    I have an HP Envy 3D laptop with FreeBSD 8.2-Release and Xort 7.5 from the AMD64 DVD.

    I cannot start X - I get a core dump.

    Any ideas?

    My googling seems to suggest that this is a laptop with switchable graphics. If it has an integrated intel GPU and a radeon GPU (as I suspect), you may be forced to use the vesa driver until the intel driver is capable of driving it. If it has an integrated intel GPU and an nvidia GPU, you may be able to get away with the nvidia driver, but only if you can disable the intel GPU.

    Solved.

    The trick is to use the vesa driver.

    I generated a config with Xorg --configure.

    Then, edited xorg.conf.new to change the driver to vesa. Use BusID for the Radeon chip.

    How did you do that exactly? I am facing similar issues with my Lenovo Y570 model.
