 XFree86 = trouble =/

    I've been having trouble with XFree86 3.3.6 on FreeBSD 4.3 recently.
Below is the error log I received when entering the command startx. I hope
someone can help. I looked this problem up on the net but the only
suggestion I could find to fix this problem was to disable the kernel
security - I have tried this and have had no luck.

 XFree86 = trouble =/
I beleive I had this problem and some others. I ran /stand/systintall
and selected the medium security policy and that fixed part of my problems.
I also had to create a .fvwm2rc file to get fvwm2 to start.

Did you reboot after making the change?

you are actually runnign 4.0.3
