I have Fedora 17 installed on VMWare Fusion 3 on my Macbook Pro 2009. I run Fedora 17 in CLI mode and find I cannot enlarge the window size. The small terminal window size causes text to wrap and hard to read. But when I try to size the window it doesn't let me.

How to resize host windows in VMWare fusion?

Isn't this expected behavior? I've never seen a terminal with different dimensions. Consider SSHing into the VMware client and using it as your terminal. There you can resize the window how you like it. – Max Ried Jun 30 '12 at 9:28
Additionally this might be more appropriate on SU – Max Ried Jun 30 '12 at 11:13
@KMC, I'm in agreement with MaxRied about migrating this to SuperUser. – ephsmith Jun 30 '12 at 18:03
