I'm just reading through the manual for FreeBSD, and I am at section 3.2.6 "Changing Console Video Modes." This discusses how to change the default console resolution. I would try this out, but as I can only access my FreeBSD box remotely at the moment, I am hesitant to recompile the kernel with the necessary options (I currently get an error when running "#vidcontrol -i mode": "getting active vty: Inappropriate ioctl for device". I assume this is because the current kernel is insufficient?). I'm afraid my computer might need to be booted by hand, which I wouldn't be able to do.
In any case, lacking the ability to experiment, I am curious about different video modes. Will greater resolutions allow me to fit more text on the screen in the console? Of course I know (maybe less than I think) about resolution in terms of graphical environments (e.g., can see more of a high-resolution image w/ a greater resolution), but is it the same for text? Thanks!
