I have a problem that is not of easy resolution, happen to tell...
I have Installed Ubuntu 10.10 Server.
I want to join to the system way vga=788, into the grub it changes without any problem editing the file grub.cfg, the problem is that editing the above mentioned file I join to the system way vga=788 (800x600) and then command line puts itself in way vga=792 (1280x1024). Is there any way of changing this configuration so that it is always vga=788? tanks. sorry for my english :D

grub.cfg is an auto generated file, hence the big warning at the top that says not to edit it. Instead you need to edit /etc/default/grub.

Good I was editing the file /etc/default/grub and changed quiet for vga=788 then sudo update-grub sudo reboot and the system continues of the same form. Anyway I think that the problem is in Framebuffer. tanks for answering so soon. – user10120 Feb 2 '11 at 22:15
