A few days ago I installed DragonFly BSD 2.8.2-RELEASE and all went very well, but when I tried to configure X the problems came.
I have a SiS 630 integrated video card, and was running very well since DragonFly BSD 1.2, I was using basically the same xorg.conf file since then to DragonFly 2.6. This situation is very weird, cause when I did a startx, it ran the default wm, I mean the one that opens 3 windows with green borders. But when I ran it with xfce4 in .xinitrc, it shows a blank screen and can’t get out to any tty, then I had to reset the box.
Then I tried with PC-BSD 7.1.1 but never can´t launch the graphic installer, this is strange cause, months ago, I installed the same PC-BSD, same CDs into this machine and detected very well my SiS card, and now it can’t!!
FreeBSD 8.1 did the same, xorg configured and startx goes to a blank screen with no possibilities to switch with ALT+F1, F2, F3, etc.
I use the same xorg.conf I have always used for my past BSD systems, I don’t have it right now but the highlights are:
Device “sis”, with xf86-video-sis on FreeBSD 8.1
With device “vesa” it throws an error saying it can’t open the display.
The HorizSync and VertRefresh are according to the same monitor I have for at least 5 years.
I will be very thankful if someone can explain to me the cause of this weird behaviour.
