So exactly what error are you getting? You are sure x is completely installed? What version of x are you referring to? What happens when you try to run the GUI x config? The shell x config?

Did you reference the Docs at when you were setting up X windows?

I just installed FreeBSD and followed the X windows docs and didnt have a problem, except trying to figure out the HorizSync and VertRefresh of this old no-name beater monitor, lol....

Configure--> XFree86

This will re run the Xfree86 config for FreeBSD. The textmode one has the most choices of monitors and vid cards.
