For some months I've had increasing troubles with my 4.9/4.10 abruptly crashing. This morning I found my workhorse server, tao, down and hung up while trying to fsck /usr. I cleaned everything thoroughly and then started xdm. The grey screen showed, the mouse was frozen; after 30 seconds, BOOM. Another crash. After yet another round of fsck's, I tried startx. To see what errs might kill the X11 boot. No: same blank grey screen, same frozen mouse,same OS crash.
I tried /stand/sysinstall to reconfigure X. No luck. I'm now doing my next stable sup upgrade and am doing yet another buildworld && buildkernel. I doubt this will resolve the X Window snafu, tho. So::: what x11/*XFree* ports do I have to fetch/build/install?? ((I'm assuming the reason for the crash was X-related, but this is only a first-SWAG.) Also, if anybody has had a similar problem, please let me know. tia, people, gary, ssh'd in from ethic.thought.org -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
