(lower than 3.3).
XFree86 port from
/usr/ports/x11/XFree86 already have
most recent XFree86 version,
so it will work, if you install XFree86
from this port.
XFree86 version shipped with the latest FreeBSD distribution should
work too (check XFree86 version number not less than 3.3 first).
/usr/ports/russian/X.languagedirectory and say
# make all installthere. This port install latest version of KOI8-R fonts. XFree86 3.3 already have some KOI8-R fonts, but this ones scaled better.

following lines must be before any other
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/misc" FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/75dpi" FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/100dpi"
If you use high resolution video mode, swap 75 dpi and 100 dpi lines.
XkbKeymap "xfree86(ru)"line into
"Keyboard"section in your
/etc/XF86Config, also make sure that
XkbDisableis turned off (commented out) there.
