Problem and possible resolution for intel kms modules resulting in black screen
|Reported by:||malco_2001||Owned by:|
I've tested the both the 9.2 release and 9 stable release on an intel mac mini as well as an asus n53sn laptop. The intel mac mini has an intel hd3000. The asus has an nvidia optimus. For both I've had to unload the intel kms modules during the first boot as well as permanently in loader.conf. After setting both the i915kms and drm2 modules to no and regenerating grub I was able to complete the display wizard. I have confirmed that 3d works with my intel mac mini. The asus n35sn video works in vesa mode after unloading these modules. According to the following page these modules should be loaded by Xorg automatically.
