Be sure you have a completely fresh build/installworld and
fresh ports and dfports, then deinstall the dependant ports (in
imake) and rebuild and reinstall.
Yeah... I installed from the DragonFly snapshot and then have been
ever since. Is there any other step I should take to make sure I do
I can't build the kernel today either.
It took a lot of work, er, hacking, to get XFree86 to compile. If
all of that there are still problems, post the tail end of the
I don't even see the XFree86-Server port... just libs. I am doing
cvs update -dP to get that.
KDE and Gnome are another deal entirely... they would require a

Yep. I don't really have the time or interest to work on GNOME but I

I can do for KDE. Its probably not going to be a one-man job in the
long run though.
