Default Xorg question

Is it possible to use the configuration from OpenBSD on FreeBSD?

AFAIK, Xenocara is based on an older version of Xorg - 7.3 I think - and since I've been using the same conf file for ages (even before 7.0) on FreeBSD, I'll dare to say the OpenBSD and FreeBSD conf files are compatible.

But I might be wrong, so why not try it yourself?

It will depend on specific things -in- the configuration file. Some may be valid, some may not. For instance, there is development occuring right now on a new Intel DRM X driver that uses UXA and eliminates EXA and XAA support.

My point: if your configuration file selects something invalid for the system you are on, it will fail.

An Xorg configuration file is fundamentally platform and OS dependent, for example mouse configuration often varies.

Don't share xorg.conf files, as a reference? sure, but know what you're doing.

Xorg is up and working but I'm not running it right now.
Yeah, I was thinking maybe- That was cute, very cute.- it would be necessary to make an xorg.conf by guessing the same path in freebsd from an openbsd xorg.conf.

xorg.conf should be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

The default Files section:
Code:
ModulePath "/usr/local/lib/xorg/modules"
FontPath   "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
FontPath   "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"
FontPath   "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/OTF"
FontPath   "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
FontPath   "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
FontPath   "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
The mouse "Device" (mouse's InputDevice section): /dev/sysmouse.


And you can always create a new configuration: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO.../x-config.html
