| apt-get install gnome installs gnome, but no xserver-common or
| xserver-xfree86. gnome is no big use without an xserver, is it?
| (unless, of course, you have an xterm farm).
If you are using apt-get instead of tasksel, aptitude or dselect, you
get what you ask for.
| installing the xserver packages did not pull xfonts-base onto the
| system, so startx/xdm failed with "could not open default font
| 'fixed'". that's also not an easy problem to get around for people who
| don't know the field that well...
Then install the x-window-system package.
