I'm coming to FreeBSD from Slackware, <startx> is what I'm using, the error

I lack the experience or skills base to repair a broken install from the
command line, I do either need the GUI or Midnight Commander. I do, being
retired have the time to keep re-installing to get it right. Whilst I did
get the install right, insofar as I got one of the other window managers
at the beginning of this saga, but since then have not seemed able to get
'X' running. It must be something I am doing during the install, I'll read
the manual again and have more attempts later in the week.
I have no idea what my .xinitrc is!
I had 4.10 in, running 'X' with KDE and reading and sending both Email and
news. However, it was very slow. I had assumed that perhaps 5.3 would be
an improvement, but I can't get it to install... at the moment.
I will get this running!
