X-window

satimis
Hi folks,

I'm running OpenBSD 4.0 amd64 with FVWM desktop.  I start X-window occasionally for Internet bowsing on GUI browser as I run this box as server.  X-window is not properly configured leaving a dark column of 1.5" wide on each side of the screen.  I can't find /etc/X11/X11R6/xorg.conf.


$ ls /etc/X11/      
app-defaults lbxproxy     rc.xprint    twm          xinit        xserver
fs           proxymngr    rstart       xdm          xkb          xsm


$ ls /etc/X11/xkb/                                                      
README              compiled            keymap              symbols.dir
README.config       geometry            keymap.dir          types
README.enhancing    geometry.dir        rules               types.dir
compat              keycodes            semantics           xkbcomp
compat.dir          keycodes.dir        symbols


I read README.config.  Its content looks somewhat similar to xorg.conf but without screen section.

Please advise how to config the X server.  TIA

Hi:
  I had this problem with my LCD display (though only one side /and/ I
had a xorg.conf).  Pushing the auto-adjust on the monitor put
everything right.

  You gotta love accidental button pushes that fix problems ;)

best regards,
Reid
