    Re:Setting up everything in FreeBSD 5.2

    Hi,

    I installed FreeBSD 5.2 after it was installed. I restart my system with BSD. At login i typed root and then password:

    # /stand/./sysinstall (remember the period before the slash).

    I went to Configure and set Mouse to Auto. I went to Configure-->XFree86-->xf86cfg -textmode and i set the Mouse Protocol to MouseSystems. (I forgot to edit /etc/X11 file at the command line to change it if i need too)

    I went to Configure-->XFree86--XDesktop and i chose GNOME2. I let it install. I restart my system back into BSD.

    Login: dsantamassino password:
    $ startx

    Good job dsanta!!!

    Looks like you might want to run through the xf86cfg -textmode again, and make sure to set everything. Looks like you didn't setup a profile for your settings. Don't worry about the terminology, setting each one in order correctly should get you to an X screen or another error (most likely a mouse error, but probably not. Just common).

    Just for your information, when you are doing a command like you did away from it's directory, you don't need to add the "." . Just in the present directory the command is in. For instance.

    dsanta# /stand/sysinstall

    versus:

    dsanta:/stand# ./sysinstall

    Run /stand/sysinstall again, and go to Configure, then XFree86, then xf86cfg -textmode. Set you video settings again. If all are set correctly.....<read above>.

    Hi Derek,

    I have never used FreeBSED. However, it seems like the XFree86 configuration is very similar to the way it works on Linux.

    Try posting your /etc/X11/XFree86 config file (if suh a thing exists.)
