What's not solved? Did something not work? What have you tried? What are the error messages? If what you're seeing is a graphical display with xterm windows and a clock, it seems to me like it's working exactly the way it's supposed to. It just sounds like you didn't finish following along in chapter 5 of the handbook where it explains that you'll want to install a windows manager you can use. As you'll see in the handbook (still chapter 5), the more popular options are KDE and Gnome, but there are lots of others you'll find in your ports tree. You can learn about the ports tree in the handbook. And you'll probably want a display manager too... Yep, the handbook. It's really very well written. HTH, WizLayer -- Life is better with a BSD.
