Default Weird PKG_ADD error


I am not having any luck installing SMB server on my machine. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? The machine is OpenBSD 5.7 on
amd64 hardware/installation

FAQ tells me that I should check the versions which I believe to be the same.

FAQ: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq15.html#PkgFAQ

Installed from here: http://mirror.esc7.net/pub/OpenBSD/5.../install57.iso

Trying to install samba from here:

Here is a screenshot of the errors

Thanks in advance

"library X11.16.0 not found"

It looks like you need the xorg file sets. Although OpenBSD will run without Xorg, many packages are dependent on the xorg libraries.

Generally speaking, you should install the X sets these days even if you don't think you will use them directly.
This is why.

You do not need to re-install. The X sets can be added after-the-fact. See FAQ 4.11
