thanks Sean, no X doesn't work correctly for me.

thanks Brian, but this freebsd box is my develop system and i have to
work with it and no other OS.

thanks Michael, i compiled X11 and Gnome from ports.

I'm thinking to install everything from the beginning if i can not fix
it in two days.

thank you every body for your answers
