Problem on installing Gnome
I followed "The GNOME Configuration HOWTO"
installing Gnome. Steps writen there went though w/o problem until upto;
Code Listing 2.7: Adding hald and avahi-dnsconfd to the default runlevel
# /etc/init.d/hald start
I failed to find "hald" but "hald.sh" instead. I considered they were the same "sh-script" and hit [ENTER]. Following was displayed on the screen;
Then my nightmare came again. Some commands can't be found. They were on LV
Shunting down the Logical Volume Manager
Shunting down Logical Volume : /dev/vg/usr
Shunting down Logical Volume : /dev/vg/home
Shunting down Logical Volume : /dev/vg/opt
Shunting down Logical Volume : /dev/vg/var
Shunting down Logical Volume : /dev/vg/tmp
Shunting down Volume Group : vg ...
Finished Shutting down the Logical Volume Manager
Remounting remaining file systems readonly
# rc-update add hald default # rc-update add hald.sh default Then I ran
# vgchange -a y
.... something locked (sorry I can't recall exactly)
I can't proceed further and ran;
# shutdown -r now
text scrolling started ending at - blinking.
Pressed "reset" to restart Gentoo. On booting there was no error/complaint displayed. Gentoo started with login prompted up properly.
X window started.
Do I need to reinstall Gnome?
(remark: installed "gnome-light")
If YES how to remove Gnome, the unfinished package?
How to overcome the problem mentioned? I must run the command line in question on 2nd installation of Gnome.
Furthermore I forgot mentioning on running;
# rc-update del famd default
(Code Listing 2.6: Switching to gamin)
fam can't be found.
