That would not explain the error you are seeing.

Could you describe what you did in the install process to install
gnome and X. Did you use dselect or tasksel? IIRC both are offered at
install time. I want to try and recreate what you did to install

While you are at it install x-window-system-core just in case you
don't have the X server installed.

# apt-get install x-window-system-core
