I did get out late but I could not leave it, as usual, so got the 1.4.9 (Makefile,v 1.7 2009/01/08 16:58:29 and the corresponding distinfo), rebuilt the port and, success...

Well, mostly. I had to DefaultDepth 16 in the Screen to really get her up (errors otherwise, [1]). The other option probably is to go w/o DRI, and I really may consider that since it looks kinda crappy still -- but not today anymore. At least, we're back to xorg.conf, and also there still is the option with the junk box... :)

So thanks for the hint, and

All the best regards,



[1] Errors remain at 24 bpp depth.
(EE) MGA(0): Static buffer allocation failed, not initializing the DRI
(EE) MGA(0): Need at least 9216 kB video memory at this resolution, bit depth

Psssst! Schon vom neuen GMX MultiMessenger gehört? Der kann`s mit allen:
