This is a test installation . Therefore installation of all the packages
is a testing step .
Such a test will show installability of packages and missing parts if any ,
conflicts . Therefore package selection process rules may be adjusted
After marking selected packages I inspected every category list toward
backward to see whether a last selection reverted a previously
marked selection . Such a mark erasing did not occurred .
Marking is able to select dependencies but at present it is not de-select
conflicting selections .
Another reason is that I am writing a multimedia information management
system since 1986
and it is continuation of my PhD thesis subject . Concepts coverage
is vast and I am studying every possible information sources one by one to
learn at least their main ideas . This part is for me .

After installation , FreeBSD boots in terminal mode . In this first boot , I
gnome_enable=¨YES¨ into rc.conf and re-booted .
