(No attachments; the list software sometimes removes them. Also, x11
configuration questions are probably best sent to the freebsd-x11 list.)
First, rename or delete your xorg.conf and try startx again. If it'll
autoconfig correctly for your hardware, problem solved.
If not, or if you want an xorg.conf, a current sample for an ancient
GeForce2 follows. It assumes you have dbus and hal running, and you may
need to change the BusID value to match your system.
