FreeBSD 9.1 + HD4000 : /dev/dri & tty problem

Hello all :)

I have a mobile with a nVidia graphic card and a modern Intel one (core i7). I cannot disable one in the BIOS. I read a lot on the FreeBSD forum about 'How to' configure the new xOrg with Intel card. I start a fresh FreeBSD 9.1 install, then update the ports tree, then update the kernel. (Please, report to the end of the post to see my detailed install for xOrg/gnome). Some people say that everything is OK for them. I can login into Gnome and use it but I still get two problems.

First problem
I cannot switch to tty when using Ctrl+Alt+Fx keys. This is a big problem.

Second problem
Code:
Failed to change owner or group for file /dev/dri/card0! 2: No such file or directory
If I look to the filesystem, I have /dev/dri/card1 but not /dev/dri/card0.
Card0 is the intel card (associated with the good BusID in xorg.conf, see attached files).
Code:
# pciconf -lv | grep -B 4 VGA
vgapci1@pci0:0:2:0:	class=0x030000 card=0x905a104d chip=0x00468086 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA
--
vgapci0@pci0:1:0:0:	class=0x030000 card=0x905a104d chip=0x0a2b10de rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'nVidia Corporation'
    device     = 'GT216 [GeForce GT 330M]'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA


Here what I've done for xOrg installation (this order) :

Code:
# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install
/etc/make.conf
Code:
WITH_NEW_XORG="YES"
WITH_KMS="YES"
Then :
Code:
# cd /usr/ports/x11/gnome2
# make config-recursive
# make install
# cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg
# make config-recursive
# make install

# portinstall -P x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel
Then add in /boot/loader.conf
Code:
i915_load="YES"
Then generate /etc/X11/xorg.conf and modify it :
Code:
# Xorg -configure
Code:
[...]
Section "Device"
        Driver "intel"
[...]
Section "ServerFlags"
        Option          "DRI2"          "True"
        Option          "AIGLX"         "True"
EndSection
[...]
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Installing the xorg port built the drivers. At best, that last step does nothing. At worst, it downloads and installs a precompiled xf86-video-intel binary package that does not have KMS support.

Then add in /boot/loader.conf
Code:
i915_load="YES"
That is not needed any more.

When including files, please put short ones like xorg.conf inline, and put longer ones like /var/log/Xorg.0.log on a web site like pastebin.com and post a link. That information becomes available immediately, rather than having to download, extract, read, and then respond.

Thanks @wblock@. Ok for Pastebin next time.

About the not needed anymore steps, I try first without. Problems are the same.

@G_Nerc said to me to add this in xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "DRI"
        Group 0
        Mode 0666
EndSection
No change. Same problems :(

Well, I still have errors after adding 'quite the same' xorg.conf as you.
My system is a 9.1 version.

In /dev/dri directory you have Card0 and Card1?

Code:

Can you paste which error you have?

Maybe you have the same in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log, because you don't have /dev/dri/card0 :

From /var/log/Xorg.0.log (extract) :
Code:

Can you paste more lines from log file? And also can you give output of # kldstat?

You can get the complete log in the first post.

So you have the same problem as I. Can you use the Ctrl+Alt+Fx keys to switch to a console?

Finally errors in Xorg.0.log are probably nothing because in the log file we can also see:
Code:
[    20.319] Failed to change owner or group for file /dev/dri/card0! 2: No such file or directory
[    20.319] drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such file or directory)
[    20.319] drmOpenDevice: Open failed
[    20.319] drmOpenByBusid: drmOpenMinor returns -2
[    20.319] [B]drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card1[/B]
[    20.323] [B]drmOpenDevice: open result is 8, (OK)[/B]
My real problem is that I cannot switch to console by using Ctrl+Alt+Fx keys. When I try to do it this error occurs in /Xorg.0.log:
Code:
[  2185.859] (II) AIGLX: Suspending AIGLX clients for VT switch
[  2185.859] (WW) intel(0): drmDropMaster failed: Unknown error: -22

Expectation bug: the Intel KMS code does not support switching back to a text console. Or rather, it allows it, but the graphics mode is not switched back to text, so the console is not visible.

Thanks for the info @wblock@.
It's bad :( (Also we cannot see shutting down the log process).

And without disabling Intel Video Card in the BIOS it is not possible to use the nVidia card?

Maybe it will work, but unlikely. In xorg.conf, there would only be an nvidia Device entry, no intel.

@@DutchDaemon : I'm sorry, i did not see your edit cause it was quick post/reply.
My repeated error was not a so bad error but it was.


About the thread, I mark it as [SOLVED] cause there is no solution for the moment -2013/03/18- (for switching to tty with an Intel graphic card like on Irondale).

If I try to use the nVidia card onboard I know that I have a problem of 'no screens found', and specify EDID file in xorg.conf does nothing for me.

Maybe someone have information about sysutils/acpi_call port? And then, how we can disable INTEL GPU?

Many thanks @vermaden. I will retry the nVidia install (without disabling the Intel GPU in the BIOS because I can't).

I'm not a specialist of FreeBSD kernel and hardware configuration. I think one of my last chances could be:
  • Rebuild the 9.1 kernel without detecting the Intel GPU - not possible I think -
  • Use apci_call to prevent loading of the Intel GPU - don't know how -
  • force Xorg to load my EDID file with the nVidia Card - next try -

Rebuild the x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel:
# make -C /usr/ports/x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel clean deinstall install clean
I have optimus nvidia GT540 M and installed CentOS 7 it use i915kms driver without problem.

I searched for almost two weeks to find how to make X11 work in FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE. Finally after two weeks, this method works for me. :)
