Currently the allscreens flags from /etc/rc.conf is set at the very
last during bootup - much after most kernel boot messages are logged
to screen. Is there a way to make the switch to 1024x768 console much
earlier in the boot process?
For example if I boot into single user mode, I get the regular
console with large fonts.
Is it possible to switch to vesa modes much ealier than that?
Linux does it (why can't freebsd?!!) :)
Does it require patching the kernel? Has anyone done this before?
Please reply-to-all as I'm not subscribed. Thanks.
