I answer for myself :
* It's an acpi related problem, but I still don't know how to debug this
* A turnaround is a script with xrand. Boot FreeBSD with a vga
connection. Start X (I personnaly use startxfce4 WITHOUT any
xorg.conf). In an xterm type xrandr :
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 1280 x 1280
VGA connected 1280x1024+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
376mm x 301mm
1280x1024 60.0*+ 75.0 59.9
1152x864 75.0 74.8
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 75.0 72.8 66.7 60.0
LVDS connected 800x480+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
640x480 85.0 72.8 75.0 59.9
TV disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
You can activate/desactivate the vga port with :
> xrandr --output VGA --off
> xrandr --output VGA --auto
Thanks for :
Follow all the steps except for xorg.conf
Then pick some ideas from
(xorg.conf and vga-toggle)
You are done with a pretty cool screen :
dimensions: 1280x1024 pixels (375x300 millimeters)
resolution: 87x87 dots per inch
depths (7): 24, 1, 4, 8, 15, 16, 32
root window id: 0x7d
depth of root window: 24 planes
The only annoying point is the network interface which doesn't work.
(the wireless is ok) Any idea ?
