Easy Qs for ya

Post by Keith K » Thu, 28 Aug 1997 04:00:00



I'm new to FreeBSD system, and have a few easy questions.

1) In VGA text mode, I know that I can display 40- 50- lines by changing
fonts.  Does anyone know how to do this?

2) When I telnet to my system, it doesn't let me log-on as "root".  How do
I change it?

3) How do I disable "auto-logout"?  (Or change the time delay?)

4) Enable screen saver? (Text mode - console)

I guess these questions are very easy for you gurus out there.  :)

Tia.

vidcontrol -f 8x8 iso-8x8.fnt
vidcontrol EGA_80x43 OR VGA_80x50

THis is in /etc/ttys; all the entries marked "insecure" don't allow root
logins. You shouldn't login directly as root over telnet anyway; use su
instead.

In tcsh, I'm guessing? "set autologout <delay>".

Quote:> 4) Enable screen saver? (Text mode - console)

This is in /etc/sysconfig (or /etc/rc.conf if you have a 2.2.2 or newer
system).

There is even VGA_80x60 available.

Or "unset autologout" to completely disable it.

If you want to enable it immediately, there's an option to vidcontrol
to do so.
