Hi Harold,

That should not happen. I assume you ran 'pkg install xorg', which=20
should finish nicely in 1-2 hours once you accept the installation.

If you are facing problems, can you please provide the exact command and=20
errors output ? Can you install anything at all ? The following is a=20
good way to check whether the basic pkg system is okay :

pkg install bash

That will install the bash shell, which you can use as your default=20
shell if you then issue the command :

chsh- s /usr/local/bin/bash

If you cannot install bash, then something is seriously wrong : perhaps=20
your disk is full. Check that with 'df -h'. If you can provide=20
specifics, you will get all the help you need at this forum.
