So i tired a clean install with Xorg 7.2 on a clean install of freebsd and I
didn't know about the update from 6.9 to 7.2. I would like a system up ad
running because I need this computer for school. I also tried installing the
port xorg that is now 7.2 and it failed. I used pkg_add -r xorg and it
installed but gdm will not run from the gnome2 port it looked for
/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm, I see the fix xorg-libraries.diff but i don't know what
to do with it, do i put it in certian folder then install from ports? Any
help would be great As I just got kernel upgrade working but this update of
xorg set me back by a couple of days and i need this up to do some work on
