#762: Problem and possible resolution for intel kms modules resulting in black
screen
-------------------------------+-------------------------

     Type:  System Defect      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  major              |  Milestone:
Component:  XOrg Configurator  |    Version:  9.2-RELEASE
 Keywords:                     |
-------------------------------+-------------------------
 I've tested the both the 9.2 release and 9 stable release on an intel mac
 mini as well as an asus n53sn laptop.  The intel mac mini has an intel
 hd3000.  The asus has an nvidia optimus.  For both I've had to unload the
 intel kms modules during the first boot as well as permanently in
 loader.conf.  After setting both the i915kms and drm2 modules to no and
 regenerating grub I was able to complete the display wizard.  I have
 confirmed that 3d works with my intel mac mini.  The asus n35sn video
 works in vesa mode after unloading these modules.  According to the
 following page these modules should be loaded by Xorg automatically.
