I cannot get the Intel graphics driver to load on my laptop. I have
"drm-kmod", and "xf86-video-intel" installed. I have 'kldlist="i915kms"' in
/etc/rc.conf. I am a member of the video group. I am on 12.1-STABLE. If I
try to boot normally the text is all garbled and unreadable. if I use "gop
set 4" in the bootloader, the screen properly loads at a lower resolution.
This computer uses UEFI, I am unable to turn it off. The system loads at
the proper resolution on 13.0-CURRENT. The i915kms is loaded into the
kernel. dmesg lists the graphics card as <VGA-compatible display>. This is
an NVIDIA Optimus laptop, but I don't think that makes a difference because
the intel card has control over the display.
