Default intel ExpressChipset Series 4 support in pcbsd9.1-RELEASE
Ever since i installed PCBSD-9.1-RELEASE [07-02]... i had trouble in the most easily configured "X" part which was possible on earlier versions...

WI-FI is another issue but thats not important now, so i followed this LINK and furter to it, This one

After my usual VESA mode log in, i followed the above links and i could see i could test "X" with startx command.
now when i reboot with normal mode, "X" doesnt load !
Then i disabled gdm in rc.conf and rebooted.
when i issued startkde command, i got a message that mentioned $DISPLAY not configured or something... but when i issue startx command, i am taken to TWM with the new Xorg conf file.

how do i use this configuration to manually logon to my KDE, Gnome and Fluxbox ? [these are the 3 desktops i currently use and listed by gdm]

here is the new xorg.conf file that i am using

Thumbs up solved
After a lot of jugglery, i got a workaround to get back to my kde4 desktop and ofcourse, gnome and fluxbox..

i followed the above and to get to graphic login manager, i noticed gdm didnt work so i tried with kdm and voila, i got the graphic login.

when i enabled gdm in /etc/rcconf, i was back to suare 1 so i had to reboot, use vesa driver, killed X and used virtual console to follow the procedures above, this time i edited the rc.conf file this way

Quote:
gdm_enable="NO"
kdm4_enable="YES"
i did not touch any other file [as i had tested X with TWM earlier] and rebooted. The login: prompt halted for seemingly endless moments [almost 0 seconds you can say] and KDM popped up with the resolution i had set !

Here is the SHOT of my KDE4.10

If the admin feels, this thread may be of help if moved to TIPS and TRICKS section...

Viva PCBSD
