The bug that prevents grub2 from allowing you to specify console text size
and being able to use framebuffer has been fixed.

Edit the file /etc/default/grub, and find the line that
looks like:


Uncomment it, and change it to your desired resolution.  It should be
supported by your video card.  This should cause the initial grub boot
screen to be shown at that resolution, but you would need sighted
assistance to verify this.  Next, find the line that looks like:


Change this to:


Then, run 'sudo update-grub2'.

The user account has to be added to the group "video" (no quotes) by sudo
adduser username video
