Re: XFree86 on OpenBSD

I decided to dump the output of XFree to a file and then I was able to see what the problem was. Monitor specs were too low. I went back and selected an appropriate monitor config and now everything is ok.

Look at your /etc/XF86Config file and the full output of the
server. Either the "640x480" mode line is not included in
/etc/XF86Config, or it is rejected by the SVGA server for some reason
(which is probably listed above the error line you're quoting here).
