    I have a problem with xorg, I installed nvidia drivers, but there is no /etc/x11/xorg.conf, and Xorg -configure gives me error "No devices to configure. Configuration failed.

    Can you show me your /var/log/xorg.0.log file paste it in http://pastebin.com/ and give me the url.
    maybe your card is not support By xorg.

    My personal experience since XOrg 7.2 that X server just works. You do not need xorg.conf file any more. If you do (like me) on one of my laptops then.
    Code:
    # X -configure  (this creates /root/xorg.conf.new file)
    # X -config /root/xorg.conf.new (use full path to probe file)
    # mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf (of everything is Ok)
    

    IF X -config fails read the log file for clues. Usual suspects
    are refreshing rates, and more recently default depth and mode lines. Put default depth to no more than 32.

    Here it is http://pastebin.com/m20a77c0c
    Besides that what's with USB storage device
    Code:
    uhub4: device problem (IOERROR), disabling port8

    Is it normal after fresh install, and if so, how can I mount my USB device
    I tried already
    Code:
    mount /dev/da2s1 /mnt/usb
    mount -t msdos /dev/da2s1 /mnt/usb 
    mount -t msdosfs /dev/da2s1 /mnt/usb
    mount -t msdosfs -o -m=644,-M=755 /dev/da2s1 /mnt/usb
    
    without success.

    Try using a different USB port. Have a tail -f /var/log/messages running and stick it in. Look at what the log says.

    I reinstall the whole system, so I can't check that anymore, but I think it was -2. I did change the security level, so I think that what it was.
    I was able to configure xorg finally, but it's so slow, and usb mouse doesn't work.
    Thanks for your help

    As it seems you are running the binary nvidia driver, IMHO your configuration is not correct.
    For example, from what I can recall from my memory, dri should be removed from the module section.
    You may want to check the page in the nvidia docs about manually configuring xorg (try under /usr/local/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0) or install and run x11/nvidia-xconfig from ports.
    Check also the output of $ glxinfo | grep vendor, it should always report "NVIDIA Corporation".

    Yes, x11/nvidia-xconfig, x11/nvidia-settings already installed. Also made some changes to xorg.conf and it works, mouse problem solved by adding hald_enable="YES" and dbus_enable="YES" to rc.conf. So far it's all good.

    Thank you for help
