vidcontrol: invalid video mode name
I tried to change foreground/background color of the virt. console (ttyv1) with command `vidcontrol lightwhite black` but haven't got any success. The program reports "vidcontrol: invalid video mode name". The syntax seems to be correct because on FreeBSD (latest) it works fine.
Do I miss something or it's a bug?
PC: Netbook Eee PC 900AX
OS: DragonFlyBSD 3.2.1
I am sorry for my english, it's still very poor.
Hope that my message is understandable.

When I specify a mode first, it works for me. Thanks! But I think we should correct a man page. `man vidcontrol` says that `vidcontrol yellow blue` will work and that's not true. Or correct vidcontrol command.
I'm sure about FreeBSD. I've booted from cd with 9.1 release on my netbook and was able to change colors with the above command.
