I am fairly new to FreeBSD, and I have been having problems with my IBM Aptiva 2196-24A in getting the on-board video card configured with freeBSD. So i can run X window system at a decent resolution. All i can get to work is Standard VGA driver at 640x800 at 8bit. I have had this card working properly (win2k, ubuntu) so it is fully operational. The on-board chipset is SiS 540, and due to freeBSD not supporting this with options in the config menu, how can i go about setting it up to work?

In no particular order, what about:

  1.  Tell us more about what you've tried.

  2.  Post your configuration file.

  3.  Read the documentation at the Xorg site, or the manpage(s).

  4.  Peruse /var/log/Xorg.*log files for clues.

  5.  Xorg -configure  ?

To hazard a guess, I'd suggest defining the proper Sync
and Refresh rates for your monitor and setting up a better
"screens" block with a higher resolution and bit depth.

Here's part of one of my configuration files:
Section "Monitor"
       Identifier   "Monitor0"
       VendorName   "ProView"
       ModelName    "760N"
       Option      "DPMS"
       HorizSync    35.0 - 70.0
       VertRefresh  50.0 - 120.0

       SubSection "Display"
               Depth     24
               Modes "1280x1024"
               Modes "1600x1200"
               Modes "1024x768"
