I've just a installed a Debian Wheezy box (Debian 7.0rc1). By default, the console is displayed using the frame buffer, and due to a certain hardware setup I won't go into, this comes out too wide on my display, e.g. the leftmost column of the console doesn't show.
Is there a way I can make the console one or two columns narrower? I mean, I don't want to make the font narrower or wider, I want there to be less columns at the same width, and for the whole rendered console screen to take less width but be centered the same way.
Update: Based on @mr.spuratic's answer I installed and tried to use
fbset; which doesn't do exactly what I asked for but might theoretically help me overcome the problem. Anyway, when I try to set the mode with it I get:
fbset FBIOPUT_VSCREENINFO: invalid argument
- I would like a solution both through manipulation grub's configuration and on-the-fly from the console after I've booted.
- If there's additional information you require to provide a solution, comment and ask.
