Ok, thanks for the clarification. I ran `pkg which
/boot/modules/i915kms.ko' and the result is:
/boot/modules/i915kms.ko was not found in the database
This confirms that for some reason drm-kmod does not install
i915kms.ko. As written in the description of the package, ``the most
recent supported stable DRM for a give[n] FreeBSD version will be
installed''. So, maybe there is no DRM available for this laptop?
For older systems, there was a package `drm-legacy-kmod', but it
has been moved to `drm-kmod' itself on 2020-12-31, as stated in
https://www.freshports.org/graphics/drm-kmod (`Port Moves').
> Also please note:
If i915kms.ko is not present in my system, I think `kld_list="i915kms"'
in /etc/rc.conf has no effect.
