I just installed 4.7 on a new machine and all seems well
except the XFree86 is only working on the default VGA mode.
Configuring X is a complete nightmare, am I missing something ?
I haven't a clue what sync rates my monitor has and have no manual for it.,
also I intend moving the server to a new office where it will be attached
a different monitor.
I've tried selecting various options from the various menus but all
that happens is my screen blinks and I have to reboot and try again
with the same result.
Apart from the fact it doesn't work, does it generate an error log
so I can try and work out the problem ?
Is there no standard config which would allow something better than
VGA. I don't need to squeeze the last drop of performance out of the
monitor/graphics card, just get something useable up and running.
I've been installing & using FreeBSD for about 6 years now and have
never gained any confidence in installing X, it either works or it doesn't.
This must put off loads of potential users , particularly those such as
who don't know (or much care) about what chipsets & stuff they have.
