I ran FreeBSD for the first time last week; I have 4.10 working. Following http://users.rcn.com/rneswold/fbsd-init.html I have set up console fonts in /etc/rc.conf and set up 50-line mode in /etc/ttys. I can use vidcontrol VGA_80x50 and vidcontrol green black from the console to set ttyv0 or whatever virtual terminal I'm using.
I cannot make it set up the VGA_80x50 and 'green black' parameters when booting up. I've tried many iterations of the text in /etc.rc.local or /etc.rc.conf.local and I get errors and failures to boot that forced me to learn about single-user mode to recover. (Probably a good thing that I had to learn about single-user!) I would like the system to boot up into VGA_80x50 and green on black, and I'm stumped.
