2014 Acer V3-112P-C9AX
Intel BayTrail Celeron (Atom 4core) N2940

liveCD sets resolution correctly, but still on "scfb" driver

freeBSD 12.0 stable & hardenedBSD 12.0 stable do just fine with the drm-kmod pkg.

Code: Select all

pciconf -lv | grep -B 4 VGA
vgapci0@pci0:0:2:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x09331025 chip=0x0f318086 rev=0x0e hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

Code: Select all

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver
        Driver     "scfb"

again, liveCD can't get resolution right

Code: Select all

pciconf -lv | grep -B 4 VGA
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

Code: Select all

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver
        Driver     "scfb"

LENOVO G50-45 , CPU AMD A6-6310 APU with AMD Radeon R4 Graphics , system memory 4096 MB
Is it possible to disable the integrated graphics controller ( Mullins Radeon R4/R5 ) & use only the discrete controller ( Sun LE [Radeon HD 8550M / R5 M230] ) ?

I can't give this output for one of my systems, since there doesn't seem to be a pkg for the required driver. I had to swap hard drives with another system in order to do the OS installation, & X11 won't even run. However, I can tell you specifically about the gpus that it's running & which driver it needs. It's running 2 GeForce GTX 760 in SLI. They require nvidia driver series 410.XX, however version 415.13 is currently in beta. I'm trying my best to install the driver from nvidia's site, but it's kind of tricky because it's crying about specifically needing the kernel sources -which I've just now realized that I can only get from the TrueOS github site. So, that's currently being cloned. Hopefully, I'll be able to run make install on the driver without running into another kernel<->driver version mismatch issue.

Looks like I was mistaken on the available nvidia driver versions.

Release - 415.27
Beta - 418.30
