Don't bother asking why or debating the technical merits, please.

I'd like to run the freeness console at 80x50 or 80x60 mode, AFAIK the video chip in the server supports it and so does FreeBSD, However a "vidcontrol -i mode" returns:

index.php

Did you find a solution for this?
Nope, otherwise I’d have posted it here. I did myself going down the road of what had been stripped out of the kernel console driver and gave up there. More schizophrenic “FreeNAS is an Appliance” stuff I presumed.

I didn't post on this because you said not to. I tried to change this myself a while back but the problem I had was that FreeNAS resets the config at every reboot. Any change I made didn't survive and that is something that the developers of FreeNAS have done. Perhaps in an effort to ensure the broadest compatibility with hardware? I spent days on it and things that should have worked didn't. I know why I wanted it and you probably want it for a similar reason. It would be nice to be able to change the console resolution. Maybe you should put in a feature request.
