I have installed 11.0-ALPHA4-i386-20160617-r301975. The console looks very different from all previous releases. I find it to be harder to read. This manifests it self with the boot log messages and the normal behavior of the virtual consoles.
But the real problem is in the notable hesitation when switching between virtual consoles. From the boot log (ie: dmesg) I see this VT(vga): resolution 640x480 This must be what is making the console display so different from previous releases. Can VT be configured to default to present the same console behavior as previous releases before this version of 11.0 gets published as RELEASE? About the "hesitation when switching between virtual consoles" I am thinking that this reduced performance may be caused by WITNESS being enabled in the ALPHA series of releases. Can anyone verify that this hesitation will not exist in the published RELEASE? In the boot log I get this message 16 times. "vicontrol: setting cursor type: Inappropriate ioctl for device" They don't seem to cause any problems that I have stumbled across. Is anyone else getting these "NOTICE" type messages? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
