Description

I thought I would take Dragon Fly BSD for a drive on my AMD FX8120, ASUS M5A97 EVO, Radeon 7950, 16GB unbuffered ECC. I tried to run live from the CD but 'startx' would not launch xorg. So I installed anyway after seeing the graphical installer. After installation it appears xdm is installed but startx will not start xorg. "Xoeg -configure" then "Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new -retro" produces a beautiful crosshatch and moving mouse. So I installed kde-desktop-4.8.4 after I placed "RCD_SCRIPTS_DIR=?/etc/rc.d" and "PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS=YES" in the top endif in /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf I have added "kdm4_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf I have written "echo "exec startkde" ~/.initrc" Then I have correct ttyv8 to "/usr/pkg/bin/kdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure"

Usually my message from my machine is cannot start xorg or /usr/etc/X Then I got a message that kdm will not start because another instance of xdm is running.

I was of course following the recipe in your online handbook. Just thought you might want to know.

Hi,

We're now using dports for packages. Would it be possible that you tested this again with the new stuff?

Cheers,
