Installing a more recent version of xorg-server?

Hello list

I just installed FreeBSD 8.2 in this new laptop I got and I must
say it's working good enough so far : )

The only thing preventing from actually starting using it is that
my video card doesn't work with the version of xorg-server in the
port's tree, I tried with i720, i810 and Intel drivers and nothing.

(--) PCI: (0:0:2:0) 8086:0126:1028:0491 Intel Corporation 2nd
Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller rev 9
(II) LoadModule: "intel"
(EE) No devices detected.

This configuration with the VESA driver works BUT...
(yes, I have an optimus card :(

(WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers 'kbd', 'mouse' or
'vmmouse' will be disabled.
(WW) Disabling Mouse0
(WW) Disabling Keyboard0

So I can't log in, and I don't want to work with a screen resolution
of 800x600 either (Modes "1600x900" gets ignored)

I manually modified the make file to get xserver 10.2, but (as
expected) there are some cascade dependencies that I don't want
to hunt down by hand... so I was wondering if you had an unofficial
ports tree or something with a more recent version of xorg-server.


How do you create an operating system on Linux Ubuntu 9.10?
Y luego que por qué no me gusta usar Ubuntu...
