I'm new to FreeBSD it comes with a CLI mode not a graphical interface. How can I install GNOME in FreeBSD. Can I install GNOME by downloading its package from a different machine if its possible and also what is the size of GNOME v 2.0.
The ports are available on multiple servers around the world and you should check the handbook for that list. Also, there is a "fastest server" port that will locate that for you. You can check for size and other information before doing anything by looking at http://freshports.org/.
