NYC*BUG's dmesgd turns up consolectl > Giant warnings only for 12.x and 13.0. current from today. I switched from syscons to vt today but I'm still seeing that warning. I suspect some really old file under /etc/rc.d since I hardly ever update that stuff. My system boots just fine using what's already under /etc and "never change a running system" is my philosophy. BTW I had to make a change to /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver because it tries to get the softc for syscons, which is not present when only vt is in the kernel config file. -- Gary Jennejohn
