can i be helped?

Yes. Presumably your system is using "kernel mode setting", wherein
the kernel is able to set the resolution of the screen. This results,
as you note, in a high-resolution console.

would there be any simple way (instead of recompiling the kernel) to
disable that kernel mode setting for the resolution?
