FVWM95 in FreeBSD 2.2

I'm fairly new at Unix systems and X windows. I try and load FVWM95 as the root user inside FreeBSD 2.2. Then I get the error "can't open display". If I try and load it in X11 then I get the message "another WM already running". So do I load it in X windows or the regular prompt? And if so how? Thanks - Jason

This is a LINUX forum, but since you asked....
When you start X, you always have some Window Manager running -
FVWM is the default.  I don't know where FreeBSD keeps it's
xinitrc, but I'd assume it's in /usr/lib/X11/xinit or there-
abouts.  Do a "locate xinitrc" or "find / -name xinitrc -print"
Then edit that sucker to launch FVWM-95 instead of FVWM (or
whatever it's set at now.)
