I have setup PCBSD and a Standard Freebsd with gui. and kbunto. They do
not close X completely. I get a flashing screen.
I can still type commands while the screen flashes. I have done a google
search but nothing seems to match my problem.

I installed opensolaris and it doesn't do this but I want bsd.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that has intel mobile graphics. Is
this something with the intel graphics driver or an installed software

Does it sound similar to this issue?



Yea, that is mostly what I am experiencing. I followed the thread and
didn't see a resolution.

Last I used that laptop, there still was no resolution. The only thing I could find to prevent it from happening in the first place is to not use xscreensaver, xrander, etc. Once I disabled those apps, the flashing console went away.

I did find that 'startx' from the flashing console, and immediately closing X would drop me back to a normal, visible console.
