Gnome 3 doesn't start

Hey there,

i I'm new using FreeBSD which I installed it a few days ago, but it does not start with GNOME 3.

Here is my /etc/fstab

Here is my /etc/rc.conf


Do I have something wrong?

What do you mean? Black screen? Some errors? It starts with KDE?
Or maybe no gdm login screen and FreeBSD starts with command line?
Did you instaled x11/xorg?
Yes, i did. when I installed X11 and Gnome there wasn't any error. FreeBSD starts with command line.
Try to enter
% startx /usr/local/bin/gnome-session
from command line.
And then try to run
# service gdm restart
as root.
Post here if you'll see some errors in output.
Here is some errors when I enter
% startx /usr/local/bin/gnome-session
xinit: giving up
Xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error
xauth: (argv):1: bad display name "AsusLaptop:0" in "remove" command.
Did you installed nvidia driver?
If no, install nvidia-driver-346.96, execute as root
# pkg ins nvidia-driver nvidia-xconfig
When installation will be completed, run (also as root)
# nvidia-xconfig
Then do not forget to add
to /boot/loader.conf

to /etc/rc.conf

After all execute
# reboot

I forgot to say when I enter
Xorg -configurate
My screen become black.

And after I enter # nvidia-xconfig

The output is:

Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
I see a error on /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Fatal server error:
(EE) no screens found(EE)
(EE) server terminated with error (1).
Forget about Gnome for the time being. Make sure Xorg actually works before enabling Gnome.
