Ok I now know that its xorg I have to get installed properly which I cant and I followed everything in the /usr/ports/UPDATING and when I do portupgrade arP for exaple I get a whole bunch of ignored kipped and failed ports I dont know how to fix this. Are there other ports I have to install first or something? I not to familiar with freebsd so if someone can please tell what steps I need to take that would be great. Again thanks alot.
