I don't have rhgb added anywhere, as I showed in my previous post:

# cat /proc/cmdline
ro root=/dev/md1 nofb

plymouth is configured to give text output:

# plymouth-set-default-plugin
text

This server doesn't have X Window System installed. I want to have
classic 80x24 text console after my Fedora 10 boot up multiuser.

How I can check which module is responsible for changing the video
resolution? I the past in Linux you could append ``nofb'' to disable
framebuffer and keep the glass console in plain text mode. I don't know
how to do that today.
