Re: how to install gnome ?

Hum. In fact, there is no gnome-session binary package. So, I pkg_added a whole bunch of things ( gdm, gnome-desktop, gnome-menu, gnome-panel, etc. ). But still no gnome-session.
Well, i can try to build the rest from pkgsrc2006Q3, but if you say that they are broken on dragonfly...

I was wondering how to install gnome from the binary set. I looked at
the packages that have just been uploaded in the test repository, but
there is no package called gnome or gnome-base.
So, with the binary set of packages, how can I do ?
I've seen that there has been a question like that on the list a couple
of weeks ago ( 07 Aug 2006 ), but no clear answer ( well, no clear
enough for me, at least ).
Thank you.

Set PKG_PATH to 'ftp://packages.stura.uni-rostock.de/pkgsrc-current/DragonFly/1.6.0-RELEASE/i386/All'

And pkg_add all the dependencies listed here:


You can cut-and-paste yourself a list of pkg_add commands.  I don't know
if every one of those utilities will be present as a prebuilt binary, but
probably most of them.

As Petr said, gnome-session may be a good start, and then pick up what's
missing as above.
