In response to "Neeraj Sharma" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:

I tried copying my xorg.conf from Ubuntu (which automatically probes
everything and creates a xorg.conf) and tried to use on FreeBSD. But still
it hangs... I wonder if its because some drivers are missing in FreeBSD for
my monitor. My laptop has ATI Radeon 9000IGP in case that rings a bell to
someone in the same situation as me b4.

Are you sure it's "hanging"?  Have you tried CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to get
out?  Do you have a mouse cursor?

Before you fsck around randomly, check X's log files in /var/log/.  I've
found them to be incredibly verbose, but frequently helpful.

Here is xorg.conf from my Ubuntu Install
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following commands:
#   cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.custom
#   sudo sh -c 'md5sum /etc/X11/xorg.conf
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

I am a newbie to FreeBSD world. I am trying to install FreeBSD6.2 on

the command X -configure which created a file. When I

to run X it just shows a blank screen and I am not able to go back to
console also.

I tried playing around with the parameters in file but
success. If anyone can help me with this it will be great...

That is alright to show you xorg works or not.
Yes, a blank screen and a locked keyboard is a perfect description of
an X configuration that isn't working. ;-)

After doing that press ctrl+alt+backspace

Then #cp /root/ /etc/X11/xorg.conf then type startx or
reboot your notebook.
Sorry for correcting, but this is not adviseable at this point. His X
isn't working obviously, so installing xorg.conf into the right place
would lead to more problems, without solving anything.
He can do so when the X configuration is working.

The only thing I can see right offhand based on your emails is that you are using the ati driver. Now, correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that this driver didn't function nearly as well as it does under Linux, esp with the newer cards (driver's outdated in FreeBSD). Have you tried a safer setup, like vesa first to see whether or not X loads?

Bill's right too--you should check your X logs.
