            Bug ID: 210413
           Summary: vidcontrol -c <normal|blink|destructive> does not work
                    with vt(4)
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Keywords: vt
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: emaste at freebsd.org

As reported on FreeBSD-current[1] setting the blink style via vidcontrol -c
does not work with vt(4).

> I found the cause of this boot time message
> "vicontrol: setting cursor type: Inappropriate ioctl for device"
>
> In my rc.conf I had this statement
> vidcontrol -c blink -h 250
> From testing it seems that vt does not handle the "blink" option for causing the cursor to blink.
