Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Of course I did. I'm not so stupid. Last year, when the afore-mentioned port was maintained, de X server wouldn't run at its full without this driver. I installed 7.2-RELEASE with full xorg-7.4. The mouse and keyboard won't work.
Well, you mentioned a video driver port was broken. Then you went on to state that the keyboard and mouse didn't work. It's not alot for someone trying to help to work with. Good luck with your problem.
I'm talking about a FreeBSD port which is broken, i.e is not maintained anymore.
Without the driver, that used to be built by the mentioned port, I can't install on my FreeBSD system xf86-video-vga, which is essential for the Xserver to run.
Gentoo portage cannot be compared to the FreeBSD ports collection. The latter is a more sophisticated infrastructure. A certain port may have up to 40 dependencies.
If you ever have built Xorg from ports in FreeBSD, please give me advice.
Did I make myself clear?
I found the solution! ~#:Xorg -config
~#:cp xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Add following lines to the file: "Section "ServerFlags"
Option "DontZap" "Off"
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "Off"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off"
Option "AutoEnableDevices" "Off"
Keyboard and mouse work perfect thereafter.xorgconfig doesn't exist anymore, as it seems.
