    I've installed CentOS 7 via the standard New... action in Parallels Desktop. I've gotten logged in, and have, for various reasons, turned off the GNOME / graphical boot system, such that the image boots up in a good ol' character command line window. This is working fine, except that the characters are REAL big; I haven't counted, but it looks like an 80x24 display. If I resize the window, I just get bigger characters. Is there a way to get smaller, and thus more, characters?

    FWIW, I'm on a MacBook Pro with a Retina display and a secondary monitor. I get the same big character when the CentOS window is on either display.

    Thanks!
