"Oops, an error occurred" is known as the GNOME 'fail whale'.  It could
happen also on GNU/Linux for such a trivial reasons as CUPS not running.

I wouldn't assume *yet* that GNOME is completely useless on kFreeBSD
specifically.  Otherwise I'm pretty sure we want to fix this, rather
than leave it uninstallable.

Nobody has a choice currently :P

And there would likely be some kFreeBSD GNOME users upgrading from
squeeze to wheezy...
