Try to jump around to different places I'm sure it will start a last thing will the removal of your existing XF86-installation and re-installation by means of pkgtool.
Thanks for the suggestion... but it does not seem to be working for me... I have one more thing that I have found out. I would like to add to this post before reintalling X...
My edited XF86Config file is not being used. I switched my nvidia driver to nv in the config.. and the nvidia module still continues to load (I get the nvidia splash screen). So I checked the XFree86.0.log file.. and it is loading all the settings from my old config???
I went as far as rm'ing all the XF86Config files from /etc/X11 and yet startx continues to load with no problem???
anyone have any ideas what is going on??
