GUI not starting in FreeBSD 6.2
I installed FreeBSD 6.2 on my multiboot system(It has WinXP, Ubuntu, openSuSE and Vectorlinux). I'm using GRUB to load all these OSes.
The FreeBSD is working fine except that there is no gui. If I type 'startx' a blank screen with some box |Hz| floating, comes. Then if I go the the terminal I've these error msgs(the lines beginning with (EE)):
Unable to loacate /open config file
Failed to load module 'fbdev' (module does not exist, 0)
I'd selected 'All' in the package selection option so X should have been installed.
I dont have a seperate graphics card but a onboard via 8237A chipset.
I'm new to BSD and Linux. So please guide me step-by-step. Any links with lucid explanation is also welcome.
Thanks a million to Daark.Child!!!
We have been working for 2 days with 3 complete (re)builds.
We couldn't get the video/monitor working.
We confirmed that we installed all GUIs. We tried different monitors.
We tried a ton of different commands. All we had to use was xorgconfig to actually config the GUI.
Blonde moment and it's OK, cause I'm blonde! ;)
You are the best and keep up the great job!
Thanks to you we have a successful GUI installation with all available GUIs running on FreeBSD. Now onto the real hard stuff.
