Over FreeBSD 10.0 I have installed another operating system , because
after startx , fluxbox did
not start and there is no any desk top environment available as KDE or
Gnome in packages .
>From Linux :
The response is :
ftp.freebsd.org : Name or service not known .
Can not handle "host" cmdline arg 'ftp.freebsd.org' on position 1 ( argc1 )
I tried netbsd , dragonflybsd , openbsd : All of the have responded .
I tried freebsd more than five times , no one of them succeeded .
When www is used instead of ftp , the above results are the similar .
Thank you very much .
