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.
... don't touch the bang bang fruit
