The linux kernel don't enable the font for HiDPI screen resolution in the config.

This causes problems for the installation with HiDPI and should be a more durable solution than the setfont (tty problems) or lower the resolution.

Additional info:

* config :
* the CONFIG_FONT_TER16x32 is not set to Y

This task depends upon
