Im using FreeBSD 6.2, how to adjust the resolution of the console mode? I used vidcontrol command and i get the following error:
Code:
$vidcontrol MODE_261
0A7F0G0H7Ividcontrol: cannot activate raster display: Inappropriate ioctl for device
0A7F0G0H7Ividcontrol: cannot activate raster display: Inappropriate ioctl for device
usage: vidcontrol [-CdHLPpx] [-b color] [-c appearance] [-f [size] file]
                  [-g geometry] [-h size] [-i adapter | mode] [-l screen_map]
                  [-M char] [-m on | off] [-r foreground background]
                  [-S on | off] [-s number] [-t N | off] [mode]
                  [foreground [background]] [show]

no. 261 is for 1024x768x8 resolution, I even tried lower resolutions but it shows the same error.
The vidcontrol -i adapter shows the following output:

Code:
fb0:
    vga0, type:VESA VGA (5), flags:0x700ff
    initial mode:24, current mode:24, BIOS mode:3
    frame buffer window:0xb8000, buffer size:0x8000
    window size:0x8000, origin:0x0
    display start address (0, 0), scan line width:80
    reserved:0x0
I use i810 driver in my x.org config file.
