Herb, 1. Get to a terminal (ctl-alt-F2 should get you there). 2. Log in as root. 3. Execute: 'Xorg -config' This command should probe your hardware and create a sample xorg.conf file ("xorg.conf.new", I think) in root's home directory. 4. Using your favorite console-based editor, edit the new xorg.conf.new file. In the "ServerLayout" section, add the following: Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false" 5. Save the xorg.conf.new file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf 6. Make sure the following 2 lines are in /etc/rc.conf: hald_enable="YES" dbus_enable="YES" 7. Reboot the computer and test X.
