Hi
You will need to install xf86-video-sis drivers.

The command for doing it from ports, if you are using 4.0.

Code: Select all

portsnap fetch extract
cd /usr/ports/x11-drivers/xf86-video-sis
make install clean 
If you are using an old version of GhostBSD

Code: Select all

pkg_add -r   xf86-video-sis

That sounds like the problem that I was having. It turned out to be the system having a problem with one of my USB sockets.

Try installing using a different USB socket.
