There is no "device" line supposedly indicating the chipset is not
recognized (no driver yet ?).
I want to leverage DRI/DRM for hardware video transcoding using Intel
QuicSync so I tried to install the latest drm-kmod port but it didn't work
as it seems I need to have something under /dev/dri which is empty for me :
$ ls -la /dev/dri
ls: /dev/dri: No such file or directory
I found a patch for Linux that adds the Comet Lake chipsets in
i915_pciids.h that I adapted/applied for the drm-kmod port but that
didn't help either and that's probably a very naive approach.
I'm not sure what to do at this stage so any help is greatly appreciated.
Could it be that I just need to wait for these chipsets to be properly
supported in FreeBSD 12.1 ?
It seems like the drm-kmod port is based on a backport from Linux 4.16
kernel but I could be wrong. If I'm not wrong then do we need to have a
drm-kmod port based on Linux 5 kernel that might support newer chipsets ?
