 Too many dependencies not found installing gnome-2.6.0
Author: Philip Tellis 
Date:   06-04-04 14:01

I'm trying to install gnome-2.6.0 using the following command:
pkg_add -r http://www.marcuscom.com/tb/packages/4.9-GNOME-2.6/All/gnome2-2.6.0.tgz
and I get several errors saying:
pkg_add of dependency 'xxxxxxx' failed!

where xxxxxxx is the package name (there are many of them).

This is my first time ever using FreeBSD, so if someone could tell me what to do, that would be cool. Pointing me to documentation will be even cooler. I've been through the ports/packages section of the FreeBSD manual and it wasn't of much help in this instance. I'm not trying to install from source, I'd like to get a prebuilt binary package.

Thanks,

Philip

step 1 is to pkg_add -r portupgrade

step 2 is to run pkgdb -F
(this might require answering a lot of questions, then again maybe not. It depends on how mismatched the packages on your system are when you run it.)

step 3 is to run portinstall -P gnome

step 4 is to run portinstall -P gnumeric

step 5 is to run portinstall -P AbiWord

etc.
