|Ximian has packaged the recent GNOME 1.4 beta 1 release called “Oops, We Did it Again.” Read the Gnotices story here. Warning: these may break your system badly!!
Try: deb ftp://ftp.ximian.com/pub/ximian/1.4beta1/distributions/debian unstable main as your apt source line. We’d love to hear of your experiances with this, so post comments below…
Netsnipe (10:12GMT Feb22): I’ve just added a nice little tip for all you cvs GNOME application fans. Netsnipe’s Tip: Well I’ve been one of the cvs bleeding-edge addicts on #debian, so if there’s a cvs deb FTP server around, it’s likely that I’m using it = ) (except Gnome1.4beta from Ximian may seems a little too foolhardy even for me at this stage). One key tool that any GNOME beta tester should be aware about, is oaf-slay, and this tool will come very handy later on. If any rather unstable betas that you’re using which are using the Oaf libraries crashes and leave a tonnes of threads laying around. su to a termial and run “oaf-slay”. Make you try to save any work in any GNOME applications that may be still running before trying this. This program WILL ruthlessly terminate any programs that use the lib-oaf0 libraries and they currently include eog, Evolution, gnome-gv and Nautilus. Applications that rely on bonobo and libgtkhtml7 may also be at risk from the warth oaf-slay. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Too bad not all GNOME stuff works so ruthlessly well as oaf-slay = P
