"How do you boot in text mode?" expansion
on my system, the kernel parameters "
vga=0 nomodeset" boots arch and the few other distros i tried it with into 80x25 vga text mode properly.
- I have no idea what you mean and how is it relevant to the text on the Linux console page. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 18:57, 24 August 2020 (UTC)
Add section on cursor appearance in Linux console
Looking through all Linux console related articles on wiki I didn't notice a mention of managing the cursor appearance (talking about "real"
/dev/ttyX console here, not terminal emulators under X or Wayland where cursor appearance can be adjusted in settings). There are a couple of good articles on the web about this:
- Cursor Appearance in the Linux Console LG #137
- How to change cursor shape, color, and blinkrate of Linux Console
I think adding summary and a couple of examples will go a long way towards saving user's time. Is this topic covered somewhere else in the wiki? Is this the right section to add this information? Romstor (talk) 03:07, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
