Re: Intel Atom N570 DRM blank screen

My guess is that it's an older intel driver that happens to be getting
installed.  The most recent version of the intel driver, 2.8, is
Linux-only, so I'm not sure how much luck you will have with any BSD.


You can try rebuilding x.org and its dependencies - this will take a
while, and I'm not 100% sure that will help.  pkg_rolling-release can
do that for you, with a force option.
