Please try to do 'cd /dev; sh MAKEDEV io' and try again. If that doesn't work try to load the GENERIC kernel. If that doesn't work try the following.... I don't know what situation you are in (i.e. fresh FreeBSD install or updated the source with CVS) but i'm asumming you _dont_ installed the world just a few days ago. I've had similair problemens in the past. I've updated my source tree and used 'portupgrade' (its in the port collection) to update out only cetain packages, when i sould have done all related packages of XFree86-4 and/or KDE, GNOME, ect. I found this often solves problem for me. To do this you could give the command: 'portupgrade -Rf XFree86-4' or any other port. If you don't have this port insalled look in /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade.
