Hi all,

I blundered - I downloaded the latest ports tarball and did a 'make 
install' in deskutils/conduit. The conduit port asked for a deinstall 
followed by a reinstall in gnome-desktop, which I promptly complied 
with. As was bound to happen, everything in gnome is now 
broken/paralysed. Being a gnomer, I do not want to abandon my gnome 
environment. Just to make sure before attempting recovery, will the 
following 2 steps generally be able to fix things for me :

pkgdb -aF

portupgrade -L /var/gnome2-upgrade-logs/portupgrade-%s::%s.log -l \ 
/root/gnome2-portupgrade-results.txt -vrR -x gnome-desktop gnome-desktop

Thank you and Regards
