Fellow newb here, but I've also been working on X issues with my GForceFX in Linux *and* FBSD so I might (and I stress might) be able to help.
First things first, can you post your /etc/X11/XF86Config file? Are you using *dm (xdm, kdm, gdm, etc) or are you booting to CLI and doing startx? I've had more issues with kdm and my FX than with CLI + startx. As for AGP and kernel config, I've gotten mine working with AGP in the kernel and compiled with no optimizations other than CPUTYPE. Once I get a look at your files (and compare them to mine at home) I might have some more suggestions. chris --- Don Whitteker <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Hello all and thank you in advance...first off I am > still a bit of a > newbie with FreeBSD (and *NIX in general) but am > learning more every > day = ) I hope I got this on the correct list but feel > free to point > me in the right direction if I did not > > OK...here's the problem.
