I think he is referring to: http://www.freebsd.org/ports/gnome.html ..and http://www.freebsd.org/ports/kde.html ..which are generated specifically for the www documentation and contain all ports that apply to each window manager. These ports are also in /usr/ports but are placed in their relative categories. They are not all installed as part of the gnome or kde base systems. You can run something like "make search key=gnome" or "make search key=kde" in /usr/ports to get a list of ports used by gnome/kde. You can replace gnome/kde with any keyword you like to be more specific on your search. -- Nelis Lamprecht PGP: http://www.8ball.co.za/pgp/nelis.key "Unix IS user friendly..
