Sorry, I should have been more clear, or possibly I'm just not getting it.
DSL is on the harddrive. The boot options are passed by grub afaik.
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda2 quiet vga=785 noacpi noapm nodma noscsi frugal
If this item is chosen at boot all goes well at 640x480. Editing vga= to 771 results in 800x600 but looks horrible.
title DSL fb800x600
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda2 quiet vga=788 noacpi noapm nodma noscsi frugal
Choosing this item causes the problems mentioned in the previous
post. Tried replacing vga=788 with fb800x600 but the result was the same.
No big deal. 640x480 suits my limited vision with some apps.
Edit/ The ps command shows /usr/bin/X11/Xfbd running. Suppose this means framebuffer is being used? Not a complete newb, just out of my comfort zone. ;)
