I'm guessing that this switch changes the video mode in Linux - have a look at vidcontrol(1) to achieve the same thing here.
The command vidcontrol -i mode will list your available modes - for console work, you're probably only interested in the text ones. Note also that if you load the vesa kernel module with kldload vesa the list will be longer. One of these modes should be the 'native' resolution of your display, which will give you a clear picture. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Troy" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Tuesday, December 30, 2003 7:52 AM Subject: Fuzzy out of focus console w/new flatscreen monitor on bootup > I am using GRUB to boot into Freebsd 4.9 Stable. > > I recently purchased a new flatscreen monitor and when I boot up the > console appears to be very fuzzy. > > I installed the NVIDIA driver and put the proper settings into the > XF86Config and it's clear and in 1600x1200 for X windows. > > While researching, I found that in Linux, folks have used a switch in > grub vga=795 when booting their kernel that gets the console to be much > clearer. > > It doesn't appear that Freebsd supports that switch in grub.
