Dear Maintainer,

this is has been affecting me for a while, and I noticed that is shared among
other users:


My host is Win10 PRO 64Bit, Unfortunately I couldn't find any meaningful logs
for troubleshooting it: the screen goes black and it looks like nothing is
recorded anywhere therefore I was only able to reproduce the bug:

1. Download
2. Extract
3. Create a new virtual machine (FreeBSD 64Bit): PAE/NX & Nested VT-x/AMD-V
enabled; Paravirtualization interface: default; nested paging enabled.
4. Installation from ISO: basic installation, with clear ZFS filesystem, 64GB
(dynamic) disk, 2GB Ram, 2GB Swap, 64MB Video Mem, 2 vCPU.
5. # pkg upgrade and then pkg install xorg virtualbox-ose-additions
6. Modify RC.CONF: vboxguest_enable="YES" \ vboxservice_enable="YES" \
7. reboot, login, startx = works!
8. Modifiy repo into latest as described here:
9. # pkg upgrade: it will update among the others xorg and
10: reboot; loging; startx: black screen.

For any additional request please  do not hesitate to ask!
