gnome-core, libpanel, dependencies
Hey all...I'm not really new to Linux, I've been at it about a year now, but I guess I'm still new enough! I want to spruce up gnome (2.0, RH8) a little bit add some entertainment, etc...First, I figured I'd upgrade it, but I abandoned that idea when I couldn't find any help with it, and it seemed way too difficult (isn't it? am I wrong? help?), so, then I figured I'd find things for what I have. I do find some stuff, and I try to install it, but apparently I'm missing "libpanel_applet.so.0" , whatever, I find out it's part of the gnome-core rpm, so I go looking for that, and IT'S missing files. Now, before I hop on THAT merry-go-round (done that before, didn't like it) I just wanted some confirmation from the powers that are true Linux experts, that this is actually what I have to do. It seems to me that a normal installation would HAVE CORE FILES, but I guess not? Do you see where I'm coming from? Thanks people.....you know I appreciate it....
