I get the message: 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 X. > "X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown)" 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: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/x11.html 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. > Does it mean I'll have to re-install? almost certainly not. we just need to figure out what happened. hth, epi > After install I just had to > re-enter my root password and sign me up as a user again, because the > install didn't keep those settings.
