    X Server Error No Screens Found


    I managed a successful installation of FreeBSD 6.1 Release. But I cannot get the XServer working. Unfortunately I cannot post the xorg.conf because I could not find a way to mount UNIX native partition on Gentoo and vice-versa. But I can explain some of the things here:

    1. Firstly I went for a "full install".
    2. As mentioned in the handbook I did
    Code:
    xorgconfig
    3. I passed all the options the same as I did for gentoo, and gentoo is working fine. (all fine).
    4. Then I started the Xserver by issuing
    Code:
    startx
    5. After this I got this error: (/var/log/Xorg.0.log)
    [code]
    ....
    ....
    (EE) No Screens found
    ....
    ....

    What do I do? Thanks for any help in advance.

    No both do roughly the same thing. I tried xorgconfigure again and this time I managed to get X working and gnome2 and KDE are up!!! Trying to download WindowMaker now.

    How I got it working?
    I had been trying with the mouse as /dev/psm0
    This time I tried /dev/sysmouse

    Lesson learnt: LINUX and UNIX don't run exactly the same way
