$ which xauth

Radeon HD 7570M, HP EliteBook 8570p.

Following the switch to STABLE I could no longer use a desktop environment. For 

service sddm onestart

– results in endless repetition of two lines, comparable to those shown at 
<https://forum.voidlinux.org/t/solved-sddm-crashes/4471> and 
 except FreeBSD has the different path to xauth so IIRC what's seen is:

/usr/local/bin/xauth: (stdin):1:  bad "remove" command line
/usr/local/bin/xauth: (stdin):2:  bad "add" command line
/usr/local/bin/xauth: (stdin):1:  bad "remove" command line
/usr/local/bin/xauth: (stdin):2:  bad "add" command line

kldunload radeonkms

– results in a kernel panic.

So I edited my rc.conf,

$ less /etc/rc.conf
# kld_list="/boot/modules/radeonkms.ko"
# sddm_enable="YES"

– changed the startup routine to include CSM (not UEFI alone) and created a 
driver-vesa.conf as shown at 

Now I can at least use VESA.
