Here is link to the patch for vidcontrol that makes it to know if it

Looks like it works fine, but maybe I forgot something :)
So please test it in your own environment.
Big thanks to Ed for preparing that font file!
I applied this patch on a 10.0-STABLE r264390 with a Radeon Mobility X300 (M22)
5460, and DRM2.
I could load an home made terminus 16x32 font (my eyes are too old to work with
a 8x16 font on a 1920x1200 17" screen), by
- looping on each ttyvN in a rc.local script
- adding allscreens_flags="-f terminus-u32" to rc.conf (for /etc/rc.d/syscons
Are you like to share that font?
In fact I generated 12x24, 14x28 and 16x32 fonts from terminus-font-4.38 by
using the tools/tools/vt/fontcvt utility.
I will send you these fonts offlist (because the FreeBSD lists do not like

Huh, it's surprising me. Before your mail I think we have problem with

Looks like I have to concentrate and fix them all at once.
I confirm that scrollback works on ttyv0, but not on others ttyv when a font is
What I have to do to get scrolling on every ttyvN ?
The only way to get the system working in normal VGA mode (640x480) (not loading
the drm2 and radeon kms modules by loader.conf) is by configuring the BIOS to
not do display expansion - which leads to the same ridiculously small font..
And of course, kbdmux keeps being mandatory to be able to load a keymap.
Yeah, I still remember. :)
This could be noted in the newly born vt(4) man page ..
Many thanks Claude!
