Actually am new to freebsd and I willing to learn I was tryin to install
gnome2 on one of the test machines and when I try to start it 


With a command startx this came up can any one help coz I ve installed all
what is needed from my poind of view and I even enabled it in etc/rc.conf 



/usr/X11R6/bin/xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name
"" in "list" command

/usr/X11R6/bin/xauth: (stdin):1:  bad display name
"" in "add" command


/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit:  No such file or directory (errno 2):  no server "X"


Use the -- option, or make sure that /usr/X11R6/bin is in your path and

that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server

for your display.  Possible server names include:


    Xorg         X.Org displays


giving up.

/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit:  Connection refused (errno 61):  unable to connect to
X server

/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.

/usr/X11R6/bin/xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name
"" in "remove" command


What should I do?
