Default Re: Force scaling on terminal/framebuffer

see if there's a bios setting for that.

I think there's no chance the X driver supports that, because it's indeed an X driver, and making it influence VESA modes would be a 'side-effect' (in the programmation meaning), and that is HIGHLY undesireable, as it can/will lead to various inconsistencies and unexpected results, thus an open door to bugs.

In fact, some time ago, the X driver was just doing that, which led to totally unpredictable VT display. hopefully now it is always 100% consistent with the BIOS setting.
