I don't like much to use allscreens_flags to set my tty resolution
because it's done at the end of /etc/rc process. I know we can edit the
hint.sc.0.flags in /boot/device.hints to set the resolution at the
I want to use the 1366x768 mode :
# vidcontrol -i mode
[... snip ...]
496 (0x1f0) 0x0000001f G 1366x768x32 D 8x16 0xa0000 64k 64k
To use this mode I should write hint.sc.0.flags="0x1f00180" where 80
means VESA mode following the sc(4) manpage.
It seems that my resolution is like 1024x768 when I bootup and not the
one I want. However when I use vidcontrol MODE_496 after boot it works
Is there something wrong on my line ?
