Sorry for bothering this mailing list, but I realy need some help..
I find awsome screenshots from FreeBSD on various sites on the net, but on my comp,
the only thing I see is a black screen with some white text on it, and:

I just tested some commands on random, and found that "info" show some kind of list with information on each "something"..

How do I enter some kind of interface, or desktop, like on the screenshots? Is there a web-site or enything with tutorials explaining how to do all this..

I was thinking about setting up a FTP and Apache server +mail maybe..
But now when I see this black screen and don't have a clue on what to do, or how to do enything..
I feel the hope is dripping into the sink!

Please help me somehow, with tutorials and important information for starters..

Thanks a lot..  Ivan S. - Norway


Do you have access to a web browser to view the handbook?

If not you can install a good text based one until you install
your graphical user interface.

/usr/local/bin/lynx file:///usr/share/doc/en/books/handbook/index.html

If this does not work then do the following

su - root
cd /usr/ports/www/lynx
make install clean
/usr/local/bin/lynx file:///usr/share/doc/en/books/handbook/index.html

This should let you view the English version of the hanbook
