Using FreeBSD since 4.1 most recent 8.2 no problems, now retired 'old  

installed 10.2 release from CD on Intel core i3 boot, sound, video, etc OK
few ports would work, discovered pkg, still few pkg work mostly with core  
dumps etc.
Fresh install (or ten)!
Finally default install, no software added, freebsd-upgrade, install,  
install after boot to:

  root at wills:~ # uname -a
FreeBSD wills 10.3-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p2 #0: Wed May  4  
06:03:51 UT          C 2016 etc...

Same situation, Have X working with icewm (blackbox, fluxbox OK also)  
qtfm, gpicview, xpdf etc OK but dbus errors, core dumps, missing libs.
Whereis fails to find installed software, including system stuff, libs etc  
not found by whereas, or applications.

Basically past doing much reading online/local due illness, home care...

Seems a path related problem? Only change to boot config has been to add  
Automount="YES", that i may retrieve backup data via USB key. dmesg seems  
everything found, enabled hardware wise.
Perhaps I need to do some config for dbus?

Here are a few recent core dumps:

dbus-monitor.core               firefox.core
dbus-send.core                  gedit.core
efreet_desktop_cach.core        gnome-settings-daem.core
enlightenment_filem.core        gnome-shell.core
epiphany.core                   nautilus.core
evince-previewer.core           qtfm.core
evince.core                     totem.core
file-roller.core                xpdf.core

Forums appear offline at present.

Any suggestions, reading matter (simpler the better)!

Enough working to keep me going for a while. Back to poking around folders  
to find things. Enough online documents for now.
