In FreeBSD 10 there is new vt driver for having nice framebuffer console. By default it chooses resolution from the EDID data of monitor. However, I have a display that has incorrect EDID data. Therefore, I get the wrong resolution.

How can I specify custom resolution for vt framebuffer console to get this display working correctly?


You should be able to set the kern.vt.fb.default_mode sysctl. See the vt man page for more details.
