I'm pretty sure DRM/DRI is disabled by default. I haven't manually edited the xorg.conf file, instead I run 'xorgconfig'.
Update: I was able to find an ATI Rage Pro 8MB AGP card. I installed it in the system, ran xorgconfig, then ran startx, and guess what. I got into, and out of X w/ out crashing.. Once. So I tried it again, this time the system crashed. - Very strange. The problems seem to be intermittent. Sometimes I can get in, but when I try to get out, it hangs. Attached are the files. BTW, when I come back up after a crash, is there something special I should do?

I can't use drm, also called dri, right now. If you can use it make sure you have this turned on. Section "DRI" Mode 0666 EndSection This is what he meant by drm: # This loads the GLX module Load "glx" # This loads the DRI module # Load "dri" This is how I am running now. DRI carshes my system. Hopefully its not in the drivers, am am troubleshooting it now. DRI if off in the default conf, I think? Also try some of this: Section "Device" Identifier "8500LE" Driver "radeon" #VideoRam 65536 # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate BusID "PCI:2:0:0" Option "BusType" "AGP" Option "AGPMode" "4" Option "AGPFastWrite" "True" Option "AGPSize" "128" Option "EnableDepthMoves" "True" Option "EnablePageFlip" "On" Option "backingstore" "On" Option "dpms" Screen 0 EndSection You should post you Xorg.conf on a web site for us to check if you can't get it working, or email it to us. I would say not to freebsd because it makes some people annoyed whole are subscribed and I guese on dailup. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
