Good day -
I just installed DragonFlyBSD 6.0 on an Intel Core-7 x86_64,
under Linux Qemu/KVM at first, into a real disk partition
(I can later boot it on real hardware).
I am able to boot into DragonFly from the installed disk
under the virt-manager GUI.
After doing 'pkg update', and 'pkg install' of:
xorg xorg-drivers xorg-server xdm xterm emacs mesa-libs \
mesa-gallium-vdpau mesa-gallium-xa enlightenment
, which installed many dependencies, and rebooting and doing
# Xorg -configure > /etc/X11/xorg.conf
, 'Xorg :0' still fails with:
(EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory
- the /dev/dri directory still does not exist.
I turned 'on' the line in /etc/ttys that runs xdm, but
using <ALT>+<CTRL>+<F9> key does NOT switch to a graphical
XDM screen on ttyv8 , and no graphical login is presented during boot.
Qemu/KVM gives me options to create QXL or Virtio or VGA
virtual video card. QXL and Virtio do not seem to work -
should they ?
I tried 'kldload i915 drm', and still no /dev/dri directory
Please could anyone suggest what to try to get video working
when running DragonFly under Linux Qemu/KVM .
The video card reports as:
00:02:0 VGA Compatible Controller: Red Hat, Inc. Virtio GPU (Rev 01)
(the Virtio option). I did try the QXL option as well.
and there is in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
, so it looks like Xorg found the right card.
Any ideas how to get DLFY video working under Linux Qemu/KVM ?
Thanks & Best Regards,
