Can you please post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list? Did you do
an "apt-get update" before running the above command?

education-desktop-gnome and education-tasks are build from the same source
package, so there must be something wrong with your apt sources (or with the
apt repository).

What I have done is:

 o I installed a Tjener (+ workstation role) with desktop=gnome
 o I found a system without GDM installed, but with KDM installed, but KDM did
   not start
 o I then edited apt's sources.list (see above) as I would do on any Debian
   system (get rid of the CD, install from web)
 o then I ran ,,apt-get install education-desktop-gnome''

Obviously, education-tasks (=0.852~svn72937) got installed from CD, but its version is new than the education-tasks (=0.851) in any of the Debian archives listed in sources.list. Refer to this:

So there were basically two problems:

  o desktop=gnome on install failed
  o the packages on the Debian Edu CD are newer than packages in the archives
    that the default source.list file of Skolelinux contains.

Mike
