Reported by: udragon Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 7.1
Component: System Configuration Version: 7.0.1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


Enabling graphical TTY support by default by
adding "options VESA" and "options SC_PIXEL_MODE" to the PC-BSD kernel config file.

Also automatically selecting the best (highest) resolution for that specific video-card woould be handy

I've toyed with this a bit off / on, but haven't been able to implement it by default for a few reasons. First, "vesa" isn't in the amd64 FreeBSD release. Second, I've run into enough issues with this to think that its not ready for "prime-time" to be enabled on all systems by default. I've had failures with it, and it causing weird xorg crashes as well :(

This is all on 7.x though. I'll gladly take a look at it again in 8.0 to see if some of these problems have gone away, and if so I'll implement it at that time.
