My monitor died and had to buy a new one. In between I had to temporarily plug in an older monitor with a lower resolution. I now have a new monitor, full HD like the old one. I didn't change any settings but now when I boot, the fonts on the console are huge, instead of being adapted to the screen resolution.

In grub.cfg, I have:
Code:

if loadfont $font ; then
  set gfxmode=1920x1080x24
...
endif


each menuentry has:
Code:

set gfxpayload=keep


I use the nvidia drivers. Running nvidia-settings didn't change anything. Everything is actually ok in X sessions. The problem is with the tty1 console during and after boot.


I'm currently investigating...

nvidia-drivers, bundled nvidia-settings, is for opengl and such. And only for the X-server itself

I usually used the vga statement when it is cli / tty related.

e.g

vga=0x31B


Just a starting point for you.

Also check every config file in /etc please. Alternatively kernel section regarding
