Always I may help with pleasure , but I do not know how . I think the problem is not related to hardware because i386 KDE4 is working very well . On the same computer , there are four hard disks , and each disk has a different operating system , mostly 64 bit ones . All of them using KDE4 and working very well . If you consider useful , my ideas are following : During start-up of KDE4 , screen is painted with its wall paper only . Since X is already running , it is possible to open a window and display messages on it with possible saving to a text file . This file may be transmitted to experts for possible studies . At present , monitors are cheap . I want to install multiple monitors on the same computer to watch serial console output on a regular ( VGA ) monitor ( because in market , there is NO any serial console on sale in computer shops ( I am in Turkey )) . Really , I do not know how to implement a regular ( VGA ) computer instead of a serial console . A very good application in FreeBSD may be to allow such a multiple monitor definition during install and use them for virtual terminals simultaneously . Using a second computer for serial console is not very practical due to software and hardware problems . If you know my actual problem , you may understand me better . I am writing a multimedia information management system as continuation of my PhD thesis feasibility demonstration program . Due to health problems it is progressing very slowly . My primary aim is to base it on a free , permissive , open source operating system . My program , with a freely usable version , will be closed source ( for sale , if I can do ) . I need a permissive ( BSD like licensed ) operating system , because a data base without operating system support can not be secure in itself . Unfortunately , I am using Pascal only , Fortran for scientific programming and very rarely C , ( with a knowledge of other many programming languages ) . I want to start on working internal structure of an operating system . Linux is NOT usable due to GPL . Minix ( does not have a capable Pascal ) , Haiku , are not sufficiently mature . NetBSD , OpenBSD , DragonFlyBSD are not better than FreeBSD . OpenSolaris died , OpenIndiana is using copyright dependent parts . The most viable selection is FreeBSD for 64 bits ... In such an environment , usability of multiple terminals ( monitors ) simultaneously as distinct display areas with output direction possibility via parameter files would be very useful . Assume values are written into distinct files , where files are monitors . Not only for my own benefits , also for contribution to humanity ( My main hobby was to write mathematical analysis programs to support researches , with very hard work : Conclusion : My wife had divorced me with a complaint that I am studying very much , occupying home with computers , etc. ) , I always wish to make contributions to FreeBSD because of its very good license ( even commercial companies may use it freely which is a very good decision for me ) and its high quality . To test the KDE4 in FreeBSD 9.0 amd64 RC1 , you can do the following : Install X . Install KDE4 . Login to console . Without an .xinitrc file , and unmodified /etc/ttys file , execute startx . ( Do not start KDE4 directly . ) In right xterm window of X , execute /usr/local/kde4/bin/startkde ( /usr/local/kde4/bin is not in path definition ) . In that terminal , you will see a lot of messages . After display of messages , a form will appear to display KDE4 . Then , I do not know , but , even this will supply much information about what is going problematic . Correction of first displayed errors and continuing in that way , will solve the problems one by one . If KDE4 is starting directly , during waiting after display of hard disk symbol , discontinuation of X with Ctrl-Alt-F1 will reveal some messages , but last ones . Therefore , the above method is better than that second method . If xterm buffer keeps all of the messages , no one of them will be lost . Thank you very much .
