I am looking for help getting Gnome running on a FreeBSD VM that I am setting up.
Presently when I log in, it takes me right to a console prompt for logging in instead of a GUI. If I log in as root and type "gdm" this is what I get:
** (gdm): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.DisplayManager ** (gdm): WARNING **: Could not acquire name; bailing out
I have added the following, as root, to the /etc/rc.conf file:
gnome_enable=”YES” hald_enable=”YES” gdm_enable=”YES” dbus_enable=”YES”
I also added the following line to /etc/fstab:
proc /proc procfs rw 0 0
What am I doing wrong? If I type
startx I can get to a screen with xterm windows, and it seems like my mouse works there.
