Default Re: working or not working?

Do you use an LCD (or a laptop)? If so, it might be that your non-X consoles aren't running at the native resolution, which can introduce "fuzziness".

(It depends on the LCD's interpolation algorithms too -- or at least, it's much worse on some LCDs than it is on others. I don't think I've ever seen an LCD where non-native resolutions are as crisp as native resolutions, but some look better than others.)

If that's it, and if vesafb works for you, you can change the resolution that your console runs at. (Apparently vesafb doesn't work for everyone, but I don't know why not.) You'll have to edit your bootloader's configuration, so (if this is applicable to you) do you use grub or lilo?
