FreeBSD video console (vidconsole) on the Raspberry Pi

In the default configuration with FreeBSD on the Raspberry console messages are written on the serial console.

After a "shutdown now" one cannot enter commands from a connected USB keyboard.

I tried to enable the video console but adding


to /boot/loader.conf just results in an error message from the bootloader.



to /etc/sysctl.conf does the trick!

Note that one still cannot enter input for the bootloader in the early boot stages. I have not found a solution for that issue (probably needs different options for UBLDR), you will have to use a serial console for now.

1 opmerking:

  1. This way my partner Wesley Virgin's autobiography starts in this SHOCKING and controversial video.

    You see, Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "mind control" tactics that the CIA and others used to get everything they want.

    As it turns out, these are the same secrets tons of famous people (especially those who "became famous out of nothing") and top business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You probably know that you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    That's because most of your brainpower is UNTAPPED.

    Maybe that expression has even taken place IN YOUR very own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain 7 years back, while driving an unlicensed, beat-up trash bucket of a car without a driver's license and $3.20 in his bank account.

    "I'm very frustrated with living check to check! Why can't I turn myself successful?"

    You've been a part of those those types of questions, am I right?

    Your very own success story is going to be written. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.
