-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 I ran into some trouble booting off a Fujitsu Lifebook E751 (firmware is latest, r1.22 from 2013). The E751 is of model series S26391-K326-V100 and equipted with a Core i5-2520M CPU and supposed to be also equipted with a iGPU HM65 according to the techniscal specifications from Fujitsu.
Trying to boot off 12-PRERELEASE/12-RC2 and/or 13-CURRENT (most recent I could grap from the download page), the screen becomes distorted immediately after the kernel has loaded and initialised/booted. The screen is at the loader's all right so far. Trying to disable graphics mode via escaping to the loader's prompt and setting set hw.vga.textmode=1 subsequently loading the kernel and then booting, doesn't help. The screen is distorted again. The notebook seems UEFI only and doesn't boot off from MBR partioned devices (i.e. NanoBSD I used to use). Loading /boot/kernel/i915kms.ko after manually having loaded /boot/kernel/kernel (and not booted yet) doesn't change anything either. Booting off and installing Linux (Ubuntu, Mint so far, most revent verions I can get my hands on) is no problem. The console works fine from the beginning and so the graphics. Is there a chance to get a FreeBSD booting the easy way? The provided boot images do not contain any of the graphics/drm-stable|next|legacy-kmod stuff, I tried to load i915kms.ko off from /boot/modules/ (were those modules from the ports are supposed to reside) but no chance. Before starting investigating this issue further I'd like to ask wether there is a general support provided or is that type of notebook dead matter for FreeBSD of the modern kind? Thanks in advance, oh p.s. please CC me, I'm not subscribing all lists. - -- O.
