Description Stefan Parvu 2015-03-26 22:18:17 UTC
Im currently running 11.0-CURRENT #0 r277486 on Asus Zenbook laptop.

I have discovered Im not able to update to any new snapshots after
r277486. Xorg refuses to work, Im getting a blank screen with no possibility to
have a functional vt restoration. I always need to reboot. The kernel is up
I can use the keyboard so the only trouble seems to come from Xorg / vt.

I have tried updating my laptop to: r278452, r278908, r279514, r279813.
No luck.  If I go back to use r277486 then my Xorg and vt start functioning 
correctly. Im using the i915 driver for Xorg and my config is in [1]. 

Any ideas what is this about ? Were any changes after r277486 regarding 
i915 or Xorg ? I tried to create a new xorg.conf, reuse the old one whatever.
No luck.

I have tried to adjust the brightness of the LCD by using: hw.acpi.video.lcd0.brightness but did not work.

This is not a FreeBSD supported release.

Adjusting Version to 11.4 for lack of a better option.
