Reboot isn't needed to fix things - that's a misbelief from "Windows" land. :-) Simply SSH into the box and kill X. > Yes, but you are supposed to see the x for the mouse.

Ctrl+Alt+Backspace should kill the X server, but doesn't obviously work when no input is accepted. There's the "DontZap" setting in xorg.conf. > I use fluxbox and for some years now, I have never had to put anything > into .xinitrc except "startfluxbox" of just plain "fluxbox" and it > always worked. That's correct. Your ~/.xinitrc should at leas contain an interpreter command, and then the commands you want to run, e. g. #!/bin/sh [ -f ~/.xmodmaprc ] && xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc xsetroot -solid rgb:3b/4c/7a exec fluxbox Note that the fluxbox call is to be preceeded by "exec". > It seems to me that the options for flatpanel must be activated... bin > there, done that... Separate options? For flat panel? I must have slept for many centuries... Let's have a look at the log: > (WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers 'kbd', 'mouse' or > 'vmmouse' will be disabled. > (WW) Disabling Mouse0 > (WW) Disabling Keyboard0 Okay, no input for you. I can't see any further warnings (WW) or errors (EE) in this log. Seems that X is up and running, and nothing more? Check .xinitrc and .xsession respectively. -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
