GS) to test a few things, later tonight as I have dinner engagements shortly.

I mean this drivers from nvidia site: http://www.nvidia.pl/object/linux-displ ... er-pl.html - I don't preffer to use apt-get to install nvidia driver, since nvidia's installer works fine and registers kernel moudle in dkms, so all modules will be recompiled on each kernel update.

Ok, but I can confirm intel drivers only, I have no idea if nouveau has the same problem or not, but it seems nouveau uses framebuffer similar way as intel diver.
