ok well i <i>think</i> i installed it through garnome
but i cant access it
the readme says::

-----
How do I start GARNOME once it is installed?

The easiest way is to create a garnome-session script, and use the standard method your distribution provides to launch it when you start X. Here's what the script should look like:

#!/bin/sh
GARNOME=$HOME/garnome

PATH=$GARNOME/bin:$PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$GARNOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
PYTHONPATH=$GARNOME/lib/python2.2/site-packages
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$GARNOME/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig
GDK_USE_XFT=1

export PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH PYTHONPATH PKG_CONFIG_PATH GDK_USE_XFT

exec $GARNOME/bin/gnome-session

Just set the GARNOME variable at the top to wherever you installed GARNOME. It will usually be $HOME/garnome, as above.

If you start X with the startx command you should launch this in ~/.xinitrc. If you use the Xsession menu choice in GDM, you should launch this in ~/.xsession. Assuming the garnome-session script is in your path, both files should look like this:

#!/bin/sh
exec garnome-session

My own startup script is a little bit funkier:

#!/bin/sh
xset -solid black
xset fp+ /home/jdub/.fonts/
xset fp rehash
exec /usr/bin/ssh-agent /home/jdub/bin/garnome-session

This sets the background to black so I don't have to look at the ugly grey default for very long, sets up old X programs to use all the fonts I have in my .fonts directory, and runs garnome-session under ssh-agent (very useful if you use ssh keys).
-----

how would i go about setting up that load script, and where would i put it??
on a rh9 box btw

I didn't have any success (maybe from lack of trying hard) with Garnome....so I went with CVSGnome and it worked very well.

You do a simple "world stable" command and it does it all for you!

ok

so i run the cvsgnome install
but it stops towards the end, when installing totem
it says my glibc is incorrect
itr says that
it is greater than 2.0.0 or whatever it needs
its actually 2.3.0
but i still have 2.1.1 on the system

this is on a rh9 box
i run up2date and everything is as current as possible
i dont think its up2date tho

i can install anything before cvs gnome and after updates
ie gaim-0.68
but after i get the error in cvsgnomes install of totem
i get the same issue every time i install gaim afterwords
(btw i have to reinstall gaim because after cvsgnome i can only load 0.58.9, which came with rh9...ya odd)

o and i can boot into gnome-2.4.0 even tho totem and all packages after it cant be installed

so basically im askin why i get the glibc error??
does cvsgnome install the new version?
but didnt up2date do that for me?
why does it overwrite gaim?

If you have more than one version of gcc and or glibc on your system you will need to set local variables (usually done by the configure scripts) to tell it which you wish to use, to be sure its using that one. I would suggest making sure you only keep those if you need them (you don't without a specific reason).

I haven't seen the gnome cvs so can't tell you anything more, but I suggets looking into what the cvs tree configure is using for libs etc..
