What keyboard, mouse, graphics card, color depth, X-driver, and screen size did you select AND what are the exact models that you have actually installed???
I've had this a bunch, it 99.99% of the time that you selected a combination of graphics card and screen size/color depth that can't be handled with the X-Driver you choose. NORMALLY, simply choosing a lower color depth and screen size will at least get your thru the setup. - Sean Countryman -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]]On Behalf Of C.

I'm loading FreeBSD 4.5 from a CD obatined from a Sam's Unleashed publication "FreeBSD Unleashed", authors Michael Urban and Brian Tiemann. This all takes place during configuration after selecting the mouse, keyboard, graphics card and screen size. I: click on "done" Screen: Attempting to start server then screen: Unable to start X server Press enter to reconfigure I: press enter Screen displays: very large X in middle of scree on a background of large white dots. I: ctl-alt-bkspc screen displays msg: the Free86 configuration process seems to have failed.
