When using a virtual terminal with an external monitor, I would like to set the resolution to the monitors optimal resolution, but I'm not sure how. Does anyone know how I would go about doing this?
and you will get a short or long list depending on what video card you have. The list will look something like this:
Then you take the Hex value to the right, for example 0x0346 and you write it down.
the line that has ="quiet", make it "quiet vga=0x0346"
then you have to run>
reboot the machine
After you set up your virtual environment, you will need to install some specific hardware. If you are virtualizing a windows environment there should be an icon in the system tray on, bottom right.
Under linux, I'm not sure where it would show up but you should see those as well.
Without the extra install, you won't be able to get the full screen.
