Hi, the same problem was on my side. All (except one) VESA modes did not satisfy me. But I found something: Try the VESA_800x600 mode (see man vidcontrol) - to do so run vidconrtol -g 100x37 VESA_800x600. First you have to recompile your kernel with: - options SC_OIXEL_MODE enabled (so you can use the raster text mode). - compile the vesa support or simply load it with kldload vesa - vidconrtol -g 100x37 VESA_800x600. If it is o.k. for you put in your /etc/rc.conf file: allscreens_flags="-g 100x37 VESA_800x600" and add to /boot/loader.conf: vesa_load="YES" to load the vesa module at startup.
