Subject: xorg.conf corruption?
To: <freebsd-questions at freebsd.org>
FreeBSD 11.2-stable on virtualbox
Booted the vm this morning, logged in as normal user, and issued
'startx'. I am presented with this error:
Using config file: "/usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d"
Parse error on line 1 of section (null) in file
"" is not a valid keyword in this section.
xorg.conf.d is an empty directory.
Not sure what would have gone wrong, X has been configured and
working properly on this VM for several weeks. If I :
then reconfigure Xorg and run (as root): Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new,
I get the black screen on pty9 and no errors. Copy the new config to
/usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf, get the same error as before -- parse error
What may be going on? Thanks in advance.
