Random xorg notes

What's required for a working and useful desktop? (On at least an Intel chipset machine):

.. as well as running vt + i915kms with drm2.

It pulls in dependencies that are needed to be useful.

Then, need to enable hal/dbus in rc.conf.

Then for /etc/sysctl.conf:

hw.acpi.lid_switch_state=S3 kern.ipc.shm_allow_removed=1

Then, need to set the frequency to the highest for now - let C states take charge. Otherwise on boot some hardware / BIOS will set the frequency to something low and it won't be stepped up.

(.. it'd be nice to make powerd .. better.)
