RE: NetBSD-9.99.x No Video

If I understand correctly, it "should" work if I upgrade to current and not
just run the current kernel? Is there a way to there a way to roll back an
installation if things go wrong?

In general, for -HEAD, you have to get the gpufw.tar.xz and modules.tar.xz
sets as well. Your problem may go away, or it may not, if you provide the
firmware blobs: the new DRM driver doesn't work on older Intel integrated
GPU cards (SandyBridge/IvyBridge gen.) if you boot the system in UEFI mode.
