I'm a linux newbie and I've now tried lots of different ways of doing this, but every single one fails somewhere - usually because they pertain to Ubuntu desktop rather than server and rely on packages being present which aren't, or a graphical interface.
I'm running 12.04 server - fresh install in a VM
I've tried editing
/etc/default/grub followed by
reboot - this either achieves nothing, or results in a failure to reboot.
I try to run
vbeinfo and it says unknown command.
How can I increase the size of the console window?
I've tried using
xrandr which required a package install of
x11-server-utils, but after installation all I got when I typed
xrandr was Can't open display
Some comments have talked about "grub menu"... what is this - if I type grub it tells me to install a package - I do so, and type grub and I get the grub console... is this helpful?
