Getting Enlightenment to work in Fedora?

It appears from a few posts that some folks have gotten Enlightenment to work in Fedora. How did you do it.

I am trying to install E-16.6. I had to (and still am) trying to work through several dependency problems. I am stuck at an error saying that I need to have installed. Fedora appears to have an updated libpng package which contains. I can't seem install an older package that has the .2 file, because depency issues won't let me remove the newer package. Tried creating symbolic links names, but that doesn't work. I appear to be stuck.

If anyone has gotten it to work, I'd sure appreciate some thoughts. Did you run into this problem, or am I missing some easy way to do it.

Its way too late at night when I am following up on my own questions.

Having problems with e16 lead me to try e17. I got that installed and configure X to start enlightenment with switchdesk. Now when I start X, and hence enlightenment, I get a white screen. I can do nothing with it. The only way I can figure to get out of it is switch to a new terminal and kill it.

Has anybody tried e17 with Fedora and gotten it to work?

By the way, thank in advance to everyone on this forum. It has been invaluable in the last few months that I have been trying to learn a little about Linux. I lurk around it probably more often than my wife would like and most of the time can find that my problem has already been answered.
