Mint 17 32bit on VMWare Fusion v3 (Mac OSX)

Postby jordiv on Wed Jun 25, 2014 5:40 am

Howdy,

When I boot from the lm17 32bi iso image in my VMWare Fusion v3 (yes I know it's old), I get the desktop, but everything is tiny. It appears like a giant monitor from far far away :)

So I tried the alternative boot option with no luck.
I tried editing the boot line forcing the resolution, using the command
Code: Select all
grub_gfxmode=1024x768x16
from here no luck.

It always boots in this odd super high resolution that is impossible to see what is going on.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

PS: I managed to install it under VirtualBox but I'd rather have it in VMware Fusion since it is properly optimised for the host OS.
