GNOME 2.4 for Debian SID
Posted on: 09/14/2003 03:13 PM

Frederic Peters has released an inofficial port of the GNOME 2.4 desktop for Debian SID (unstable)

Random notes:

- built against XFree86 4.3 from experimental
- not Debian-quality packages
- upgrade fails; need to run apt-get -f install once to correct some
overwriting files
- tries not to diverge from sid packages but:
- librsvg now depends on libcroco (I thought it was necessary)
- libbonobo creates both libbonobo and bonobo-activation packages
- control-center builds fontilus and I put themus in a separate
- sources are available on
but my upload rate is low so I sometimes only uploaded the .diff.gz
and not the upstream .tar.gz
- Gnome 2.4 feels faster on my computer and I'm happy with it

Add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb gnome2.4-sid/
