In debian, you can install every package with the apt-get command. The command finds all dependencies automatically.

To find a special package, in you case the gnome packages, type this on the commandline:

apt-cache search gnome

Then install all packages you want to install with:

apt-get install [PACKAGENAME]

Where you replace [PACKAGENAME] with the name of the package, if you want to install more then one package, you can add them with spaces.

Example:

apt-get install package1 package 2 pachkage3

All installation commands must be issued as root user, so either login as root or switch with the command "su" to root.

Code:

package gnome is not available, but is reffered to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E:Package gnome has no installation candidate

it says that when i use the command
Code:

apt-get install gnome
i did insert the 1st cd into the cdrom drive!

do i have to mount the cdrom drive? how do i do that?

Did you run
Code:

apt-cache search gnome
before, as Till suggested? This will show all Gnome-related packages, and from that list you can pick the packages you want.

Had the same problem, if you didn't fix it yet here is what I did:

First, verify /etc/apt/sources.list. Could use apt-spy / netselect-apt to know fastest apt mirror

apt-get install install x-window-system

Once X installed proceed with gnome, following packages are minimum but gives you gnome gui based interface... so on it's easier to add other packages from synaptic.

apt-get install gnome-core gdm synaptic

Will Gnome break Ispconfig? Can i install samba server?
 
Hello!

Will in any way Gnome installation break Ispconfig? I followed The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1) by Falko.

Can i also install Samba Server for Windows access, without breaking ispconfig?

Thanx
