What GPU you use ? I had issues with my Asus Zenbook laptop and FBSD 10. I upgraded to 11 current using VT image. Works fine. Im using as well xfce4.

Probable you could try to use the new VT console driver.

I am running xorg-7.7 on 10.0-STABLE amd64.
As far as I remember one could change with [ctrl] + [alt] + [Fn] from
some window manager (mine is xfce4) to console.
This doesn't work anymore. Instead my xfce4 will freeze, i.e. mouse and
keyboard will stop working.

Does anyone know what is going on there?

Thanks and regards
