Console resolution on sparc64?

    Is there any way to implement something like VESA on a sparc machine?

    I have a Sunfire v880 with a pgx64(rage-xl/mach64) graphics card.

    What about ppc? I figured the solution would work for both, as open firmware is basically the same. But wait, ppc already has a high-res console! Am I missing something in my rc.conf or my kernel config?

    On x86 I can use vidcontrol and VESA. But not on sparc.

    I hope I don't sound like an idiot here.

    You may want to use both OpenBSD and Gentoo documentation for SPARC64 boxes.
