Thanks a lot Lowell, After reducing the secure lever I was able to configure the XFree86 by using
#XFree86 -configure & then #cp XF86Config.new /etc/X11/XF86Config (Copying it in common location where XFree86 can find it) But afterthat, whenever I tried to start the X11 using #statrx the system simply froze?? Also when I tried to test the existing configuration by giving # XFree86 -xf86config XF86Config.new It simply frozes the OS??? Any idea whats wrong? Can u please suggest/help asap Macuser ----- Original Message ----- From: Lowell Gilbert <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date: Friday, September 17, 2004 1:24 pm Subject: Re: XFree86-4 config issue > digish reshamwala <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> writes: > > > I installed FreeBSD 5.2.1 using by creating my own installation CD from > the > > freeBSD5.2.1_disc1.iso image from the main ftp site for i386 system. > > > > Now, I am having trouble configuring XFree86-4, and: > > > > After building the X11 by using following commands- as root user > > > > # cd /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4 > > # make install clean > > > > When I tried to configure it using: > > > > # XFree86 -configure > > > > It gives me following error message- (i.e the XFree86.0.log file > exculding > > comments) > > > > " > > Fatal Server error: > > xf86EnableIO: Failed to open /dev/io for extended io > > " > > Looks like you're running at a raised securelevel. > If so, that would explain it; you can't open an X server in a raised > securelevel (it is left as an exercise to the reader to explain why > raw access to system memory and configuration registers are not > considered compatible with raised security levels). > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions- [EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
