NAME

display-vgl : FreeBSD/i386 console display  

SYNOPSIS

display-vgl:[-nodb|-usedb]

 

DESCRIPTION

Displays on the FreeBSD/i386 console. 16 and 32bit direct color support with the latest FreeBSD vgl(3) library (FreeBSD > R5.0 and a patch is available for FreeBSD R4.x series).

Like VGL, the vgl-display depends on the current VGA/VESA modes and you must load the vesa.ko module to get advanced modes (higher than 680x480x8).  

OPTIONS

-nodb
Don't use directbuffer.

-usedb
Make use of directbuffer.

 

FEATURES

True color support is best with directbuffer. Your board must provide VESA 2.1 compliance to use directbuffer. If it's an old S3 board, use the s3.ko module to access it's framebuffer (FreeBSD > R5.0).
Unaccelerated (VESA).
