Hi, I am running 5.4-STABLE and I would like to have better
resolution
(more lines and columns) when I boot into console.  I used to be
able
to issue a command once there but I have forgotten that command.  I
remember trying to allude to it via rc.conf or a startup file
(rc.local?) but it did not work.  It seems to me that I needed the
following in my rc.conf as a pre-requisite:

font8x8="iso-8x8.fnt"
font8x14="iso-8x14.fnt"
font8x16="iso-8x16.fnt"

So does anyone know how I can automatically get smaller fonts in my
console?


You need to recompile your kernel with below
options         VESA

Allright, did that.

You need to include these in your rc.conf
allscreens_flags="132x25"

I'm trying manually first and it's a "no go".  This is the output of
'vidcontrol -i mode':
