 on kind suggestion of Greg , have been using
iso01-12×22.psfu.gz
 - any ideas please : where to download a Larger Font ?
Is this question being asked because you are using a 4K or other HiDPI screen?
Lowering the screen resolution on the vttys (only) is a convenient way to
enlarge the fonts, what I've been doing for two decades. Standard font on a 4K
screen is 1/4 the size of the same font on a 1920x1080 screen. video=1440x900 on
the kernel cmdline is my typical choice to get nice size vtty fonts. You can use
the e key at the Grub menu to test different resolutions before configuring
permanently via YaST or /etc/default/grub.

 - thank you Felix


 Your above is too 'advanced' for me to understand :

 i think my screen is in VGA mode , as that is all my video-card will do.

 root command #hwinfo --monitor outputs :
