Installing Warden on FreeBSD 8.2

Postby r00t » 26 Oct 2011, 15:03

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?

The PCBSD page on Warden shows how to run the GUI on FreeBSD. (Untested by me.)

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!
