With xdm, it's saying /dev/ttyE4 isn't configured.
Make sure the device file exists. If not, "cd /dev ; ./MAKEDEV wscons".
Next, make sure your kernel wants to do wscons.
Next, make sure "wscons=YES" in /etc/rc.conf.
Next, make sure /etc/wscons.conf exists. The relevant bits:
#screen 0 - vt100
screen 1 - vt100
screen 2 - vt100
screen 3 - vt100
screen 4 - -
screen 5 - vt100
You might need screen 0, but it's likely that that has been configured by
the kernel already. (If you like, try it with screen 0 uncommented. If you
see a "device busy" error from wscons, you can re-comment it. It won't hurt
anything either way.)
