I had 'xfce4' working perfectly under Xorg-6.9; however, after

I moved the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and build a new one using "Xorg
--configure". I was then able to at least begin loading the program
before it crashed. I reinstalled the entire 'xorg' meta port as well
as the 'xfce4' meta port. I used an updated ports tree for this task.
Unfortunately, I still cannot get this to load.

I have posted a copy of the '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' file at:

I also have a copy of the script I created when typing in 'startx'
available at:

There is one interesting point however. I noticed this error message:

** (xfce-mcs-manager:82803): WARNING **: display_plugin: Unable to configure display resolution Failed to run gnome-keyring-daemon: Failed to execute child process "gnome-keyring-daemon" (No such file or directory)

** (xfwm4:82807): WARNING **: The display does not support the XComposite extension.

(xfwm4:82807): Gdk-WARNING **: shmget failed: error 12 (Cannot allocate memory)

Looks like the above is the fatal error. I suspect you rebuilt xfwm4 for shared memory, shmget. You need to add this to your kernel, or rebuild xfwm4 not to use it, if that's possible.
