<snip useful upgrade info> I know this post was from a few weeks ago, but I just wanted to thank you profusely for this info. After considering that XFree86 will no longer be the default X server in FreeBSD soon, and that many distros are also switching, in addition to the fact that XFree86 doesn't recognize my video card no matter what I did, I finally took the plunge and installed X.org. Thanks to your explicit instructions, so far it's running without a hitch (and now I can also get 1600X1200 resolution, a necessary thing on my 21" monitor). I had considered just yanking XFree and installing X.org, but I'm pleased to know a better method that allows portupgrade to get the new dependencies correct. Kudos. - jt _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
