Read the instructions provided on screen - it tells you to update port
tree or disable vulnerability check and you even have command showed
how to do that :-)
It seems you did not update the ports tree as instructed so the Intel
driver will not work and cannot be built. Did you type all commands as
instructed in given order?
If "portsnap fetch update" did not update your port tree try "portsnap
fetch extract" that would fetch and extract the latest port tree.
Then go to drm port (the latest is 4.16.g20191120) and do:
You may have Intel and nVidia graphics on your machine. First make
Intel working. Then you will easily make nVidia working (replace drm
and 915kms modules with nvidia.ko).
If you still have problems with both Intel and nVidia drivers get the
default framebuffer video driver that is slow but works:
pkg install xf86-video-scfb
If that does not work for you then you are making something wrong with
all good sufficiently enough information provided from the list, now
its your time to do the homework and _understand_ how things work and
where _you_ are making the mistake :-)
Have fun :-)
