FreeBSD Xorg 7.2 has almost been committed to the FreeBSD ports tree. "Within the next 24 hours, the long-awaited update to the 7.2 windowing system will be committed to the ports tree. This upgrade has been 6 months in the making and would not have been possible without the dedicated work of Florent Thoumie, Dejan Lesjak and many others in our army of developers."

Member since:

had to add a wm to /usr/local/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc
(commenting out twm)
after adding /x11/xinit and some other stuff
my old 'starx ...' or whatever either retried X11R6's X(org) or ran twm otherwise, without running the following,
discovered by much trial and error (pkg_deleted -f /var/db/pkg/xorg (6.9 lots of, before installing xorg)
#xinit /usr/local/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc -- /usr/local/lib/Xorg
^^^^ reason for this post, btw))
however I consider on this box the Xorg upgrade 'done' (I unfortunately for various reasons do not use portupgrade nor any other recc'd tool) and just the ports to bump. I expect to complete the UPDATING instructions smoothly, however taking several months (as I don't have a lot of time to do it all at once)
