Hello! As announced a week ago, vt(4) is now the default console driver in 11-CURRENT as of r274085.
You may have to update your console settings in /etc/rc.conf. During boot, /etc/rc.d/syscons will indicate what you need to do. The original HEADS UP mentioned several known issues. Among them, the following were fixed: o A video mode can be selected using the following tunable in /boot/loader.conf: kern.vt.fb.default_mode="1024x768" This only works when using a KMS video driver. It's not supported by the VGA backend. See vt(4) man page for further documentation. o The keyboard was not working when kbdmux(4) was disabled. This is fixed. o After loading a KMS driver, the text cursor was in the middle of the kernel messages. The problem was that the cursor position was not updated after the change in window size. This is fixed. Up-to-date information can be found on the wiki page: https://wiki.freebsd.org/Newcons If you want to keep using syscons(4), you can add the following line to /boot/loader.conf: kern.vty=sc Thank you to everyone who tested and reported problems! Please continue to do so, especially if you find the need to go back to syscons. -- Jean-Sébastien Pédron
