    Hi "lio_013"

    I suggest you install the ports, then recompile gnome2.
    It's probably a dependency problem.

    If you want advice, I advise you to install directly freebsd and then install gnome.

    The problem is that pcbsd is oriented for kde not gnome!

    Did you try the PC-BSD forums? I wonder why you're posting here.
