Hi everybody ,

This is Dhanesh , I m a newbe to FreeBsd , I had a intel p4 box with FreeBSD-6.1 Os with Gnome 2.18. installed and , this desktop working fine for last 2 months . Mean while I tried to install OpenOffice from ports collection for this box , but it is asking for an upgrade of Xorg libraries , so I followed the /usr/ports/UPDATING procedure line by line ,, every thing went fine at the stage where I reached

# portupgrade -aP ( while runnig this command about an hour or more ) ther HAPPENED a power failure , after this the m/c restarted and the Desktop environment lost for ever , Its asking for command login without Desktop GUI login , ther is an error message its showing gdm_server_spawn : Xserver not found : /usr/X11R6/bin/X : 0 -audit /var/gdm/: 0.Xauth -nolisten tcp vt9 Failed to start X server several times in a short time period , disabling display:0

I tried to continue the portupgrade -aP command again but its showing errors , Stale dependency : at-spi-1.18.1_1 ----> xmlcatmgr-2.2 -- manually run 'pkgdb -F' to fix , or specify -0 to force

asking  pkgdb  -F  to  run

# pkgdb -F  I executed but  its showing some

Duplicated origin : multimedia/gstreamer -gstreamer-0.10.12 gstreamer80-0.8.12_2
Unregister any of them ?[no]

I enter no for  3/4  times for some duplicate origins

Then it asking for Stale dependency at-spi-1.18.1_1 -->xmlcatmgr-2.2 (textproc/xmlcatmgr) :

Install stale dependency ?[yes]  y
but its failed showing that        stop in /usr/ports/textproc/xmlcatmgr
(I tried to to deinstall and make reinstall textproc/xmlcatmgr many times it also failed all the times )

Here I requesting  anyone  of you to help me to

 1    provide the method  to retrive the Desktop   environment ?  OR

2 Other wise how I can remove all the the things related to xserver (so that I have to install the Gnome 2.18 again as I did was portinstall /usr/ports/x11/gnome2 )

thanks in advance
