As requested <a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>:

Code: Select all
pkg -i

svgardesktop v1.5.0 is a remote desktop client using <a href='' target='_blank'>SVGAlib</a>.

        ***-- This package is officially unapproved at this time --***
        ***-- loading this program could damage your system or --***
        ***-- cause an unwanted vulnerability to outside attacks --***

You need a SVGALib 1.4.3 compatible SVGA video card and a monitor
that can at least display 640x480 in 256 colors
<span style='color:red'>The package is pre-configured for a VESA card, so it may not run!</span>
You can try the <ESC> key to close the svgardesktop session
but your screen may stay garbled until you reboot!

Commands svgardesktop and svidtune are now installed
but before running them make sure to edit /etc/vga/libvga.config
to match the video card and monitor timing of your FREESCO!
To facalitate editing you can also use rc_svga setup

See svgardesktop.txt in package 'man' menu for details about this package
or run svgardesktop without arguments.
