Of course you are right. I wasn't thinking clear with so many hiccups 
during the gnome install. Now 'prt-get depinst --install-scripts gnome' 
is done. But I got stuck with howl.

There is no such script in /etc/rc.d is empty... I found a 
cached backup on Google:

#!/bin/sh # # /etc/rc.d/howl: start/stop howl daemons # case $1 in 
start) /usr/bin/nifd /usr/bin/mDNSResponder -f 
/usr/etc/mDNSResponder.conf ;; stop) killall -q /usr/bin/nifd killall -q 
/usr/bin/mDNSResponder ;; restart) $0 stop sleep 2 $0 start ;; *) echo 
"usage: $0 [start|stop|restart]" ;; esac # End of file

The script points to non-existant directories, so clearly something is 
missing or howl is just obsolete.
