Description Oleg 2020-08-12 15:08:46 UTC
This problem has existed for many months already. While I am on the console (x11 or wayland are not loaded), 8 BSD logos sometimes appear in the left corner of my screen. The problem can be seen in the attachment provided. I use drm-devel-kmod/i915kms. I am running FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT r364115, but as I said, this problem has existed for many months already.

This seems like it might be a bug in VT splash CPUs; as a workaround, the (non-default) splash cpus can be disabled by removing kern.vt.splash_cpu from loader.conf and sysctl.conf, or by setting a zero value.

While investigating PR 211922 I observed orb logos, despite kern.vt.splash_cpu=0.
