Hi, I just installed FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE today
and everything went as planned and I am to load the kernel and log in as root. However, when I proceed to attempting to setup the X Windows System something goes wrong. I typed # Xorg -configure and I receive the error:
Fatal Server Error: xf86Enable IO: Failed to open /dev/io for extended I/O. I googled for an answer, and someone told me to modify the file: /etc/rc.conf and change to the following: kern_securelevel="0" (was previously set at 1) and kern_securelevel_enabled="NO"(was previously set at YES). I reinstalled FreeBSD and then proceeded as soon as I logged in to root to change /etc/rc.conf. I typed #Xorg -configure and still go the exact same error, so i proceeded to continue to the next step of the Windows X server and did #Xorg -config xorg.conf.new and then modified the file xorg.conf.new. I found this file entirely blank, so I typed in all of the things following this guide
It was as follows:
(I did # edit xorg.conf.new)
I then saved it, and tried startx, but then got the error: No Screens Found.Code:
VendorName "HP Pavilion"
ModelName "hp pavilion f50"
VertRefresh 60-75 (I was not quite sure about this so I put my flat panel monitor's v. sync range)
Viewport 0 0
Here is the monitor which I have:
Does anyone knwo why I am getting all of the errors, I would really appreciate it. Please feel free to ask for any more info from me which may be useful in debugging these problems. Thanks a lot.
EDIT: By the way, my video card is an ATI Radeon 9550 256MB AGP Dual Monitor Graphic Card (which is supported by FreeBSD)
