(no subject) Gnome

I had the same problem. An arrogant person at the freebsd forum said I had a lack of resolving, but I didn't know what he was talking about. Someone said to edit /etc/rc.conf but that didn't help because it was a read only file.
I reinstalled freebsd all over again and that time it worked. You may need to try that. However I haven't yet been able to get it running, and I have the popuplar problem of mouse and keyboard not working with xorg. It's pretty discouraging.
So all I can suggest is installing the operating system again.

Running as root:

    pkg_add -nr gnome2

It works here. Is your ports tree up-to-date?

The sudden sight of me causes panic in the streets. They have
yet to learn - only the savage fears what he does not understand.
