You should try to compile xorg from ports with the WITHOUT_NOUVEAU knob
placed in your /etc/make.conf. This will install a more recent libdrm,
dri and so on. It may helps.
Also see the UPDATING note related to :
AFFECTS: users of Mesa3D libraries and x11-drivers/xf86-video-nouveau
AUTHOR: nork at FreeBSD.org
If you want to use Mesa3D 7.6.1 and libdrm 2.4.17 rather than 7.4.4
and 2.4.12, you must define WITHOUT_NOUVEAU global macro, at least,
enabled on graphics/libGL*, graphics/libglut, graphics/dri,
graphics/mesa-demos, and graphics/libdrm. And please give up using
At this time, I cannot enable latest Mesa3D and libdrm, because they
break xf86-video-nouveau. But old (current?) Mesa3D and libdrm do not
break any drivers.
AMD Radeon HD 2xxx/3xxx/4xxx users: If you use AMD Radeon HD xxx
series, please define WITHOUT_NOUVEAU global macro. You can then use
OpenGL Hardware Accelerator feature on these series.
