It's me again.

I have been trying to setup Xwindows and run into a problem.

Running Xorg -configure give a fatal server error:

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:02:0
(II) SUNFFB: driver for Creator, Creator 3D and Elite 3D

Fatal server error:
xf86MapVidMem: could not mmap screen [s=2000,a=e17fe000] (Invalid

(Tail end of log file)

The tail of dmesg.boot file shows:

Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad0a

I must admit I do not have a clue about where to go next, as all my
knowledge is PC based.

I am trying to get the machine going so I can use it in a headless mode,
with Xwindows running so to use Xwindows/KDE remotely via VNC.

Has anybody got a working config file I can use or give me some pointers
to getting this going?
