kme : hiresconsole   14

How do I increase console-mode resolution? - Ask Ubuntu
No amount of 'GRUB_GFXMODE' or 'GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD' seemd to do me any good, but this old trick worked
This helped me on Ubuntu 14.04 with ESXi 5.5
<code class="language-bash">sudo vi /etc/default/grub</code>
Change line to:
<code>GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash vga=792"</code>

arch linux - Setting console font in vconsole.conf does not work (systemd) - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
Also mentioned in that email thread: try the (boring) lat0-{08,10,12,14,16} fonts before giving up entirely. At least on CentOS (7), the Terminus console fonts don't seem to work at all.

Increasing Command Line Resolution Centos 6.4 VirtualBox - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
2.6.X kernels

You can increase the resolution at the console like so via your /etc/grub.conf file. Find the kernel ... line pertaining to your system booting up:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64 ro
root=/dev/mapper/vg_mungr-lv_root rd_LVM_LV=vg_mungr/lv_root
rd_LVM_LV=vg_mungr/lv_swap rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD
console=ttyS0,115200 crashkernel=auto vga=791

Where some of the values you can use for vga=:

791 - 1024x768, 16 bit
792 - 1024x768, 24 bit
794 - 1280x1024, 16 bit
795 - 1280x1024, 24 bit

[SOLVED] Problem with TTY Fonts - KDFONTOP: Invalid argument
No replies yet. Solved anyway.
It appears I had framebuffer disabled. Enabled it by editing the /etc/default/grub and adding vga=792 in the default command line arguments for grub.
If anyone has the same problem, this might be a solution.

On CentOS, solved this with "vga=789" (800x600x15) at the end of every kernel in /etc/grub.conf

GRUB - ArchWiki
GRUB can set the framebuffer for both GRUB itself and the kernel. The old vga= way is deprecated. The preferred method is editing /etc/default/grub as the following sample:
