I managed to get things working again after several days of trying a number of things including portupgrade -f -a (which I needed to do anyway...). I'm not sure this is a real fix, but X now works after I used xorgconfig to generat an /etc/X11/xorg.conf. startx works like a charm. The startup was perhaps five seconds slower than I'm accustomed. Otherwise, ctl-alt-F1 gets me to a console and ctl-alf-F9 takes me back to X. Back to normal. Before using xorgconfig, X -configure generated an xorg.conf that gave me a black screen from which only a reboot could recover. > [...] > Xorg -configure no longer reports the "undefind symbol...." > but I still get a black screen when testing the config, > with "out of range OSD when using a VGA to monitor cable, and > just a black screen (no OSD message) with the DVI cable. > Tried a second monitor also, same results.

Load increases until the box either hangs completely or reboots, or I quickly log in remotely and reboot. > Xorg -configure now reports: > > (++) Using config file: "/root/xorg.conf.new" > (WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID > PCI:1:0:1) found > (**) RADEON(0): RADEONPreInit Same thing happened to me. > [...] > Thanks Andy, Mark for your help.

Try using xorgconfig's result. There are some niceties about the video that I'm lacking, but I don't do those anyway. -- Spencer PriceNash [EMAIL PROTECTED] many other addresses http://www.io.com/~spencer many other sites _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
