On Mageia, where attempting Plymouth uninstallation wants to uninstall nearly

it that doesn't work for 13.1.

Well I tied that and it seems no different from when I remove the
"splash=silent quiet " from the command line.
Go figure.

However when i log in I still have the unaccountable

LINES=64

setting in vt1 (and vt2 etc)

I also have

TERM=linux

I've previously posted about not being able to account for that with the
infocmp view of the terminfo database entry.

Iv just run
clear ; for (( i=1 ; i <= 48 ; i++ )
do
echo $i
done

Syntax errors trying that here.

and established that indeed, there are ONLY 48 lines of display on vt1.
So why do I have LINES=64
Where is this being set?

Kernel maybe?

Does it behave differently if you boot a 13.1-specific kernel?

What's your complete kernel cmdline?

Is your video driver proprietary?

Is your /etc/sysconfig/console file original/unmodified from that in the rpm it
belongs to?

I tried to replicate your dilemma without success:
