    Do i have GNOME?


    When I installed slackware it asked me if i wanted to install GNOME, and i selected it and continued, and now that i have a working slackware system, i can't find it, when i load xwmconfig its not there theres kde, and xfce and fluxbox..and ah, i can't remember, but GNOME isn't there, i'm sure i selected it, if it's not there, is it possible to install it from the cd again? or maybe i'm just stupid and don't know how to find it any help apreciated.

    You could install it from cd but I would be pretty hard.. since it doesn't does dependency check, you would need to install package by package.

    My suggestion? Get swaret, configure it (it will take you only a minute) and run "swaret --update && swaret --install gnome".
