So far so good, thanks. Now on boot my console briefly flips to the new
mode but then switches back to the default. This seems to be driven by
/etc/rc.sysinit which calls /sbin/setsysfont. Anyone know what the
recommended way to customise this would be? Edit rc.sysinit? Or change
$SYSFONT? (in which case, where, and to what)?
Suggestions as to what to read to find out how to make these kinds of
changes would be welcome.
