Keeps looping back to login screen

Just when I thought I had everything working.

I used this video as a guide

How-to install freeBSD 10.1 Plus the mate desktop and basic applications

Everything seemed to be working. I logged in as myself once, logged out, then logged in as root, and logged out.

Now, whenever I try to log in, the screen blinks, acts like it's going to log me in, then I am sent back to the login screen. This occurs whether I try to log in as myself, or root.

I am sure I have the name and password correct. If I try to log in with bad name, or password, the system stays where it is and beeps. When I use a correct login, it's very different.

For a while, I was getting a message about a zero length DMA string. It is hard to read the screen because it's only there for an instant.

I commented out slim_enable in rc.conf. That way I can, at least, log in.

I try running xinit at the command line, and it almost works. I can see the desktop for an instant. Then everything crashes. Oddly, this was working fine before.

Here is the tail end of my Xorg.0.log file
Code:
[   178.450] (EE) Segmentation fault at address 0x80dbdfa78
[   178.450] (EE)
Fatal server error:
[   178.450] (EE) Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting
[   178.450] (EE)
[   178.450] (EE)
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
    at http://wiki.x.org
for help.
[   178.450] (EE) Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
[   178.450] (EE)
[   178.501] (EE) Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
My .xinitrc files just have "exec mate-session" with no quotes.
Here is my rc.conf file
Code:
hostname="ash"
ifconfig_nfe0="inet 192.168.1.107 netmask 0xffffff00"
defaultrouter="192.168.1.1"
sshd_enable="YES"
mouse_enable="YES"
# slim_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES"
# Set dumpdev to "AUTO" to enable crash dumps, "NO" to disable
dumpdev="AUTO"
I also get a lot of these errors on the screen:
Code:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting.
. . .
Fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.
This really sucks. The system was working great.

Maybe it's a bug?

I have NVidia graphics. Seems that FreeBSD has issues with that.

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=195781

I am new to FreeBSD. I am not really sure which version of xorg I am using, or which Nvidia graphics chip I have.
That driver is for very old (legacy) nVidia GPUs, but you really need to know which nVidia GPU you are running in order to install the proper drivers. You can use the following commands to determine that:

% lshw
% lspci -vvv
% egrep NVIDIA /var/log/Xorg.0.log

That's your GPU (embedded) and it seems that you are running an nVidia motherboard. If this one x11/nvidia-driver-173 does not work, you can use x11/nvidia-driver-304 or x11/nvidia-driver.

XFCE4 works fine. Could it still be a driver issue?

Lumina-DE does not work.
