FreeBSD Console High Screen Resolution

Hi! Anyone wanted a to change FreeBSD console screen resolution like on Linux Frame Buffer Console ? - Here it is.

open /boot/device.hints

find and comment out line:
#hint.sc.0.flags="0x100"
after that line add these lines
hint.sc.0.flags="0x180"
hint.sc.0.vesa_mode="257"

257 - mode stands for "1366x768x32"
274 - also does the same

Other modes you can get by typing "vidcontrol -i mode" for example.: "vidcontrol -i mode|grep 1366"

  1. can you explain "hint.sc.0.flags="0x180""? what other values could go here, ie instead of 180?

  2. from the freebsd forum seems only 180 is used there.
