I installed FreeBSD 11.2 on my DELL Latitude E7470 with UEFI (might be important). By default it does not install a GUI and that is fine by me (for now). Using the
<Fn> keys I can switch between different virtual terminals.
I'm stuck with a 1920x1080 screen resolution
This results in way too small characters for me to read comfortably.
- I tried enterind
mode 0in /boot/loader.conf to switch to 800x600 mode but that does not work. It does work however when I press the
<Esc>key during boot and enter it at the boot prompt.
gop set <n>crashes the laptop, i.e. the screen goes black and the laptop does not respond to any keys anymore.
Anyone has any ideas on how to fix this?
