How do I automate this at bootup?
By setting your preferred mode in `/etc/rc.conf': allscreens_flags="80x30" Note that for non-default modes, you also have to set up a font in your `rc.conf' file, otherwise vidcontrol will refuse to change the console mode at bootup, so a more complete example would be: font8x8="iso-8x8.fnt" allscreens_flags="80x60" After saving these in your `/etc/rc.conf' file you don't have to reboot for them to take effect, something like the following should work too: hostname# /bin/sh # vidcontrol -f 8x8 iso-8x8.fnt # for dev in /dev/ttyv* ; do vidcontrol 80x60 < "$dev" ; done _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
