OK.  Either you give me information on what happens, or I'll drop the
case.  What warning message?


Please read the rest of the thread. I'm getting a warning that the HorizSync
rate is outside the capabilities of my current hardware, whether I use the
default (none), the values from MonitorsDB, or what other people have posted
in their xorg.conf files for other Dell Latitude D610s.

Why when you boot?


Because I run KDE at boot. From /etc/ttys:
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodaemon"  xterm on  secure

What does the screen look like?


Fine. That's not the issue, as stated several times in this thread.

 What does the Xorg.0.log look like?


I've sent it twice. What else do you want to know?

Is it also in the mail you received?  It's definitely not here.


I only see the version which was sent by Gmail. It collates my emails when I
receive one I sent myself. Maybe the attachment was too big for the list,
but I didn't receive any error messages or warnings. Here are the headers
for the attachment:

------=_Part_133278_20384899.1178002886715
Content-Type: text/x-log; name=Xorg.0.log; charset=ANSI_X3.4-1968
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
X-Attachment-Id: f_f160abdg
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Xorg.0.log"

This is a pre-release version of the X server from The X.Org Foundation.

From where?


Official FreeBSD mirrors. I don't know where to find the settings, but I
used the first Swiss mirror in sysinstall.

I ran portupgrade -a . Surely, I should have the same or newer than

Based on your statements, it's hard to say.


Based on me installing from an official CD, and using the default settings
for portupgrade? In that case, I don't understand why.

Also, pkg_version -vIL= right now doesn't list X.org.

This suggests that you installed it from elsewhere.  As I said,


I installed from the official FreeBSD mirrors.

Try rebuilding from the Ports Collection.


I've already done a
portupgrade -a
since I installed.
