I'm running FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE #0 on two machines and just CVSup'd my
systems last night finishing with portupgrade this morning. I ran into
a problem with machine #1. I ran portupgrade and stumbled with the
xterm and x11-fonts/linux-fontconfig upgrades. I tried to run startx to
google the problems but got: command not found.
Reinstalling linux-base seemed to resolve the x11-fonts problem. I then
deinstalled, and reinstalled xorg-clients to upgrade it and ran
portupgrade -aRr. No more apparent problems. However, still unable to
run startx. I searched /usr/X11R6/bin and couldn't locate the file either.
The second machine was also upgrading and I noticed the same/similar
failure to install xterm 206_1 due to a conflict with xorg-clients. I
haven't attempted to fix it yet for fear of losing startx here also.
I'm thinking of deinstalling/reinstalling one, or more ports to
reinstall startx on machine #1. (Not sure which ones, however). Any
