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:
But after reboot, it couldn't switch to graphic mode, /var/log/Xorg.0.log says it couldn't find device,

After a few tries, I found the intel_drv.so driver couldn't be loaded,
Here is kldload output:
kldload: an error occurred while loading module /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so. Please check dmesg(8) for more details.
kldload: unexpected relocation type 16
kldload: unexpected relocation type 17
link_elf: symbol _CurrentRuneLocale undefined
I kind of newbie to FreeBSD kernel module, please let me know if there is something wrong with above diagnosis.
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.

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.

Yes, I have installed drm-kmod from pkg;
I loaded i915kms by adding following line to /etc/rc.conf
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:

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.

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.

Thanks Niclas & Jan , After rebuilt drm-*-kmod and change driver-intel.conf to use modesetting, my display now works as 1920x1080.

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 ?
