1.5 Installing the GNOME Desktop Without the Installer


How do I install the GNOME 2.0 Desktop without the GUI installer? 


Run the alternative text-based install script. To do this you must first unpack the tar file to create a GNOME directory in your current directory. Then run the script which corresponds to your system architecture:  

SPARC Architecture Edition: ./GNOME/sparc/pkgs/install

x86: Architecture Edition: ./GNOME/i386/pkgs/install
