i915kmsdrives the integral display without difficulty.
What's the simplest way for me to drive a display on DisplayPort?
Eventually I'd like to try hybrid graphics but for now, all I want is to drive a second display. (I'll rarely use this computer without a dock.)
I experimented, unsuccessfully, with some NVIDIA-related ports. I could load kernel modules etc. but there was no sign of the display being driven. The FreeBSD Handbook didn't help me to tell which software might be applicable.
Drivers are available from NVIDIA but for now, I'm ignoring them. (FreeBSD 14.0-CURRENT here.)
