In a fresh install of FreeBSD-13.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso in VirtualBox 6.1.32 (Ubuntu 20.04.4 host), I wanted to increase the console dimensions and console font size, so I followed the instructions here: How to increase vt console size in VirtualBox image.
(Note: that post uses the FreeBSD...
A reasonably recent Xorg running on Intel UHD Graphics 610 (see here) under FreeBSD 12.3 with vt over efifb suddenly stopped to switch virtual consoles. When [Ctr]+[Alt]+[Fn] is pressed, the process says
Otherwise GUI functions as usual. Never observed this behaviors with an older...
I'm trying to install/configure OpenBSD bhyve guests, by following these instructions.
Host OS: FreeBSD 13
Guest OS: OpenBSD 6.9
First, when I connect to the VM using VNC, I notice that it actually uses a different console. The text which are output the KDE Konsole terminal console is different...
My “FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE r354233” box sometimes shuts down its output VGA signal after I disconnect (physically) a monitor from the cable. Everything else works: keyboard, X server, even virtual console switching succeeds (as indicated with vidcontrol -i active </dev/ttyv1) and may be...
I'm using FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE-p1 with Xorg, GDM and Xfce on my laptop Dell Latitude 3440. Everything works well, except by one detail: everytime i lock the screen and its turn off or it blanks after programed time, I can press any key on keyboard or move the touchpad, but the screen...
I’m trying to decrease the screen resolution for the console on my laptop which has a default resolution 1920x1080 ( 12.5 ‘’) booting in UEFI.
At the end of the boot, I got a nice console very bright and clear but with it's very very small and makes the reading very complicated
Hello, I have installed an AMD GPU to my system in order to use GPU accelerated OpenCL (Not OpenGL). My system uses onboard Intel graphics with syscons(4) for console display (I didn't install X) But after the GPU installation server only outputs through the GPU's VGA port rather than...
FreeBSD 12-STABLE, FreeBSD 13-CURRENT, FreeBSD 13-ALPHA1, FreeBSD 10-STABLE, FreeBSD 11-STABLE
they all detect my mouse, connected via USB and mapped to /dev/uhid0.
uhidctl -f /dev/uhid0 -l -a works as expected showing mouse movements and keypresses.
Attaching moused to /dev/uhid0 moused tells...
Good day Friends!
I have a kms enabled console with graphics/drm-kmod installed and loaded.
Is it possible view video without X through multimedia/mpv?
I'm install it and from
mpv -vo help gives that options:
Available video outputs:
libmpv render API for libmpv
I have a small laptop ASUS EeePC 1215, with AMD Radeon 6310 video card.
So I have i386 system installed with vt console enabled:
It has a native internal LVDS resolution: 1024x600, but I need use it...
Install FreeBSD 12.2 with Gnome, when installing the nvidia-driver all the tty (Control + alt + F (x) look like this
After upgrading from FreeBSD 12.1 to 12.2-RELEASE, my machine boots and runs fine, but it no longer displays a full native resolution text console on a 17" monitor. I get the giant default 80x25 display instead. Running "vidcontrol -i mode" returns no information at all.
This is a 2015 vintage...
Ī am long accustomed to handling of video adapters by Linux. But now doing some setup and testing with FreeBSD 12.1 where things go differently. In spite of all my efforts, the system (except for Xorg) makes no reasonable job on video modes: not a single time did...
There is a port which provides matrix effect misc/termatrix. If it running by hand on a logged console all works, but I want to get it working right after booting.
I try to do that by creating /etc/rc.local
su username -c /usr/local/bin/termatrix &
After booting it starts...
In FreeBSD 12.1 backspace in terminal only deletes one byte of multibyte character.
# cat > /tmp/test
# cat /tmp/test
# hexdump -C /tmp/test
74 d1 74 0a
Where 'ы' is a russian letter (D18B in hexadecimal form). You may see that only second byte of multibyte...
What am I missing?
% cat /boot/loader.conf
% conscontrol list
I get boot messages on both ttyu1 and ttyv0.
This is in BeagleBone Black, if it matters.
This is not about X. In general. For example, how to get console on LCD?
When running the official FreeBSD 12.0 for BeagleBone I see:
% grep fb0 /var/run/dmesg.boot
fb0: <AM335x LCD controller> mem 0x4830e000-0x4830efff irq 43 on simplebus0
But there is no such device node. Am I missing something?
How to change the default serial console? I couldn't find any reference.
In my case (BeagleBone Black) the boot messages and login prompt go to /dev/ttyu0. With the peripherals I use that port is not accessible, and I'd like to use /dev/ttyu1 instead.
I don't care much about boot messages, but I...
First of all, hello to all members and the FreeBSD staff. First time here, I'm bruno from italy, a FreeBSD addicted (but also to other BSDs and micro-kernel architectures like Minix, and hybrid microkernel-BSD likes such as MacOsX), and a software programmer unemployed at the moment. Thank you...
