Default Running gnome-3.24.2 on OpenBSD

Hello the next step what would ask is about Gnome.Before I used KDE .In KDE is easy to install packages and just start KDE
But Gnome make me trouble.Instruction for me is not clear .There are someone who had experience with Gnome .Step by step show hot to start Gnome at OpenBSD 6.2
##################
1.# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-session-2.30.2p3.tgz
2.# pkg_add -i -vv gdm-2.20.11p1.tgz
3.nano /etc/rc.local

Append/modify the following lines in /etc/rc.local:
1
2
3

if [ -x /usr/local/sbin/gdm ]; then
echo -n ' gdm'; (sleep 5; /usr/local/sbin/gdm) &
fi

4.su
# pkg_add -i -vv metacity-2.30.1p1.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-panel-2.30.2p2.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv nautilus-2.30.1p2.tgz


5.There are good chances that if you reboot, xdm is still started, and/or the FVWM window manager is still displaying instead of Gnome Desktop. So do the following :
1

# nano /etc/rc.conf.local

Append/modify the following lines :
1
2
3

xdm_flags=NO
gnome_enable=YES
gdm_enable=YES

If you want, you can now start Gnome by rebooting or typing:
1

$ startx

6.$ su
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-terminal-2.30.2p0.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-control-center-2.30.1p0.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-menus-2.30.2p0.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-settings-daemon-2.30.2p1.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-themes-2.30.2.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-themes-extras-2.22.0p8.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-utils-2.30.0p0.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-applets2-2.30.0p2.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-system-monitor-2.28.1p3.tgz
# pkg_add -i -vv gnome-nettool-2.30.0p0.tgz

7.Finally, reboot and enjoy your Gnome !
1

# reboot


There is any easy way to install Gnome .

The isource of information you used is either dated or from another OS. dbus_daemon is now "messagebus" and gdm is started by pkg_scripts.

One of the good things about OpenBSD is that all changes are documented in
/usr/local/share/doc/pkg-readmes

Here are the insturctions:

It is at the very bottom of the pkg-readme:
Code:
# rcctl disable xenodm

YES works .But please be careful .I thought Gnome didn't works and I click on starting Gnome.Openbsd start running loop.I could not stop it.I update all system.Now works.
This case was because works very slow. I tape starting Gnome.
I have to wait about 3 sec this is delate.I can listen music on Youtube .My speed internet also is slow.
Also open file works very slow.I have strong processor but this is some misunderstanding.

You had just started using GNOME, and its file search daemon is busy indexing your home directory. This causes lots of disk I/O that makes your system less responsive.

Has your experienced with GNOME improved since you last posted?
