This prevents the xorg.conf which uses the intel driver from starting. 
If I change the xorg.conf file to use the vesa driver I still get the 
message but X starts.

Is this a problem with the package and how do I get the module?


pkg_radd modular-xorg-drivers?

As well as:



IF the modular-xorg-server has not pulled them as depends.

ls /var/db/pkg/xf86-video-* will list 'em.

OTOH - not all vid cards have finished drivers.

I'm in VESA mode on one box with 1680x1050 screen until a newer 
VIA/S3-Unichrome is tuned-up.

OTOH, VESA is damn decent these days...
