VESA MODULE - PF Sense Snapshot 2.0 RC Newest

  • Hello,

    Can someone compile the vesa module so it can be activated manually?

    Here you go.
    This is from FreeBSD 8.1_rel i386.
    The file (after you've removed the .png extension) should be 22,954B.



  • Thanks,

    Test it in a bit.

  • Works but I need SC_PIXEL_MODE enabled in the kernel.

    Anyone have a easy way to get SC_PIXEL_MODE in the kernel without recompiling?

    Anyone know how I an install my source for the pfsense distro I have now?

    Can you describe what you are trying to accomplish?

    That would be more helpful information than asking how to get "option x".

    If you setup your own builder you could edit the kernel config and make your own image.

  • First.  Thanks for the response.

    2.0 RC (Snapshot)

    I want to get vesa or anything similar working so I can have a higher resolution on my firewall laptop then 640x480.

    To get vesa working the kernel needs the option SC_PIXEL_MODE.  I have be asking and trying to figure out how to either compile my own kernel, or find a different way to get SC_PIXEL_MODE in the kernel.

    Cant I just get the pfSense code and recompile the kernel with this in it?  How do I do that?

    From what I have read is that the pfSense kernel is custom (has custom code in it) is this right or is it just the standard FreeBSD kernel?

    I was looking at the above link.  Originally I thought that by following the directions above I would come out with a working developer pfsense system.  I think I am wrong.  That is the above link just creates a system that can generate ISOs right?  Is above what I need to do?  If so can I do this in vmware to make i386 images?

    In the end, I think it would be nice to have a dev box that doesn't necessary generate images but allows me to mod it on the fly.

    The ova image there is a complete, ready-to-use builder system that will generate normal i386 images (ISO images, nanobsd, update files, etc).
