    FreeBSD 6.1
    ------------------------------------------

    I have installed vmware tools.

    vmware is using vmware svga driver
    when I set it to use i810 driver X don't start

    Error :
    (EE) No devices detected


    I have no problem with i810 driver in linux in real mode.

    Please help.

    To build GNOME from source, use the ports tree:

    # cd /usr/ports/x11/gnome2
    # make install clean


    Why does it still access net?

    Did you install vmware-tools from ports? What are you using vmware for exactly (just curious)?

    Read the manpages for ports(7).

    The FreeBSD Ports Collection offers a simple way for users and adminis-
    trators to install applications. Each port contains any patches neces-
    sary to make the original application source code compile and run on BSD.
    ...
    The Makefile automatically fetches the application source
    code, either from a local disk or via FTP, unpacks it on your system,
    applies the patches, and compiles it.
    An analogy I once read is that the port is a 'skeleton' of what is needed to build the application. The source code still needs to be fetched to build it.

    I want to install beryl on FreeBSD.
    I can't take risk with this system & I am not comfortable with freebsd partition utility.

    I created FreeBSD partition with linux fdisk still I struggle as FreeBSD shows partitions in very different way.


    I have installed vmware-tools manually.
