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 

   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 
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
