Running the FreeBSD 12 Release on the Raspberry Pi. In /boot/loader.conf I changed beastie_disable to "NO" so I would get the boot menu. As shown in the image below, the bootloader doesn't clear the screen and it's very difficult to see what's going on.

Did I do something wrong? Is this a bug? Where is this info documented?

Sooo. oitdmser.

:D

Is "NO" a typo? The man page for /boot/loader.conf only gives "YES" as an option to get to the boot menu.

"NO" is not a typo. The default is beastie_disable="YES" which boots without a menu.

In my testing I have found either of the following have the result illustrated in the OP:

beastie_disable="NO"
#beastie_disable="YES"
