Compilyng Gome 2.32 on Mageia 2
Hi, i am experiencig problems with gnome 3 on my mageia 2, besides i don't like gonme shell so i would like to install gnome 2.32 instead, so the question is where can i get the gnome 2.32 por this version of mageia or wish to know the steps to download and compile it for my distro, thanks, i will apreciate any sugestions.

The easy way : Install the other "Mandrake / Mandriva" OS : PCLinuxOS-2012.08,
which has Gnome 2.32 available in the repos. ( Default at OS install : KDE 4.)
PCLinuxOS comes as a live DVD. Easy to try out.

Or : Use the PCLinuxOS Gnome2 packages in Mageia.
The main packages are : gnome-desktop gnome-panel
( Those two packages will pull all dependencies.)
You will also want : nautilus gnome-editor gedit

i586 >
> main
( No x86_64 PCLinuxOS.)

Install Xfce. It goes much faster.

log out and login.

thanks nigelc and knudfl, actually i allready did installed xfce cause my machine is low in resources and it is running good, and knudfl i recently installed mageia after i tried several other distros, i didn't like the way ubuntu runs, even with gnome nor xfce, i liked how smooth mageia runs, i think its one of the more stable distros i have tried and i wish to keep using it, however i'll give a try to pclinuxos, but for the moment i'll apreciate your help telling me how can i posibly install the gnome 2.x packages from pclinuxos
