Please don't top post. If you don't know what that means, please take
the time to Google for it. I have reformatted this post so that it
might be more readily deciphered.
Now, onto your problem. Unfortunately, my crystal ball is out for
repairs today. Since you did not bother to include any specific
information or a copy of the log file that was created as specified in
the 'UPDATING' file when you attempted to update 'xorg', I cannot
assist you. However, now that you have deinstalled it, you should be
able to start fresh -- I think.
You probably need to follow these instructions:
It is necessary to set the XORG_UPGRADE environment variable while
updating from xorg 6.9 to 7.2. Once the upgrade is complete this
is no longer be required.
For users of csh-like shells:
# setenv XORG_UPGRADE yes
For users of sh-like shells:
# export XORG_UPGRADE=yes
I am assuming that you have the portupgrade-devel port installed. If
not, it would probably behoove you to do so first as described in the
You could also probably go this route via portmanager. First, make
sure you have an up-to-date ports tree. Next, run:
This should make sure that all of the dependencies are listed
correctly. Now, run:
portmanager x11/xorg -l -f
That should get xorg installed along with its dependencies.
