If gnome is installed and configured , all you need is #startx or #gdm
If gdm doesn=92t give you gnome login screen but instead gives you an X
error....
You need to edit the file XF86Config (usualy /etc/X11/XF86Config)
Or use one of the Xconfigurators (try /stand/sysinstall on the post =
config
menu)

If the config is good ..... maybe you should try to install gnome again?
#cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/gnome2
#make install clean

Hope this helps :)
