Hi all,

This is a call for testing for newer Xorg along with newer drivers: intel and

The patch against the head ports:

Note that you would need to rebuild all the xf86-* packages to work with that
newer xorg (hence the bump of the revision)

Do not expect newer gpu supported as this is not the kernel part.

If you experience any issue with intel or radeon driver please try to use the
new modesetting driver provided by xorg directly (note that fedora and debian
recommands to use that new driver instead of the ati/intel one)

To use that driver:

cat /usr/local/etc/xorg.conf.d/modesetting.conf
Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver "modesetting"

You need to first load the kms driver eiter via loader.conf or manually via
