I am setting a FreeBSD 10.1 (amd64) machine for a company referred to as xyz
in the rest of this message.
This machine is to provide all important services including a mail server and
printing services. The company's mail service is currently hosted by an
external provider, who also looks after DNS.
At installation time, I set the machine name to
When I starting work on setting up a mail server , I thought it would be
better to change the hostname to freebsd10dot1.xyz.com
I did this, and added xyz.freebsd10dot1.amd64 to as an alias to the
::1 and 127.0.0.1 lines in /etc/hosts
When I did this and rebooted, I found that the X server fails to start.
There are some lines in /var/log/Xorg.log complaining about invalid
configuration in xorg.conf.d, but nothing much more in the log except for a few
control characters like Ctrl-O and Ctrl-B
What could be the problem here ? And how do I get the X server to start ?
Thanks for any help &
