You could always remove the gnome 2.4 packages and install from source, as I plan to do.

Exclamation These GNOME 2.6 packages are badly packaged

These GNOME 2.6 packages have been packaged too quickly and without any test from the packager ! They even should not be widely available ! I have tested them on my test box with a clean Slackware 9.1installation and without GNOME previously installed (to avoid eventual "old configuration" problem with GNOME 2.6). I was really surprised : does the packager really know what he did ? Obviously no. GConf schemas are not installed upon package installation . You must install them manually before starting GNOME ! As root, under BASH, use the following command

Code:
mv /etc/gconf /etc/gconf-2.4.x # Remove GNOME 2.4.x installed schemas
export GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE=`gconftool-2 --get-default-source`
for SCHEMAS in $(cd /etc/gconf/schemas ; ls *.schemas)
do
   /usr/bin/gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$SCHEMAS
done
/usr/bin/gconftool-2 \
	--direct \
	--config-source=$GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE \
	--load /etc/gconf/schemas/panel-default-setup.entries
Before starting GNOME as your standard user, shutdown GConfd (gconftool-2 --shutdown) and backup up your ~/.gconf, ~/.gconfd, ~/.gnome, ~/.gnome2, ~/.gnome2_private and best, remove them to be sure they don't conflict with new configuration (Well OK, it's not really necessary but it's too badly packaged that you will be sure problems don't come from importing old GNOME configuration). I don't even think about other problem that can arise from these packages. You should better wait for Dropline GNOME if you really want polished packages.

There is /etc/gconf-2.4/ and when i copy this in /etc/gconf , script works, but there is still some errors, and apps in gnome are too slowly ...
