    Hi all. I'm trying figure out why my X does not work. I've red X11Configuration handbook session, I started to install xorg package through "pkg_add -r xorg" but this issue showed up when I try to "startx":

    Code:
    xinit: No such file or directory: no server /usr/local/bin/X in PATH  (in effects, no X binary has installed in that path)
    
    xinit: no such process server error
    
    During pkg_add -r xorg I've noticed that a lot of package was not being installed for some reasons, so I dont know what to proceed now. Any idea?

    Thanks

    Yeah, fix those errors. Your install is only half done. Hence the missing files.

    You don't even have xorg-server, so fix the problems as advised before.

    By now, I'm trying to carry out a fresh installation throughout xorg source, seems that xorg-server is being installed now and other related pkg such as HAL . I dont know why "pkg_add -r xorgs" didnt work at all.. "make install" is currenlty running, at the end I will know if it has worked for me.

    Which is why it's important to take note of error messages. You said:

    But you didn't give us any error messages, and I'm not quite those those error messages would have given the reason.

    Ok Adam, I'm agree with you, but I lost those error messages, so for me is quite impossible to remind them.

    Ok guys, xorgs port (re)installing has gone fine, now it loads with no issue... Move forward to gnome2 installation.

    Thanks
