Actually, I have already modified various settings, such as:
# wscons options
options WSEMUL_VT100 # VT100 / VT220 emulation
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_PCVT # emulate some ioctls
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_SYSCONS # emulate some ioctls
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_USL # VT handling
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_RAWKBD # can get raw scancodes
and uncommented font line in /etc/wscons.conf
and added lines for 80x50 as documented and varied 132x50 and vt220
all to no avail.
I tried the various suggestions in this thread haven't succeeded at getting
it to boot in 80x50 mode.
at boot time it also reports:
wsconscfg: already configured (4 times)
but dmesg says that screen 4 succeeded (?? exceeds Kernel count?@5th)
I have a /dev/ttyE4, but ctrl-alt-F5 is a blank screen and the cursor
appears to be sized for 80x25
Why can't I overide the runtime config of wscons if I'm root?
Is there some way to just set the default I want when compiling the kernel?
