I followed some advice on how to get higher resolutions on the console for my 1280x1024 LCD monitor.
I recompiled the kernel with options VESA options SC_PIXEL_MODE After a vidcontrol MODE_282 I get a 1280x1024 console. Nice, but the characters are just "fat" compared to the chars I get in Xorg running the same resolution setting (those terminal chars are very sharp). Furthermore it "feels" as though the screen has become a little slower then without vesa and sc_pixel_mode (in the console). Can this be? Or is this just my imagination. The console resolution has to be delt with because the default font is really HUGE ;-) Question: is VESA the way to go or is it better to leave this out of the kernel and do just something with the buildin "-f" (font) in vidcontrol. I have font8x8/8x14/8x16 in my /etc/rc.conf Your comments and advise please. -- dick -- http://nagual.nl/ -- PGP/GnuPG key: F86289CE ++ Running FreeBSD 6.1 ++ The Power to Serve _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
