do you have any clue about what 'tweakings' you might have done? did you
touch /etc/ttys or the 'kern_securelevel' settings in /etc/rc.conf? making
certain changes to either of these can seriously hamper your ability to use

though it sounds as though X was working, another possibility is that your
XF86Config is misconfigured, thus broken. how did you set-up X? during
the install or after with xf86config?
please check/var/log/XFree86.0.log for error messages. i'm pretty sure
that you'll see something that will point you in the right direction.
if you think that it is X that is 'broken', please have another look at the
handbook section on X:
if you think that it was one of your 'tweaks', please let us know what you
did, so that we can help you undo it.
