I want to try Enlightenment...


Hey everyone,
I am looking for a little bit of guidance and advice for getting Enlightenment up and running on my system.

I am running Fedora Core, w/ GNOME and KDE.
I have a GeForce FX 5200

and I know I am missing the following dependencies:
"fnlib" "libFnlib.so.0" "libImlib.so.1"

Where do I go to download these, and where do I install them to?

After that is done do I just install the Enlightenment RPM, and modify either GNOME or KDE to run Enlightenment?

I am very new to customizing my system. I have only recently joined the Linux community, and now I am looking to play around with what all is out there. As I have said I know nothing about how to compile and run a Window Manager, the install did everythin for me as far as getting KDE and GNOME to run. Heck the concept of installing another desktop is foriegn to me, since I have been a Windows guy forever....

Mike

You didn't look very hard:

http://www.enlightenment.org/pages/download.html

All the dependancies, even the one you mentioned, are at the top.

Cheers.
