That should not happen. I assume you ran 'pkg install xorg', which
should finish nicely in 1-2 hours once you accept the installation.
If you are facing problems, can you please provide the exact command and
errors output ? Can you install anything at all ? The following is a
good way to check whether the basic pkg system is okay :
pkg install bash
That will install the bash shell, which you can use as your default
shell if you then issue the command :
chsh- s /usr/local/bin/bash
If you cannot install bash, then something is seriously wrong : perhaps
your disk is full. Check that with 'df -h'. If you can provide
specifics, you will get all the help you need at this forum.
