I've no idea if PCBSD will package it in their (your?) manner; my guess is that it may be added much later, but it might not be at all. This is pure speculation on my part.
Gnome 2.10 runs on FreeBSD 5.4 just fine, though, so it can be added using the usual pkg_add command. All of the libraries are up-to-date, so there should be no issues. You'll might have to change some of the configuration files to load it when you start x.
Sorry if there was confusion!
... I'm a newbie then I'm pretty sure that I'm not able to install gnome !! Anyway is a good thing if someone can package the gnome interface using .PBI manager. Using the PBI manager all can install everything ... newbie like me too
Anyway .. PCBSD is really a great alternative to MS Windows world. IS rock solid, is easy to install and, the biggest thing is, that is easy to install programs.
I really hope Gnome interface, driver, etc. can be installed via .PBI package. If this can be do... PCBSD will become REALLY REALLY REALLY STRONG a REAL alternative !!
PS. Sorry for my english.
