For people needing WITH_NEW_XORG, an alternate pkg(8) repository is now
online. It contains a subset of packages affected by this knob: you
must keep the primary repository enabled while using the new one.
The URL is:
The following FreeBSD releases are supported:
o FreeBSD 9.x/amd64
o FreeBSD 9.x/i386
o FreeBSD 10.x/amd64
o FreeBSD 10.x/i386
It's not available for FreeBSD 8.x because newer KMS drivers aren't
included in this release. It's not available for FreeBSD 11-CURRENT
either because WITH_NEW_XORG is already the default (ie. packages from
the primary repository are built with WITH_NEW_XORG).
Packages are updated once a week, like the primary repository.
To use it, you need to declare this new repository. Here's how to do it:
mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos
cat > /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD_new_xorg.conf <<EOF
# It is still required to have /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf installed and enabled.
# If that file is missing or if /usr/share/keys/pkg is missing see:
These new repositories will remain available until 9.1-RELEASE, 9.2-RELEASE
and 10.0-RELEASE are past there end-of-life dates . Note that pkg(8) should gain
repository EOL support meanwhile, so you'll be notified in that case.
