Come avete notato i packages ufficiali di Gnome2.8 tardano ad
<BR>arrivare e chissÃ se arriveranno mai:
<BR>GNOME 2.8? I´m not aware of too many distributions that contain that.
<BR>Anyway, suffice to say the jury is still out. Since GNOME 1.4 I´ve felt
<BR>that GNOME is going in a direction that doesn´t fit well with Slackware´s
<BR>goals, and for at least as long I´ve considered removing it completely and
<BR>taking whatever flames I get for that decision. Right now, I think
<BR>removing it would be the best thing for Slackware as it´s become a
<BR>maintainance nightmare (unlike nearly every other ./configure´ed source,
<BR>GNOME doesn´t build into packages easily with DESTDIR).
<BR>Not what you wanted to hear, I´m sure, but I do believe it would be best
<BR>to let Dropline produce Slackware´s GNOME and quit wasting my own time
<BR>with it. Probably 1/3 of developement time here is used maintaining
<BR>GNOME, and *most* of the bug reports I get have something to do with GNOME
<BR>(and aren´t bugs I caused, or can fix). KDE, on the other hand, tends to
<BR>build using the existing build scripts with no changes at all. I can
<BR>start the build and come back to finished packages in a few hours. A
<BR>GNOME update usually takes at least a week of manual labor, and another
<BR>week of cleaning up broken things. It´s been a long time (like I said,
<BR>around GNOME 1.4), since I´ve felt the effort was worth the return.
