okay i've succesfully make gnome started after starttx
command but with this error :
Could not look up internet address for home.This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correct the problem by adding home to the file /etc/hosts
and this's my /etc/hosts
::1 localhost my.domain
127.0.0.1 localhost my.domain
#10.0.0.2 myname.home myname
#10.0.0.2 myfriend.home myfriend
i've replace my.domain
but still receive the same error
my another problem
i want gnome start automaticall every time machine boot ups, so i've edited the /etc/ttys
ttyv8 "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon" xterm off secure
ttyv8 "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure
after that, i've edited .xsession
file in the /root directory
looks like :
xsetroot -solid black &
xset m 4 &
the i restarted my machine .............
then xdm succesfully displayed, so i enter root
in box name and enter "root password"
in password box, then i press enter, BUT the xdm login prompt appear again, i can't entering my gnome desktop, so i try again to enter the root
and the passwd
in the box but i got the same problem
so, i want edit the /etc/ttys (xdm) again to the default setting (off), but i don't know how to do it, cause i can't entering to console or gnome desktop, so what must i do ?
and what is the right value/setting in .xsession
file, so that
can be run automatically when every time my machine boot ups ?
oh yeah, i dislike xdm, so i wanna use gdm but i gdm does not exist in my FreeBSD 5.3 machine, i know it after find it with whereis
command, though i've chosen all FreeBSD 5.3 packages in the installation proccess. i've searched gdm in /usr/local/bin
but not found, also ini /usr/X11R6/share/gnome
and not found too, also in /usr/X11R6/bin/gdm
and still not found. so i try to install it :
but i've received some error messages like this :
oh yeah, so, my questions are :
- how to resolve the /etc/hosts problem ?
- what's the right .xsession setting ? and how to activation it after edited it and please give me an example of your .xsession working file !!
- how to re-edit the /etc/ttys file to default setting after login failed really likes in my case ? (from on to off)
- where is my gdm, though i've chosen all packages in installation proccess ?
- why i got error messages when installing gdm like above ?
- please Stop laughing
and sorry for my poor english
