https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=259019 --- Comment #4 from email@example.com --- @Ed Maste -- This has nothing to do with the syntax used to specify the syntax used to specify the kernel module in rc.conf. Read on. I have revisited this, as I am now using FreeBSD more widely than was the case when I originally reported this. So I need it working reliably on the machine with which I had the problem originally reported. Reinstalling FreeBSD 13 on that machine, I found that with the line KLD_LIST="radeonkms" in rc.conf, the system would crash while booting, as I originally reported. Installing xf86-video-ati made the situation slightly better. The system would occasionally boot, but more often than not, it would crash while booting. Additionally installing xf86-video-amdgpu solves the problem. Now the system boots reliably. I think the fix is either to make both of the xf86-video-* drivers dependencies of the drm-kms package, or at the very least, fix the documentation to note that if you are going to try to use the radeonkms driver on an old AMD-based system, you need to install the two X drivers or you will have the serious problem I encountered. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
