I posted before the wish of 1280x1024 resolution of my external TFT-monitor to
this list. It seems not to be possible but incidentally I found out that
1400x1050 mode is possible. It is not the native resolution of the TFT but
better than 1024x768. I can change the width to fit to the screen but I can't
change the hight, so I have a 1050-1024=26 rows of pixels I can't see. Is
there a way to change that? (How can I prevent drawing below 1024?)
It would even help, if I could make the kernel switch to a console with 175x64
and not 65 rows. Is there a way to pass the number or rows to the kernel
before booting? (arch/i386/boot/video.S seems to deal with something like
that, but I couldn't find the kernel-parameter that changes it).
Any help and hint appreciated
Thanks a lot

There's no such kernel parameter, but you can use 'stty cols <value> rows <value>'.
I played a bit with stty cols and when I reduce them to "stty cols 160" the
monitor says "Signal out of range" Why's that? Is stty not just reducing the
columns? I hoped I could just set the number of cols and rows one would have
with 1280x1024 to make the chars nice and clear by scaleing that part to the
