Xorg log


following handbook, I've done completely clean installation of FreeBSD 13.0 on
amd64 machine (kontron board + W-2123 + 8GB RAM + AMD R5 230 1GB GPU.

I've installed xorg by:

# pkg install xorg

and then on a user in wheel group I've attempted to start X by:

$ startx

the result is:

xauth:  file /home/karel/.serverauth.36307 does not exist

Recommended Xorg.0.log is attached to this report too.

Now, my question is how to proceed as handbook concentrate attention to
possibly old platforms/system and not new one like pure UEFI + fb.
