Hi, I've seen several posts with similar issues, but none of them have
helped me resolve my own. I am using 7.2-RELEASE on my laptop with an Intel
i915 graphics card. My problem is that Xorg refuses to start (most of the
time) and posts an error in the log:
drmDropMaster failed: Unknown Error -1
I have gotten X to start on occasion, but I've never been able to get
fluxbox to start. The command "Xorg -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf -retro"
always works correctly.
dmesg output: http://pastebin.com/f7d02e787
Any help would be very much appreciated.

I didn't realize you had 'AutoAddDevices' in ServerLayout at first..
Still, give "AllowEmptyInput" "off" a shot.
Thanks for the quick responses:
I went ahead and gave it a try - to no avail. Ironically, I have
never had any of the mouse/keyboard issues that people have complained
about. My issue is that I just can't get X to start - it appears the
drm driver is failing on me.
I already have both hald and dbus loading in rc.conf. All of my
packages have been compiled from ports.
