DRM driver resolution at boot time

Zsolt Kantor
Hello to all!

I have a generic question related to OpenBSD 6.2 drm driver (inteldrm in my case). With OpenBSD 6.0 and 6.1 my display is set to the max. resolution at boot time (1280x800), this is great for the tty's because it fills all my screen, and using vi, less and other commands this is the best. But with OpenBSD 6.2 the resolution at boot time is set to 800x600. I read the v6.2 change log and there states that "The inteldrm(4) driver was updated to code based on Linux 4.4.70". This 800x600 resolution for tty's is annoying because it lays in the upper left corner of the screen and because of this it does not fills the entire screen and plus the characters are much smaller, so is harder for the eye to read it. I have three questions. Number one: Is this change in resolution compared to 6.0, 6.1 vs 6.2 probably related to the inteldrm driver update (mentioned above)?. Number two: Is there a way to set the inteldrm resolution at the boot prompt (as I know there is no way)? Number three: I posted this issue to the OpenBSD mailing lists more than one months ago, but nobody took me into account. Question: From the OpenBSD developer's point of view this is not a thing to be fixed? (because I think it is, the reasons why I'm saying this is that I've seen more dmesg outputs from several users, with several hardware configurations, and drm always used a high resolution (at least 1280x800), plus I think the drm driver should always detect the maximum resolution supported by the hardware).


Thanks!
