Lightbulb Just a video problem

Heya, pals!

Would someone give me a clue of whatīs happening in here? I have a SiS 6326 video board installed under a FreeBSD 4.2 system, but i canīt figure out whatīs the matter with its configuration. I just canīt connect to Xserver... Setting the configuration with xf86config at the simplest mode didnīt help at al... I am a real dummy in this damn Unix world :-]

THX!

I've had the same problem with the same board.
I've solved it with the "graphical" setup of the x-server.
You can access this with the installation, afterwards it also must be possible, but i don't know how. But within the graphical setup you can must select the proper board with the settings and it will work. Why it's working with this setup and not with the xf86config setup i don't know, but jsut try and it;ll help solving your problem

kind regards
