I tried and unfortunately nothing changes: still no file with i915kms*
However, I installed manually drm-fbsd13-kmod and now the i915kms.ko
file is present in /boot/modules. After modifying /etc/rc.conf with
`kld_list="i915kms"', it works. It takes a while to load the module at
boot, but eventually it succeeds. I wonder why drm-kmod didn't do this
by its own.
Warning: to be able to run X server, it is also necessary to install
xf86-video-intel. I had the same issue as in this thread:

Sorry, I can't understand what you would like to mention.
Thanks a lot for your help!
