hi Anirban,
first update your ports tree using cvsup.
[cvsup -g -L 2 /etc/ports-supfile this will do it. but ports-supfile might
be somewhere else if u didnt edit then move it under /etc. for this check
then cd to /usr/ports/x11/xorg
# make install clean.
soon u done with this step, move to the last one. select kde or gnome to
install. [up to you which to prefer.]
kde or gnome alsa avaliable in ports. cd to the directory u prefer. then
make install clean again.
edit your xorgconf [accourding to your pc configuration] and xinitrc [exec
reboot, login, startx ;)
hope this will help.
bye ;)
