I have set-up FreeBSD on an HP Vectra Intel Based PC, now when I go to /stand/sysinstall and "do a post installation configuration" and try to set-up the XFree86 server under Video card the model of my card does not exist. My video card model is SiS 6205 but FreeBSD supports or listed only 5205. I pressume this is the main hurdle why my "startx" command to launch Xwindows is not succesful. How could I get the correct driver for my video Thanks.
I am having a similar problem on an IBM Thinkpad laptop. I installed FreeBSD 4.7-RC2 and XFree86 4.2 did not start. What is strange is that I have another partition with SuSE Linux 7.2 and XFree86 4.2 installed and it works fine.
The chipset is silicon motion LynxEM+, which is claimed to be supported by 4.2.
