problems after update

Last night I upgraded my FreeBSD 10.3 with pkg update and followed with pkg upgrade

SLiM is failing to load after a reboot.

Here is the slim.log

Code:
slim: waiting for X server to begin accepting connections.
slim: Last login: Mon Feb  6 16:05:41 on unix:0.0


slim: waiting for X server to begin accepting connections.
slim: unexpected signal 15
slim: connection to X server lost.

slim: waiting for X server to shut down.


slim: waiting for X server to begin accepting connections.
slim: unexpected signal 15

slim: waiting for X server to shut down



any help is greatly appreciated

Your VMWare driver looks to be MIA. Is this a VMWare guest? Did you reinstall the VMWare guest drivers?
 
Your VMWare driver looks to be MIA. Is this a VMWare guest? Did you reinstall the VMWare guest drivers?

Yes, it's a VMWare guest on a 6.0 U2 esxi server. Server had NIC, BIOS, iLO firmware updated prior to FreeBSD upgrade. I will try to reinstall open-vmware tools.

Thank you
 
tools were showing installed & up to date. I reinstalled them anyway and confirmed the entries in the rc.conf

Description    :
The Open Virtual Machine Tools (open-vm-tools) are the open source
implementation of VMware Tools. They are a set of guest operating
system virtualization components that enhance performance and user
experience of virtual machines. As virtualization technology rapidly
becomes mainstream, each virtualization solution provider implements
their own set of tools and utilities to supplement the guest virtual
machine. However, most of the implementations are proprietary and
are tied to a specific virtualization platform.

This port replaces the vmware guest ports and the binary only vmware
tools ports in the ports tree.



any other logs files I could look at?
 
I ran into this problem and answered it here: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/59727/page-2#post-344676 Even though it's not a vmware guest, the principle still applies. On my vmware guests, I have

Code:
kern.vty="sc"
vesa_load="YES"

in the /boot/loader.conf and a basic xorg.conf file and slim runs just fine.

The alternative, as I mentioned, is to use kern.vty="vt" and tweak the xorg.conf for screen and display.
 
It's the Xorg server update itself - 1.18.4 It doesn't really break itself, they just changed the way it detects the display adapter. See the /usr/ports/UPDATING file for the notes around 20170211 or just follow this link: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/UPDATING?revision=434496&view=markup#l66

You should be able to fix your guest to work with the current version - I have FreeBSD vm's running the latest 11 version and ports tree on ESXi 5.5 with SLIM, Mate, xfce4, KDE and CDE with no problems at all.
 
I ended up going back to an older version of the VM Backup with has a prior version of Xorg server. (7.7_2 ?)

I would like to get the Xorg server updated, so here is my second attempt.

Looking at my second log file "Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices"
and the changes in from 20170211 "scfb, the generic framebuffer driver"

Am I correct to assume that the generic driver does not work with the visualized video card? What driver should I be using?

vgapci0: <VGA-compatible display> port 0x1070-0x107f mem 0xe8000000-0xefffffff,0xfe000000-0xfe7fffff irq 16 at device 15.0 on pci0



Thanks
 
Remove xorg.conf, you don't really need it anymore. Then create a /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/driver-vmware.conf and paste that Device section in there. That should make things work.

I created driver-vmware.conf under etc/X11/xorg.conf.d as I am doing this as a root user, and inserted the configuration from my message above. slim() failed to load after a reboot and I am now back at the command prompt.
