Well, I did get it up and running, but no thanks to any information in either the xorg or freebsd manuals... I accidentally ran startx and to my great surprise the screen came up with fluxbox and did work, albeit very sporadically... it kept going black and sort-of flickered. I shutdown and checked the log and lo and behold, the configuration file was one I had forgotten about that came from another computer from where the current disk was cloned. So, with a little tweaking, the thing now works - but the what and the why excape me completely. The configurations does not need any parameters for horiz or vertical scanning - only the screen depth and monitor size. I guess the name of the manufacturer and the model are irrelevant. Oh yes, the AllowEmptyInput had to be "off" ; the DontZap was also "off" Setting the FlatPanel settings (3 of them) to "True" does not seem to make any difference whether they are T of F. So, although it now works, configuration is still a total mystery. Does anyone understand just what is going on or are we just groping in the dark along with our blind leaders? _______________________________________________ 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"
