I don't seem to have generated much comment.

I suspect you are thinking as I do that if your servers don't immediately  
download then their is a bandit on my Internet line??

Hi FreeBSD -

I have an AMD HD 7950 video card so I am trying to install the latest  
FreeBSD xorg available (7.5.2) for an updated driver.

When I start make the install immediately stops at MesaLib-7.6.1.tar.gz.   
I can restart it on a primary using the location given then after a short  
time the install stops at /x11/9menu  (/9menu-1.8.shar.gz)  I can also  
attempt to restart this on a couple of servers but after a trip around the  
world my install still stops at /x11/9menu

I live in Maine (USA) so I pick the MIT primary ftp5 since I inadvertly  
determined it was MIT.  ftp1 also sends me on a trip around the world with  
the same result.

If I can install xorg-7.5.2 I am hoping then that the install of  
kde4-4.8.4 will complete on this new install of FreeBSD 9.0

Does anyone else have a favorite ftp that cooperates?  (And I notice the  
location in the server is different from the primaries on other servers?)
