You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
If you really wish to overwrite the old port of x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel
without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
in your environment or the "make install" command line.

Stop in /usr/ports/x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel.

You might try to upgrade it, the simplist way would probably be:

pkg_add -r portupgrade
rehash
portupgrade -rR xf86-video-intel

< go on coffee break >


Also, while BSD can run Linux *programs* through the Linux ABI it can not run Linux *drivers* because the drivers require a Linux Kernel and are not compatible with the FreeBSD Kernel.

So you need the FreeBSD driver ;-)

Fill ALT_PKGDEP section in pkgtools.conf file for portupgrade
be aware of alternative dependencies you use.
E.g.
ALT_PKGDEP = {
'www/apache13' => 'www/apache13-modssl',
'print/ghostscript-gnu' => 'print/ghostscript-gpl',
}

Note also, portupgrade knows nothing how to handle ports with different
suffixes (E.g. -nox11). So you should explicitly define variables
(E.g. WITHOUT_X11=yes) for the ports in /etc/make.conf or pkgtools.conf
(MAKE_ARGS section) files.

looks to me like the ports index file thing (/usr/ports/INDEX* on my box) is out of date,


change directory into /usr/ports and fetch a new version as root; do a

cd /usr/ports
make fetchindex

note that it is one word, fetchindex - if you write 'fetch index' it will try to fetch *a lot* of crap... As my testing-typo's just found out lol.

If your ports tree is not fairly up to date with your local ports three, in my case the index is probably 2 weeks newer you might want to update your ports tree or build an index on your system (can take awhile) with running 'make index' rather then 'make fetchindex'

I don't think fetching an index rather then building won will do any harm if your ports tree is reasonably in sync with it, but I don't promise any thing.


Once the new index is ready, try doing the portupgrade process again, if it can't find x11/pixman, let us see the konsole output again.

TerryP.

In case somebody stumbles across this thread like I did with the same problem, installing the latest intel driver out of the ports as above plus editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf to add the resolutions I want plus delete some line about 'Option "NoDDC" "yes"' did the trick. I think the most important bit was deleting the "NoDDC" thing.
