After looking at upgrading from FreeBSD 10.4 to 11.2, I noticed vidcontrol -I no longer works:
***@freebsd11:~ # vidcontrol -i adapter
vidcontrol: getting adapter information: Inappropriate ioctl for device
See here for screenshots, the text just looks way too small on a 4k screen:
After some digging I found 'CONS_MODEINFO'
Which is implemented in 'syscons':
But not in 'vt':
That's also explained in:
"No support for several vidcontrol(1) features."
Think appropriate patch to vt would be to add VESA mode support too:
Is anyone working on adding vidcontrol support to vt? Think I might explore it in the upcoming months.
Currently, can the mode/resolution of FreeBSD 11 be changed in vt without a graphics card?
I'm running FreeBSD as a VM in Hyper-V Server,
