Black screen after installing U5, old Intel graphic


#84

This is a fresh install, I skipped the beadm part and only installed drm legacy through app cafe, so I only have 2 beadm, my initial install, and my latest updated one.

The xorg file now has the default vesa setup in it, so I blanked the file and restarted, but the problem is still here.


#85

roll back to initial. if that works, copy the /etc/X11/xorg.conf someplace safe so you can copy it back


#86

Is there any dmesg info you might want before I do anything else?
By the way, the mouse did show up, but the booting never went to the desktop.


#87

what prompt are you seeing?


#88

regular freebsd login when I don’t get any desktop loaded properly.

[my user name @ machine ] ~ #

Hope I understood your question right. You were asking how I was logged in, right?


#89

rollback to initial to make sure that still works


#90

Yes, initial still works. What’s the next step?

I still don’t quite understand beadm. Is beadm kind of like a system restore point tool?

Because any changes I attempted on the latest one got reverted when switch back to initial


#91

Did you do a full update or regular update


#92

Full update


#93

are able/willing to use telegram?

I’m at a loss


#94

Hope its not a bad thing to keep bumping this thread. When the updater asked me if I wanted to do a full update, I clicked yes.

After the update is done and before I restarted, the screen saver came up but couldn’t initiate 3D drawings, the error message was along the line of something gl (libgl?) tried to access drm, libgl access denied


#95

you’d need to see what was in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf on the previous BE and compare


#96

Also, xorg.conf actually did not change. both xorg.conf were using vesa driver and same display and etc. But this worked in my “initial” BE


#97

Try running this command from your initial boot environment.

sudo sysup -check -update -bename RELEASE-U7

The following packages will be removed:

#99

It should have asked you to reboot at the end.


#100

it probably did


#101

it didn’t asked me to reboot. I will reboot now.


#102

reboot anyway and lets see what happens.


#103

looks ok so far, but the command you gave me didn’t download anything, it just checks stuff. It didn’t ask me if I want to install, after it says “the following packages will be removed --------”, it returns terminal control back to me.
