FreeBSD 4.9 on DELL Inspiron 1100
 
Hi,

I just installed FreeBSD 4.9 on a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop.

It sucessfully installed but when I log in I cannot start X.
When I try "startx", I get an error.

Has anybody experience a problem like or know what may be wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Gary

Guide to getting X-windows working for freebsd:
1). Become root
2). type this in "XFree86 -configure"
3). type this in "cp XF86Config.new /etc/X11/XF86Config"
4). get out of the root user mode
5). type startx and be happy because it works
