# ls -l
total 8
drwxr-xr-x   7 root     other        512 Jul 20 09:19 gdm
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     other        512 Jul 20 09:00 serverconfig
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     other        512 Jul 20 09:00 starthere

Try fbconfig– Frame Buffer configuration utility

/usr/sbin/fbconfig

i.e.

/usr/sbin/fbconfig -res 1600x1200x60
