Xorg still does not start.
No screens found
I added then removed the fbdev.
Will I need to compile Xorg without fbdev?
The file xorg.conf is non existent on my system
If you need more information, tell me.

There are two things you need to do:

sysctl hw.ofwfb.relax_mmap=1

And then set the UseFBDev option in xorg.conf to Off. It's a Linux-ism that has snuck into the Rage 128 driver.
