Thumbs down Gnome issues in OpenBSD 4.2

Hi,

I've installed OpenBSD 4.2 on my rig,

I installed Gnome by using the command:-




Code:
pkg_add   ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/4.2/packages/i386/gnome-desktop-2.18.2p0.tgz
And

Code:
pkg_add   ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/4.2/packages/i386/gnome-session-2.18.2p0.tgz
>>>>>>>>>


When I try to open gnome from CLI using "gnome-session" , I get a error message :-
Code:

Code:
Gnome-Session Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display

So I tried:-



Code:
#echo $DISPLAY
And

Code:
#export DISPLAY=:0.0
And

Code:
#exec gnome-session >> /root/.Xinitrc.conf
But I still get the same error as mentioned above even after trying all the 3 commands mentioned above, I get the same problems when trying form Xterm.
