Yesterday I upgraded to
FreeBSD hostname 9.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT #28: Sat Jan 8
17:05:30 CET 2011
and vidcontrol VESA_800x600 stopped working (again). I exchanged emails
with jkim about a similar problem in February 2010 (vidcontrol
VESA_800x600 would mangle the screen output), there was no definitive
resolution, but it started working again sometime around July 2010.
Now however, when I try to set VESA_800x600, my machine seems to
lockup. It no longer responds to any input, I cannot ping it and I
cannot drop to the debugger.
I've tried setting other modes, but trying to set them results in:
obtaining new video mode parameters: operation not supported by device.
graphics card is a:
vgapci0 at pci0:1:0:0: class=0x030000 card=0x013a1002 chip=0x514c1002
rev=0x00 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'ATI Technologies Inc. / Advanced Micro
Devices, Inc.' device = 'Radeon 8500 / 8500LE (R200)'
class = display
subclass = VGA
Any clues what might have changed?
