    Tutorial : FreeBSD GNOME Installation.

    Hi all.

    if u installed FreeBSD on your laptop or your Desktop system , you need a graphical environment .
    In this tutorial I want to say how to install gnome on FreeBSD.

    I use FreeBSD 9.0 .

    1st , We need Internet connection
    2nd We're going to install packages :
    A)X.org
    Code:
    pkg_add -r xorg
    B) GNOME
    Code:
    pkg_add -r gnome-session
    C)GDM
    Code:
    pkg_add -r gdm
    Optional :

    D) Firefox :
    Code:
    pkg_add -r firefox
    E) sudo
    Code:
    pkg_add -r sudo
    F)Nano
    Code:
    pkg_add -r nano
    G)wget
    Code:
    pkg_add -r wget
    Ok. now we have a FreeBSD with our installed packages. Now you should reboot the system by:

    Code:
    reboot
    Ok. when system booted , you should login to your account (root or non-root).

    and run this command (Advanced) :

    Code:
    vi /etc/rc.conf
    or (Beginner):

    Code:
    nano /etc/rc.conf
    and add these lines to this file :

    Code:
    gnome_enable="YES"
    gdm_enable="YES"
    hald_enable="YES"
    dbus_enable="YES"
    If you want load KLD(s) at startup (Like linux kld) you should add this line (for example i want linux kld) :

    Code:
    linux_load="YES"
    now you must save and exit this file. and do other optional configurations on your FreeBSD.
    then reboot your system and Enjoy the graphical FreeBSD

    If you downloaded the 4GB ISO , you can install packages offline

    I don't get why you have to first reboot to edit rc.conf. You can edit it right ahead and THEN reboot.

    Yes. You can edit rc.conf then reboot.
    Also if you want a GNOME FreeBSD Distro , Try GhostBSD ---> http://ghostbsd.org
