           Summary: setting graphics mode for text console with video=
                    instead of vga= does not work
           Product: Drivers
           Version: 2.5
    Kernel Version: 2.6.38-0.0.7
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Video(DRI - non Intel)
        AssignedTo: drivers_video-dri at kernel-bugs.osdl.org
        ReportedBy: estellnb at gmail.com
        Regression: No

I have stated "video=1920x1200-24 at 60" on my kernel command line. Instead it
initializes a 80x25 text console with a low resolution of sth. like 640x480 or

  The video kernel command line is said to be the future replacement of vga=
modes by the Xorg development team (vga= is said to be no more compatible with
Xorg`s video mode initialization). 

Is it already implemented?
If yes a fallback to a similar Vesa graphics mode with Vesa safe/restore mode
on vt-switch may be an additional opportunity.

occurs with and without kernel modesetting.
