    I have been trying to get a desktop environment in a jail for the past 2 weeks. I want to run my desktop (kde, openoffice, opera browser, rtorrent) inside a jail.

    I have installed FreeBSD 8.2 release 64 bit by this method:
    http://wiki.freebsd.org/RootOnZFS/GPTZFSBoot

    I then installed x11/xorg and sysutils/ezjail.

    From here, what should I do? Is there a guide anyone recommends?

    I believe you should just install xorg on your machine and ssh -X into your jails.

    There is a utility that can be installed that allows you to run a whole desktop environment in a new window. I don't the name of it at this time.
