I liked the x configuration tool with the earlier branch because it gave you something close to edit instead of starting from scratch.
    All the installer did was:
    Code:
    xorgcfg -textmode
    True that it might be nice to do it for you, and FBSD newbs probably don't know they need to do this, but think about it - Xorg isn't part of the base system, it's third party software. There's no need for the FBSD installer to do anything for the user with regard to third party apps.

    BTW, it was 5.2.1 --> 5.3 in which xorgcfg -textmode was removed from sysinstall.
    No I didnt, but I used common sense, and configured xorg and ttys config file to boot kdm.
