Gdesklets
 
Has anyone been successful installing gdesklets regarding Fedora 4? I tried installing it regarding my last install but failed. Forget the error but getting ready to try again.

If so how is the mem and cpu usage?

lol.... thats so funny cause I'm attmepting to install it now...
I seem to have a g++ error; I'm working on fixing it now.

I'll let you know how i make out.

ok, I got it working.
I had some dependancy issues I had to hash out but other than that it compile easily...

Some of the desklets act a little strange but the ones that I like work fine.

oh, by the way, I'm on fc4-x64

thanks

- Jay

edit: the cpu usage isnt too bad (~5%) on a 3400+ stepped down to 800mhz
the mem usage seems to be around 15Mb... (not too bad if your running a gig+ )

edit edit: the cpu and mem usage can change significantly depending on which desklets I seem to run

gDesklets is available in the "extras" repository via yum. As root, run:

yum install gdesklets

then go to their website to get the desklets you want.

installing gDesklets via yum
 
su to root, yum -y install gdesklets.i386

however
 
However, now I'm having trouble installing the desklets. There was a site I used when I had it on fc3 but don't remember the name, anyway, i get install failed: no install files, and there was another.. don't know what's up. the old site I just dragged the desklet from Firefox to the GD Shell and it would automatically install. Any suggestions?
