Ok, a small update. Yesterday I have put up some new updates and one is pulseaudio 4.0 . All this is up for the x86_64 arch. I expect to have the i686 uploaded up to the end of this week most probably, time permitting. Most of the i686 packages are already build up, need just to finish the missing ones and after that I will prepare the installer for all of you who want to help with 3.8.

Stay tuned.

hi, I think you can safely using it with multilib. As the x86-64 is pure x86-64 build. And i686 is pure i686. I mean, yes we are building the packages on each platform independently. Report back if it give you problems. It should not at all.

Hi, I have two problems with suspendig/hibernation; the first one probably is only an extension problem, I have no suspend/hibernation option in the status menu by enabling
alternative status menu extension. The second problem is that the pc doesn't suspend, the notification popup is shown but pc keeps running.

With dropline 3.6 the extension didn't work too but the system went in suspend mode when enabled.

Thats one of the possibilities, another one is probably we can do something with ConsoleKit,PolicyKit and PAM to enable those options. Somebody should step in to check this for sure. I have been able to hibernate my laptop with 3.6 but only with the command line dbus command.

http://www.droplinegnome.org/files/3.8/i686/ here are all the packages needed for an i686 install. Please do not forget to install some packages from 3.6 which you find on the
same location.

Some of the important packages are gnome-themes-standard, avahi, libdaemon at least. Those need to be from http://www.droplinegnome.org/files/3.6/i686/ .

I should have an installer ready shortly.

gmgf, those packages are actually all gnome 3.6 packages and not needed/obsolute in 3.8 (they can be removed)
except for alsa-plugins.

for sound its not only alsa-plugins also gnome-settings-daemon that needs a rebuild.
gnome-settings-daemon just released 3.8.3 so this will be updated soon aswell.
