    You probably never configured X, or if you did, you might have entered the wrong info. That's usually the most common reason.

    Sorry, just a lot of people with X problems forget to configure X. I didn't mean to come off as an ******* - I'm just in a crappy mood today and I probably should've phrased the post differently (as a question instead of stating an assumption).

    What video card and monitor are you using?

    Oh no problem, im sorry myself because I sound *****y. Umm it's a GeForce FX 5200, that might explain something because it's a nvidia card. The monitor is a dell lcd, can't remember which model.

    The open source nvidia driver should suffice, but you might get better results with the official nvidia driver. You can get it from the ports collection - it's in x11/nvidia-driver.

    Also, for some strange reason, xorgcfg comments out the vertical sync and horizontal refresh rates by default in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If this is the case, uncomment those lines, as the rates you manually entered are probably more suited to your monitor than the ones X uses by default.

    Ok thanks, im gonna do a clean install of something now, either bsd or gentoo 2004.3, can't make up my mind.

    Oh by the way, how did you get hold of openbsd? Did you buy it or use the unoffical iso images?

    edit: BSD It is.

    They encourage people to buy the CDs by not providing complete .iso's, but you can still get ftp install .iso's for free off their website. For example, the OBSD 3.6 ftp install .iso for i386 is here:
    ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.6/i386/cd36.iso

    The cd36.iso will allow you to to setup partitions, but you need internet access to obtain the base system and packages when installing from cd36.iso. If you don't have internet access or just want everything on one CD, there is a way of creating your own complete install .iso, but you should just be fine with cd36.iso.

    I tried 3.6 and was happy so I'm gonna buy the official 3.7 CDs when it comes out.

    Heh, ok. Just for reference, you would add
    Code:
    snd_driver_load="YES"
    to /boot/loader.conf it FreeBSD. But OpenBSD should load that sound module by default anyways.
