I am running FreeBSD-2.1.5 on Intel platform- stand alone. I can get the 
window manager up but it tries to bring up Xwindows but aborts with the 
folloWing message:
xterm:error 23:errorno 25: Inappropriate ioctl for device
and repeats this message for login and a second xterm.
I cannot find a related error message in XErrors. I have tried every 
applicable server from mono to svga and on another monitor. Same result.
ET4000 card with 1 meg and generic (clone) monitor. Tried today on a NEC 
5FG with same result. The attached dmesg.log sets out the hardware and 
interrupts. Took the tape out of the kernel to clear ira 2 and 9, but 
same result. Any help would be appreciated. Regards.
