I installed XFree86, then i run XFree86 -configure, then i run XFree86 -xf86config XF86Config.new.
Everything is ok. Than i cp XF86Config.new to /etc/X11/XF86Config (i tried to copy and to
/usr/X11R6/etc/X11/XF86Config but there is no directory X11). then, when i run startx i get the
next error: screen not found... I know i can do everythiing with xf86cfg but i don`t understand
why the first way has problems (may be i have problems :)))) ). Thank You!
Please wrap your lines at < 80 characters.
It is not clear. Did you create the file /etc/X11/XF86Config? If there is no /etc/X11 directory, you can create it with: mkdir /etc/X11
Is it possible there is another XF86Config floating around out there that you are actually using? Try looking at /var/log/XFree86.0.log

So, it tells you which config file it is using.
Also, have you installed the /usr/ports/x11/wrapper port yet? You will need that to startx as a regular user.
PS> a better title for this post would be: startx gives "screen not found" or something along those lines :o)
