I am trying to install Gnome through Macports on my MacBook Pro running Lion. When I install it, however, I get many error messages, as described below.
How can I successfully install this software on my MacBook Pro?
Here's what I've tried, and what went wrong:
First of all, I'm new to OS X, worked with Debian, Ubuntu Linux distributions before. I've installed macports on Mac OS X Lion. I started the daemons:
org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist (already started)
After that, I open the X11 console, and manually started the X11 script for starting gnome. I do this, because I want to get the error messages it throws. When I do so, an error like this will be thrown multiple times:
Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!
Window manager warning: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash.
See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Not enough memory)
Feb 18 02:03:51 MacBookPro-h2o.local gnome-session : WARNING: Could not make bus activated clients aware of DISPLAY=/tmp/launch-Wq44Ln/org.x:0 environment variable: Not enough memory
I looked at http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ but do not see how I could change the current issue.
I have 4 GB Memory, 2.3 GB of them are free. Installed also PostgreSQL
$ cat /etc/sysctl.conf
