    Hi all!

    I came across the Warden port (http://www.freshports.org/sysutils/warden/) and was wondering if it works on xorg + xfce in FreeBSD.

    Since it was designed for PC-BSD I'm not sure. I think it should because PC-BSD is based on FreeBSD but I could be wrong. :)

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks in advance.

    If it's available as a FreeBSD port, it works on FreeBSD.

    Sometimes FreeBSD ports don't have front-ends but ok, makes sense to me.
    Thanks for the reply!

    Well, as I feared, after compiling this port I realized there isn't a front-end.
    It is made for PC-BSD.. :(

    I can probably run it in a terminal but this isn't what I was looking for then.
    Or am I missing something?

    It seems to work! :)
    Just got to find a way to put it in the Apps Menu but that won't be hard.
    Thanks very much!
