One question: I have just installed FreeBSD 6.3, and tried "startx"
but it isnt coming up, giving some sort of error. Am I missing
something here? I did choose for "Windows X" during the FreeBSD setup
- shall I do a port upgrade?

[cut]

Fatal server error:

[cut x config stuff]

I did configure Xorg as it said in the handbook, but after that the
test didnt work, still gave me the same error. I then installed from a
port (I assume that will be the latest Xorg 7.3 is it? How can I check
what version do I have?

What is way forward now? uninstall this and install Xorg 6?

 1) Post xorg.conf.new as suggested.
 2) pkg_info | grep xorg  will show you whats installed
 3) check the hardware list to see if there are know issues
 4) Google the error and freebsd + xorg + your system

You will get the most (probably) from posting xorg.conf.new. along with
'uname -a' output. Don't edit it just send it to the list avoiding line
wrapping.

Just to repeat. I installed FreeBSD 6.3, its a new Toshiba notebook. I
chose to install X Windows during sysinstall. The very first time I
ran startx it didnt work. Then I did the "Xorg -configure" and tried
again, and still doesnt work. Please help !!!!

Thanks

Hopefully other will correct any errors I make. Hainvg said that ...

If you are still getting:

   (EE) Failed to load module "fbdev" (module does not exist, 0)
   (WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
   (II) Module "ddc" already built-in
   (EE) VESA(0): No matching modes
   (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

   Fatal server error:
   no screens found
   X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown)

You need to deal with at least the (EE) errors. You are getting a more basic error that if you are using KDE, Gnome or whatever for a window manager.

(EE) Failed to load module "fbdev"..
  You have to figure what's with fbdev. Possibilities are you need a driver
  other than vesa, or Xorg got built incorrectly.

(EE) VESA(0): No matching modes
  I believe this means what it says. Try adding

    DefaultDepth 16 or 24  -  pick one and
    Modes     "1280x1024"  - to the depth you picked

(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
   I think this means there were two video cards found. From your
   description I do not know why this would be. The xorg server choose the
   other one so this is not a drop dead error.

I am assuming you get the same error running startx or
Xorg -config xorg.conf.new. If not try the latter command.
