Bring TTYs back and Plymouth resolution on Sony Vaio VPCS11E7E with Ubuntu 10.04

Italiano | English

My bad, I’m in the habit not to read articles to the end.

In a terminal

sudo apt-get install v86d

then open /etc/default/grub and edit GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and GRUB_GFXMODE as follows

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1360x768-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"
...
GRUB_GFXMODE=1360x768

then

echo uvesafb mode_option=1360x768-24 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap | sudo tee -a /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
echo FRAMEBUFFER=y | sudo tee /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
sudo update-grub
sudo update-initramfs -u

Thus the Ubuntu logo at boot will be at the correct resolution and you will have your TTYs back.

This guide is almost a copy and paste of the link you find in source at the bottom. If you don’t have a VPCS11E7E use that link instead of this guide.
