I am very new to Freebsd so this might be a dumb
question, but I can't 
an answer through FAQ..


I used the command "make install clean" to install
some ported 
and the installs went off without a hitch and reported
is that I can't find the locations of the installed
applications or the
executables for the apps to run them.What am I missing

Normally the instaled binary of the applications are
in /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, /usr/X11R6/bin...

If the applications has been succesfully instaled via
ports, type whereis application-name, and it will show
you the place. For example, previous to the
instalation, if you type whereis xmms, it will just
show you /usr/ports/chinese/xmms. After the
instalation, typieng the same, whereis xmms, it will
show you something like that.

bash-2.05b$ whereis xmms
xmms: /usr/X11R6/bin/xmms
/usr/X11R6/man/man1/xmms.1.gz /usr/ports/chinese/xmms

If you have /usr/X11R6/bin in your path, (echo $PATH
will show it) just typing xmms in a terminal will run
the application.

Thank you in advance.
