            Have you tried with the xf86-intel in ports. That actually works better for most. Also try SNA. What does pciconf -lvbc show for graphics?---- On Mon, 23 May 2016 14:17:41 -0700  Matthias Haas<freebsd-x11 at> wrote ----First of all thanks for your great work so far.  I have tried the driver on my notebook with Iris 550. After patching libdrm with  and installing the experimental xf86-video-intel driver it is partially  working. What's not working is: - 3D-acceleration - multi-monitor support (only tried with hdmi), after loading the  i915kms driver the output is duplicated, but there is no way of  controlling the outputs independently (xfce also shows only one  connected display) - Xorg refuses to start unless I kldload i915kms manually before trying  to start Xorg - there are some rendering issues (pink lines, weird transparency where  there should be no transparency), but I don't know if these are related  to i915, the experimental xf86-video-intel driver or the software  renderer  On 2016-05-23 10:12, Matthew Macy wrote: > The highlights for today are the following: >  > Bug fixes: > - Will Andrews fixed attach for some laptops (such as the Carbon X1). >   The Carbon X1 has a quirky BIOS that doesn't allow the OS to >   enumerate the GPU's interrupt. > - Will Andrews identified a conditionally uninitialized return in >   idr_find that could lead to a panic in some cases. > - Fixed a panic in mtrr_del frequently seen when attach failed. > - Sleep/wakeups with interrupts are largely implemented correctly >   now.
