# yum install terminus-fonts-console
- permanent system wide
FONT=<Big mama font>
e.g. 'latarcyrheb-sun32' or 'ter-v32b'
- runtime local
$ setfont latarcyrheb-sun32
$ setfont ter-v32b
It seems this kernel? bug is still present.
"rd.vconsole.font=ter-v32b" also fails to subsist due to
"fb: switching to nouveaufb from VESA VGA".
- journal systemd-vconsole-setup
systemd: Starting Setup Virtual Console...
systemd-vconsole-setup: putfont: KDFONTOP: Invalid argument
systemd-vconsole-setup: /usr/bin/setfont failed with error code 71.
systemd: Started Setup Virtual Console.
I've found so far that this can only be overcome with these two almost identical
When I thought of 'actual-vconsole-setup-start' I did not know that Yegor already
# cp /usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-vconsole-setup.service /etc/systemd/system/
# diff /etc/systemd/system/systemd-vconsole-setup.service \
or even simpler - leave 'systemd-vconsole-setup.service' as is,
and make this one
# Actual Virtual Console Setup Start
Description=Actual Virtual Console Setup Start
# systemctl enable actual-vconsole-setup-start.service
and now you have appropriate font size for 1920x1080,
no need to lower resolution via "video=<xres>x<yres>".
Perhaps '32' is too large, so choose <= '28', e.g. ter-v28b or
 systemd-vconsole-setup: /usr/bin/setfont failed with error code 71
 Can not change console font via /etc/vconsole.conf
The keyboard layout for the virtual console cannot be changed using
“localectl set-keymap <map>; dracut -f; reboot;”
font settings are lost when kernel fb drivers are changed
Kernel drivers lose console font settings
