XFree86 Configuration Problems
by Steve LeBlanc © 2003.6.22
Installed FreeBSD for first time. Text login was fine. NIC worked. Did a telnet and ftp to computers on the Internet. All seemed to work except for configuring XFree86. No screen found when I did startx. Below are the details:
The full commented files: XF86Config.txt and XFreelog.txt
Settings XFree86 Ver:4.2.1 (protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600) Release Date: 3 September 2002 Motherboard: ECS K7S5A, 40GB drive, 256 Ram OS: FreeBSD 5.0 RELEASE Video: S3 Savage2000 (generic) 64MB, 3D Monitor: Cornea MT1700 17" LCD H: 31.5-80, V: 56-75
After install I tried both: xf86cfg -textmode and xf86config to reconfigure. I read the docs deeply and redid this 15 times, using the various command line tools. Each of the last 10 times, I typed in my settings and selected my Graphics card from the list. I just can't get startx to work. Below are my XF86Config file and my XFree log file, with comments removed.
Fatal server error: no screens found
Check the handbook:
5.4.2 Configuring XFree86 4.X
Configuration of XFree86 4.X is a multi-step process. The first step is to
build an initial configuration file with the -configure option to XFree86.
As the super user, simply run:
# XFree86 -configure
Check as well to see if you have multiple config files and are working hard to alter the one the system *isn't* using.
