    Xfce Does Xfce requires less or simpler hardware drivers (compared to KDE)?

    I'm using KDE with the drm-kmod graphics driver and just experienced a hang issue. I'm just wondering if I switch over to Xfce, would it work without this drm-kmod driver?

    Solved Upgrading my MacPro 5,1 to FreeBSD 12.1 - video kernel driver

    As a reaction to Apple's choosing not to support 'ancient' hardware, and in line with my slow migration to bsdland, I'm upgrading my mid-2010 MacPro (with its 12-2.93GHz cores and a measly 32GB ram) to FreeBSD 12.1.
