Default Textmode Resolution of 1920x1200 possible?


got my new 24" DELL TFT, with a nice 1920x1200 resolution.

My Question is now, how can i get the Textmode (without X running) to this resolution ?

I now have a line:
in lilo.conf.

But i can not find any modes for higher resolutions.
1600x1200 is not working @ Textmode...

What can i do ?

"hwinfo --framebuffer" (must be run with root privileges; in ubuntu it's "sudo hwinfo --framebuffer" + also where is a chance that hwinfo is not installed yet on your distro) will list all available tty modes for you
