I’ve been playing around with FreeBSD for a couple of weeks, well last night I decided to reinstall it and install all apps from it Ports system. If I’m not mistaken, by using Ports, everything is getting compiled from source.
Much earlier today I issued a make install clean from with the gnome2 ports directory. Needless to say many hours later it’s still compiling. The annoying thing about this is that I’m doing this from an SSH session on my laptop. If I knew it was going to take this long I would have started from the console. I’m just really nervous that I may accidentally close out of my session or loose my connection for a spilt second(I’m on wireless).
Update: After what I’m guessing to be around 7 hours worth of compile time, X would not start for me. Well, back to google to start researching the problems.
