Solved [Solved] WITH_NEW_XORG Issues

Hello:

I seem to be having a problem with xorg-server versioning. I am running uname -a:
Code:
FreeBSD stoa.freebsd.net 10.0-RELEASE-p7 FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE-p7 #0: Tue Jul  8 06:37:44 UTC 2014     root@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64
I'm fairly sure I have read that, as of 10.0-RELEASE, WITH_NEW_XORG is the default (although I cannot presently find that specific reference, here is another one[1].)

However, pkg version -l "<" shows:
Code:
dri-7.6.1_5,2                      <
libGL-7.6.1_5                      <
libdrm-2.4.17_2,1                  <
xf86-video-ati-6.14.6_4            <
xf86-video-intel-2.7.1_9           <
xorg-server-1.7.7_14,1             <
Which I believe is all related to the older versions of xorg-server. It does not seem my system is running with WITH_NEW_XORG. I have read the /usr/ports/UPDATING file of April 2014, but that seems to assume WITH_NEW_XORG is the default and is operative. Maybe I'm just confused about the whole process, but I would like to bring xorg up to date. Can anyone advise how to do this on a 10.0-RELEASE system?

Thanks for your help.

It's default on 10-STABLE, not on 10.0-RELEASE.

It's slightly dated but you can follow the procedure from "Installing KMS ports": https://wiki.freebsd.org/Graphics#Ports

Re: WITH_NEW_XORG Issues

Well, that will hopefully teach me to read a little more precisely. Thank you both for your prompt responses.
