X.Org form ports works fine with cirrus driver, but starts in 800×600 only. Small tweak to configuration file is needed to run X in higher resolutions.
Install X.Org and drivers
First install xorg, xf86-video-cirrus and xf86-input-keyboard ports.
DBus and HAL
Installing DBus and HAL allow X Server to guess hardware configuration and work without any configuration file.
If your console get flooded by messages like this after enabling HAL:
acd0: FAILURE - unknown CMD (0x03) ILLEGAL REQUEST asc=0x20 ascq=0x00
disable CD-ROM polling in HAL with command:
# hal-disable-polling --device /dev/acd0
Automatically configured X-Window starts in resolution as small as 800×600.
Create xorg.conf.new skeleton with:
# X -configure
Add those settings to get more then 800×600:
HorizSync 31.5 - 48.5
VertRefresh 50.0 - 90.0
If you want to set specific resolution (1024×768 in this example) use:
Testing X.Org setup
To test your setup run:
# X -config xorg.conf.new
Finally move xorg.conf.new to xorg.conf:
# mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Now X.Org is configured. Login as plain user and run startx to start X-Window session.
