I'm new to Linux. I've tried a lot of different ways, but all effort failed - usually because they pertain to Ubuntu desktop, rather than server, and because they rely on packages being present which aren't, or a graphical interface.
I'm running 12.04 - 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 people have said about "grub menu"... what is it? 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?
