Default Can't start KDE desktop in FreeBSD

hi all,

i just finished a clean install of freebsd, then did KDE via the portupgrade method.

then i edited my .xinitrc file to start kde.

however, when i run startx, it opens up and then exits, citing a couple errors.

with the help of this thread: http://www.bsdforums.org/forums/arc...hp/t-27464.html

i was able to fix a couple of the issues. however, three remain:

1) (EE) Unable to locate/open config file
2) (EE) Failed to load module "vmware" (module does not exist, 0)
3) (EE) Failed to load module "fbdev" (module does not extis, 0)

there is no xorg.conf file in etc/X11. any idea why that is? did something go wrong with my install?

is there a way to generate a basic one?

i'm running FreeBSD 7.1 or whatever the latest stable is in vmware workstation 6.
