Re: Choosing console output

That is odd. 9.1 on amd64 mirrors to all attached displays (at least,
it does to an HDMI display)

How can I force the console output to be on DVI ? I found nothing in sysctl, wsconsctl.

As far as I can tell, there are no in-kernel knobs to do this
(yet). You can switch displays after userland comes up. Eg. using
xrandr if running X. If not running X, then a small program can be
written to do what the X server does (using libdrm/ioctl calls).
