I had a very similar experience, with the X server reporting missing modules immediately after I thought I'd followed the upgrade instructions to the letter (including the portupgrade -a, migrating all the /usr/X11R6 stuff with mergebase, and various nvidia-driver caveats). Turns out that in my case the xorg-drivers and xorg-fonts ports had not been added by the upgrade process, probably because I had a missing metaport in my previous install. That was the one block of caveats I apparently missed. In the end, I was able to just do a make install of the xorg metaport and it picked up the missing two, then I was back in business. Perhaps that's what's going on with you? Or perhaps not --- I see you also mentioned you hadn't updated ModulePath, and perhaps that was the only reason you are having problems? I didn't see a follow-up saying that was it. -- Tom Russo KM5VY SAR502 DM64ux http://www.swcp.com/~russo/ Tijeras, NM QRPL#1592 K2#398 SOC#236 AHTB#1 http://kevan.org/brain.cgi?DDTNM "And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway?
