What I'd like to do is to have a default console font that's not blocky.
The default seems to be 640*480. My screen is 1920*1024. I'd like
something like the default console font that OpenBSD uses.
Thing is, there aren't any (it seems - I can't find them) *recent*
complete instructions how to do this on *recent* FreeBSD12. Confusingly,
both sc and vt are in the default kernel. What is best to use?
This is a desktop system, and it runs X fine. It has an nvidia graphics
card, and is using the latest drm-kmod for FreeBSD12. I don't want the
console configuration interfering with the working X setup. But I'd like
a fon't that isn't huge for the times I don't want to start X.
If I follow the console section in the handbook and for instance try
# kldload vesa
I get this error:
module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (vesa, 0xffffffff836c6000, 0) error 19
sysctl_unregister_oid: failed(22) to unregister sysctl(vesa)
# vidcontrol -i mode
(no modes displayed)
Basically all that I'm looking for are instructions about:
1. whether to use sc or vt
2. how to change resolution
3. how to change console font
please would anyone advise?
