You need to alter your XF86Config. What you need to do is look what the identifier is in your screen section

Code:
Section "Screen"
 Identifier "Screen Configured"
Say it looks like the above change the serverlayout to match it like

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
 Identifier "XFree86 Configured"
# Screen  "XFree86" 
Screen "Screen Configured"
I've commented the line out with a hash, You can simply edit or delete it if you prefer.

Hi,

Now the error message I get is:

" xf86Openserial: NO Device specified.
"Mouse: cannot open input Device
PreInit failed for input device "Mouse"

My mouse "InputDevice" section has the following configuration.

Section "InputDevice"
#Identifier and Driver

"Identifier " Mouse"
"Driver " mouse"


Some tell where is the mistake.

Thanks,

I'm sorry but I'm reaching the limits of my knowledge with *BSD, but I think what's missing is the device line, which will be something like:

Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"

But the device is almost defintaley not /dev/input/mice, you'll need to look at your distro's docs for that.

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
        Option      "Buttons" "6"
Note: This is for a wheel mouse... fix the last line for the for your actual mouse.

Great Frob23,

Now I'm done.

In case I want Freebsd to automatically start in graphical mode what should I do ?

Thanks,

Edit /etc/ttys

Change this line:
Code:
ttyv8   "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   off  secure
to this:
Code:
ttyv8   "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   on  secure

Note: make sure any user you want to log in through that has a valid ~/.xsession -- as ~/.xinitrc will not work. And make sure that ~/.xsession is executable.
