[SOLVED]How to keep the orginal font in virtual consoles

Postby pythagorasmk » 2019-11-17 16:19

When the system is booting there are messages from the booting process. In the beginning messages are printed using one font, but when the kernel is setting up the console the font is changed. I want a method to keep the first font, because in my opinion it is better. But I don't know which font is that, and I don't know where I can setup the font for virtual consoles.
I am using Nouveau driver with old nvidia graphics card, but I think that that have no influence on the problem.

It's called the "VGA" font and is the native font supplied by your video card.
