"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.

can some others verify this on your systems and give insight so a wiki editor may add this? KScottDB (talk) 18:31, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

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)
i'm referring to the expansion notice at Linux console#Text mode. This article or section needs expansion. Reason: How do you boot in text mode? (Discuss in Talk:Linux console) KScottDB (talk) 23:17, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 07:09, 31 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:

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)

I don't think it's covered anywhere, feel free to add a section after Linux console#Fonts. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 07:05, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
