    Gnome 2 troubles solved
    Submitted by Johannes on Sunday, November 24, 2002 – 12:53
    GNOMEThe recent Gnome 2 breakage in sid has been solved. After a short debate in which several participants questioned the reasonability of including packages from the Gnome 2.1 development branch into Debian, Takuo KITAME uploaded fixed bonobo activation packages, which revert to upstream’s stable version 1.0.3, and carry an epoch to force upgrading from the broken 2.0 packages. A number of Gnome 2.1 packages still remain in Sid, a fact which does not amuse the Gnome Release Manager, Jeff Waugh.

    Subject: Gnome 2.1 is a development branch

    Gnome 2.1 is a development branch (like the 2.5 kernel), not meant for distributions or end-users. Debian “unstable” is (for the most part, at least) meant for testing packages for inclusion into testing and eventually stable Debian releases, not for debugging upstream development snapshots. For developers who are involved in testing the Gnome 2.1 branch, jhbuild and GARNOME (and several similar scripts) provide an easy way to install it and even create .debs.

    I don’t think gnome 2.0 sould be considered stable…
    also many of the main programs still don’t use gtk2

    anyway i’ve been using it for a wile and i think it’s great
    – can’t wait for the 2.2 version which should be more complete

    BTW did anybody manage to run galeon-snapshot?
