I guess those rpms will be posted to ftp.suse.com/...supplementary/GNOME as soon they are finished.
Check this page for new packages : http://www.novell.com/linux/download/gnomes/index.html

Other source for that is James Ogleys rpm site: http://www.usr-local-bin.org/linux.php

It was not my intent to bash anyone, just save people some time and trouble.

After I installed dropline gnome for my x86_64 based system that is using Slamd64-10.2b (an unofficial port of Slackware 10.2), it essentially killed my system.

My basic everyday apps still ran fine, and I *thought* that I just saved myself a lot of time, but I soon discovered that my most important apps simply would not run anymore.

Cinelerra http://heroinewarrior.com/cinelerra.php3 crashed on startup. Yes, I know that Cinelerra has its quirks, but there are no other comparable video editing apps for Linux. And, most importantly for me, jack (low latency audio server) http://jackaudio.org would not run properly.
Recompiles of jack & cinelerra did not help. And no jack means no Ardour http://ardour.org or any other of my many excellent audio apps.

Since it was a new system, I decided to do a fresh install, *WITHOUT* dropline. And, I compiled gnome-2.14.2 myself. This way, I know that I won't be doing any system changes like dropline does.

I also installed gnome into /opt/gnome-2.14.2 so this way, any upgrades would be easier than using /usr/local .

I'm not slamming the good people behind dropline, but, you may want to consider another gnome distribution, especially for x86_64 systems.

Dropline tampers way too much with your original system.
Hmm. It would appear that you've posted this message in about 8 different threads that are related to Dropline. Not sure why you did that, but I guess you've gotten your point across.

I take it that you didn't notice that this thread is 100% unrelated to Slackware?

This thread deals with SUSE 10.1. Not Slackware, and not Dropline.

Dropline Gnome 2.14 != Gnome 2.14

The Gnome 2.14 packages for SUSE are not even remotely related to Dropline.

Now that we have that covered... on to your 'blurb' about Dropline itself.

So let me get this straight, after installing Dropline and running into issues... instead of sending in a bug report, or maybe doing something constructive, you'd rather spam unrelated threads with negative comments about it.

Right....

Your best bet would be to switch to Freerock Gnome, which does not change system wide packages and installs cleanly over Slackware.



...and for God's sake man... unless you can code a full desktop environment on your own, don't bash it just because you can't figure shit out. Do something constructive that might actually help people in the open source community, like detail the steps to resolving the issue, or file a bug report and work with developers to solve the problem. Telling people not to use it does not actually help anyone.

I wish I saw the postings that you made last month. It would have saved me tons of grief .

Don't let this genius above me put you off.

I've met some really nice and helpful people in the Linux community in the last few years.

I wish the dropline people well.

For me, this is one of the few times that I can't seem to repair a Linux problem.

This will be my first and last posting to this thread.

No no no we are not saying that by posting that, he did something wrong, but its just completely a wrong thread.

He is talking about some Slack-hack distro. That almost the same as the green lizard distro, wait, no it isn't. He goes on with talking about dropline, and people are thinking, whats that...

And of cource he did mention he compiled the gnome, so ....

Helping others is allways welcome in the community, but maybe one should post things to right places
