"The eeepc's bios have its resolutions listed incorrectly. This prevents us
from using the console with a framebuffer at the resolution of 800×480. That
is unless we use the 915resolution tool. Now I've seen guides that say to use
915resolution + klibc and, v86d using the userspace, kernelspace linker.
However I found this buggy, though lucky for there is an alternative. Nathan
Coulson wrote a patch for Grub2 that lets us use 915resolution before we load
our kernel. This eliminates the need for klibc ,v86d, and the kernel linker.
It also appears to a lot more stable." (from:

Sorry if I copied-paste the website (it's creative common) but I'd like to
suggest you to introduce that patch in grub2

Includes 915resolution support directly into grub2. This solution is more
straight forward than kernel patches supported by userspace drivers. It was
meant for 1.96 but may work also in svn
