mate, I need to buy you a beer. that fixed it for me on two systems. of course i have pretty much stuffed my X setup by fiddling, trying to fix the problem myself, but at least now the GUI is back.
I'm not sure I deserve the beer, considering I probably broke stuff to begin with. :)
I've had several good reports with the patch, I'll push it to the ports tree as soon as possible, I just need to clear some other things off the TODO list first. It will then take some time (usually a couple of days) before it shows up as pre-built packages.
 
  • Thanks

The way this bug went from this Forum to Bugzilla, got reviewed, patched and tested by some end users and gets up into the tree -- for me it is just a Great Example of how things are managed over here to improve FreeBSD.

TNX to all that contributed!

I have just committed the libpciaccess fix I posted here earlier. It will take some time before it shows up as pre-built packages.

The bug tracker issue precedes your first post in this thread by five days.

Don't get overly excited.

Now I'm afraid to say anything, lest I get banned. (Nah, not really. macOS and Windows are my main machines, so fire away!)

For better or for worse, saying stupid things is not enough of a reason for a ban. Obscuring the relevant information by sheer number and volume of contradicting posts as well as advertising random binaries of unknown origin in place of an existing workaround on other hand…
