Re: Installing Gnome on OpenBSD (i386)
Based on my attempt last night, I'm thinking gnome-core and gnome-session are mutually exclusive. Installing one prevents the install of the other. Am I wrong about this? If not, what is the difference in the packages? Should I be seeing "Unknown command" after each successfully completed FTP command? What am I missing?
Also, it appears (again, from my limited trials), that all gnome packages must be added within the same pkg_add statement in order for a successful install to result. I had significant problems regarding dependencies by adding some of the packages individually and did not get a successful install.
I'm going to give the package install route another try tonight (any advice is helpful) and if that doesn't work, I'll give the ports tree a go.

For Gnome 2 the "gnome-session" package is the one you want. By
installing that via FTP as Peter described, you'll get a "basic load" of
