Description delleceste 2016-07-01 12:33:20 UTC
I've just received a new 34" Dell monitor, but I am unable to start X on freebsd.
When I bring resolution above 2560x1080, for example 2560x1440 or 3440x1440 (which is the resolution I use in Linux), the screen goes off and the only thing I can do is restart the computer with Ctrl Alt Canc. I can't switch back to text console.

Is this resolution too high for the current i915kms driver?
Is something I can do?

dmesg says:

Ok with resolutions < 2560x1440.

Thanks for any help.

Comment 1 Alexey Dokuchaev freebsd_committer 2020-09-28 18:28:41 UTC
Do you still experience these problems with recent versions of FreeBSD and graphics stack + video drivers?  Note that DRM support had moved out of the base system/kernel to the `graphics/drm-*-kmod' and `graphics/gpu-firmware-kmod' ports.

Your report was against 10.3-RELEASE which went out of support long time ago.  Please update to contemporary, supported FreeBSD version and reconduct your tests.

Adding x11@ to CC list so it can be tracked while originally filed under base system/kern.

Hello Dear Alexey. I have no installation at the moment to provide a reply. Yes it is an old issue, I suggest closing it as I think it will have been solved in the meantime.
