I can't change tty resolution/mode by running fbset. No matter what mode or geometry I use (correct syntax, I even referred to /etc/fb.modes), it simply shows no output and it doesn't change resolution. How do I change the resolution without rebooting?

Also, what generates /etc/fb.modes. I want to run again whatever that is.
