I recently installed FreeBSD 9-Release and I want to install Gnome 3 after having installed marcuscom ports. However after a long time, it stops with an error in libgdata.

How can I solve this problem to install Gnome Shell on FreeBSD 9?

Can you actually include the error message? That would probably help a lot – Michael Mrozek Jan 16 '12 at 17:32

Two ways: The first one is to debug it yourself. The second one is to report a bug on the port site. Gnome is fairly well supported by the FreeBSD team. Make sure you include as much information as possible in the bug report -- the error message sure would help!
