after my first mail, i have as always looked for find the solution by my
self. i vorked with cvsup and portmanager, in order to update and
rebuilt all X11, xorg and their dependancies; i have
worked with portmanager -u. Cvsup. In the end, i have done:
portmanager /usr/Ports/X11/ -f -l.
pkgdb -F /usr/ports/x11/xorg
Now i have the version 7.02 of xorg. when i do Xorg -config
/root/xorg.config, i have as response: could not read default font
fixed. what does it mean? what i must do?
i have choosed in xorg.conf.new: modes 1024x768, defaultdepht 24;
note that the new version of xorg recognise my driver, the 6.09 version
did n't do that, i was in vesa not nvidia driver.
In few minits, i will do your proposition.
