two days ago I installed a fresh NetBSD 1.6 (i386) on a machine right
here. After having installed some base packets, I wanted to install and
test the Gnome2-Packets which are included in the pkgsrc-collection.
I installed gnome-session (which is 2.0.8, I think) and other required
packets from /usr/pkgsrc/x11 .
My .xinitrc file contains just one line: "exec gnome2-session".
After executing 'startx' XFree starts and the gnome2-logo appears on my
screen - but nothing else happens. This means I just have the gnome logo
but the gnome-desktop and other things are not started - I cannot do
I know this is very few information, but I do not have much more output
(that is my problem). I tried to get some more information with "X >
/dev/null 2>&1 ..." and something like that, but it was not very useful.
Does anybody know this problem?
Any ideas how I could get more output?
Did I do something wrong/missing?
Thanks in advance,
