Would that mean that I have to add the font (FONT_SPLEEN12x24) to the
/usr/share/wscons/fonts directory and be able to use these fonts? No
need to compile a kernel with that font (since I am using 9.2 stable)?

I have uncommented the font ibm at the start of wscons.conf and set
the vars for ttyE* to the ibm font. But it is saying Device not

ttyE1: wsconscfg: /dev/ttyE1: DEvice not configured

and I did remove the setvars (commenting these out again) and it showed.

wsconscfg WSDISPLAYIO_ADDSCREEN: Device not configured

Will try to get wscons working.
