Description buffy 2020-11-22 01:02:10 UTC
Recently I tried to install FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE, after install mate as DE, the resolution didn't seem good to me, so I edited driver-intel.conf as instructed (I have a Intel(R) i5-4690K CPU as Integrated graphics card), the content of it as below: org.conf.d/driver-intel.conf Section "Device" Identifier "Card0" Driver "intel" BusID "PCI0:0:2:0" EndSection But after reboot, it couldn't switch to graphic mode, /var/log/Xorg.0.log says it couldn't find device, [ 11.163] (II) LoadModule: "intel" [ 11.163] (II) Loading /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so [ 11.165] (II) Module intel: vendor="X.Org Foundation" [ 11.165] compiled for 1.20.9, module version = 2.99.917 [ 11.165] Module class: X.Org Video Driver [ 11.165] ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 24.1 [ 11.165] (II) intel: Driver for Intel(R) Integrated Graphics Chipsets: i810, i810-dc100, i810e, i815, i830M, 845G, 854, 852GM/855GM, 865G, 915G, E7221 (i915), 915GM, 945G, 945GM, 945GME, Pineview GM, Pineview G, 965G, G35, 965Q, 946GZ, 965GM, 965GME/GLE, G33, Q35, Q33, GM45, 4 Series, G45/G43, Q45/Q43, G41, B43 [ 11.165] (II) intel: Driver for Intel(R) HD Graphics [ 11.165] (II) intel: Driver for Intel(R) Iris(TM) Graphics [ 11.165] (II) intel: Driver for Intel(R) Iris(TM) Pro Graphics [ 11.165] (--) Using syscons driver with X support (version 2.0) [ 11.165] (++) using VT number 9 [ 11.165] (EE) No devices detected.

This error usually happens when there is no installed graphics driver. Have you installed drm-kmod from ports, and are you loading /boot/modules/i915kms.ko properly? You should generally not need xf86-video-intel, nor an xorg configuration. The modesetting driver, which is installed and used by default should be enough.

(In reply to buffy from comment #0) > FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE [...] > kldload: unexpected relocation type 16 > kldload: unexpected relocation type 17 > link_elf: symbol _CurrentRuneLocale undefined Did you rebuild drm-*-kmod after upgrade? Packages from pkg.freebsd.org are built on the oldest *supported* release of a given branch. xf86-video-intel requires KMS drivers for anything newer than i810/i815.
Comment 3 buffy 2020-11-22 15:06:47 UTC
(In reply to Niclas Zeising from comment #1) Yes, I have installed drm-kmod from pkg; I loaded i915kms by adding following line to /etc/rc.conf kld_list="/boot/modules/i915kms.ko" I installed xf86-video-intel because of the default resolution which is too low for my display(currently 1024x768, but I have a display of 1920x1080 res). Here is my loaded kernel modules: Id Refs Address Size Name 1 43 0xffffffff80200000 227ad00 kernel 2 1 0xffffffff82a11000 12ccb0 i915kms.ko 3 1 0xffffffff82b3e000 76570 drm.ko 4 4 0xffffffff82bb5000 12d30 linuxkpi.ko 5 3 0xffffffff82bc8000 12f30 linuxkpi_gplv2.ko 6 2 0xffffffff82bdb000 6d0 debugfs.ko 7 1 0xffffffff82bdc000 1860 uhid.ko 8 1 0xffffffff82bde000 1a40 wmt.ko 9 1 0xffffffff82be0000 d890 snd_uaudio.ko 10 1 0xffffffff82bee000 2908 ums.ko 11 1 0xffffffff82bf1000 acf mac_ntpd.ko 12 1 0xffffffff82bf2000 87d0 tmpfs.ko

(In reply to Jan Beich from comment #2) No, I haven't been upgrade, its a fresh install from a Freebsd-12.2-Release image; And I didn't build drm-*-kmod from ports, just installed them from pkg, I only rebuilt xf86-video-intel from ports.
Comment 5 Niclas Zeising 2020-11-23 08:45:58 UTC
(In reply to buffy from comment #4) Hi! As Jan already explained, you need to build drm-*-kmod *locall* on the machine you are going to run it on. This is because packages for FreeBSD 12.2 is still built on 12.1, and this breaks drm-*-kmod.
Comment 6 buffy 2020-11-24 23:02:56 UTC
(In reply to Niclas Zeising from comment #5) Thanks Niclas & Jan , After rebuilt drm-*-kmod and change driver-intel.conf to use modesetting, my display now works as 1920x1080. > As Jan already explained, you need to build drm-*-kmod *locall* on the machine you are going to run it on. This is because packages for FreeBSD 12.2 is still built on 12.1, and this breaks drm-*-kmod. Should this be treated as a problem? Because if the user going to install FreeBSD 12.2, they are not aware to rebuilt drm-*-kmod if they don't get the desired resolution, or the pkg package need to be updated ?
