Xfce xfce : out of range on monitor

Hello to all

I tried to install display manager "xfce"

I installed it according to the tutorial below

In short, I did this:
Code:
$freebsd-update fetch
$freebsd-update install
$pkg install -y xorg
$pkg install slim
$pkg install xfce

I edited the file /etc/rc.conf and added the following text

Code:
moused_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES"
slim_enable="YES"
zfs_enable="YES"

I edited the file .xinitrc and added the following text

Code:
exec xfce4-session



But when I restarted the system with an error
I encountered "out of range monitor"

Is there a problem with my graphics driver?

Interestingly, I booted the system with "runlevel 2" and changed it to "runlevel6". The system works well.

But when the system turns on and off
Or restarts, the message "out to range on monitor" is encountered

What should I do friends?

Hello,

Is there a problem with my graphics driver?

Do you have installed graphics driver [DRM] drivers at all?

You can readup for Nvidia here and for AMD/Intel here.

I encountered "out of range monitor"

That means that the systems try's to use a resolution and/or refresh rate that is not supported by your monitor.

BTW, you can remove hald from /etc/rc.conf its deprecated have been removed long ago.
 
I found the solution

I used the following link and typed "pkg install drm-kmod" according to the instructions
Then sysrc -f /etc/rc.conf kld_list += i915kms
And then I made sure my user was a member of the "video" group
