Summary0001809: kernel doesn't use the vga= parameter for the fb resolution
Descriptioni've tested to use vga= (in decimal and hex format) parameter for the fb resolution to be used but it seems the kernels (both 2.6.18-1.2747.el5 and 2.6.18-8.el5) doesn't know how to handle this.
I don't even see the kernel messages on screen so it means the vga= parameter is not skipped/ignored by the kernel ...
I've tested on 2 different machines (1 desktop and 1 laptop) that were using correctly this parameter with CentOS 4.4

A bug was filled upstream regarding this 'bug' because it's still present with then newer kernel in the updates repo

Upstream has confirmed this 'bug' and will maybe correct this (vesa fb configured in the kernel) for 5.1
