In Fedora 15 (x86_64) is it possible to get a real VGA text mode (not a VESA picture of what VESA thinks text mode might look like) like 80(columns)x25(lines)x16(colors) with an ISO-8859-1 font of an appropriate size. This is not a question about Xterm or any of its clones or running commands in a GUI). resizeconsole says it is missing a videomode file for 80x25, but I cannot determine where such files should be. man setfont says "the kernel" will automatically adjust if a font of an appropriate size is chosen, but I cannot tell that setfont has any effect at all.
Isn't there something that will load an appropriate font into my video card and really use VGA text mode?
