Hi All,

I am trying to setup GUI for FreeBSD which is installed on AMD Myrtle board,but no luck.

I tried all the possible ways which is mentioned in official docs but no luck.

https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/x11-wm.html

Please let me know if anything else required to debug or to identify root cause.

Please share steps to install GUI if some tried and succeeded in AMD Myrtle board.

Thanks in advance.

At the very least vesa(4) should work, it's not going to perform very good but it should work nonetheless.

Can you post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to Pastebin (or a similar service)? You may find misc/pastebinit useful for this.

Remove any and all xorg.conf files you created. It's not needed, Xorg does a fairly good job automatically detecting drivers and such. There's rarely a need to create one these days.

No manual configuration on xorg.conf
