No manual entry for linuxrc. Where is the documentation for linuxrc to be

I don't see anything on https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Linuxrc about this, or
digging into the files in .../loader/. When using installation media, NET
or
DVD, F3 allows to choose a mode, but how can one choose a lower than
EDID-preferred mode when starting installation using Grub to load linux and
initrd on machines with no boot from removable media option, or just avoid
unnecessary downloading of files to be obsoleted within hours or days?

Video= works only for the ttys, not the GUI. Including sax2=1 (and sax3=1)
on

In fact, you currently can't influence the video mode (without a-priory
knowledge of the driver that's going to be used).


I think this statement need some qualification

a) without KMS it is possible - just select video mode during boot (or
explicitly pass vga=...) and X server will respect this setting

b) with KMS it is possible to set Linux console frame buffer video mode
using video=NxM option. But the problem here is, X server ignores it and
always selects some "best fit" resolution.

So the real question probably is - is it possible to make X server
respect currently chosen console resolution? If it is not possible - is
it possible to force fbdev X driver during installation?
