Solved Intel 4500MHD on ThinkPad T400, X not working

Hello FreeBSD community!

I installed FreeBSD-11 on ThinkPad T400 and now I'm trying to get Xorg to work.

This laptop has two graphic cards - integrated 4500MHD and discrete Radion HD 3470. The discrete card is working just fine (with radeon driver) if I select it in the BIOS as the only graphics.

Buf If I select the integrated Intel card and use the intel driver, Xorg is failing to start.

This is my /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/driver-intel.conf file:

    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver "intel"

This appears in dmesg after the first attempt to start X:
Code:

My loader.conf:
Code:
aesni_load="YES"
geom_eli_load="YES"
kern.geom.label.disk_ident.enable="0"
kern.geom.label.gptid.enable="0"
zfs_load="YES"
acpi_ibm_load="YES"
cpufreq_load="YES"
i915_load="YES"
kern.vty=vt
Any ideas? What might be wrong?

Btw, I've installed Xorg from pkg. I've read about all this WITH_NEW_XORG and WITH_KMS thing, but, as I understood, WITH_NEW_XORG is already a default in FreeBSD-11, and I don't need to rebuild it manually from ports, am I right about this?

I believe in your /boot/loader.conf you have to use
Code:
i915kms_load="YES"
and you don't need
Code:
i915_load="YES"
kern.vty=vt
(vt is the default in FreeBSD-11).
