GNOME For Slackware / GNOME From Scratch (GNOME 40.2)


Hi, guys. I have a project I call GNOME From Scratch / GNOME for Slackware (gfs).
I recently updated my project, where I compiled the GNOME 40.
If you want to experiment, go to project page:

https://github.com/slackport/gfs

There you will have information on how to install the precompiled packages (GNOME For Slackware)
or compile them from source using SlackBuild scripts (GNOME From Scratch).
The packages are stored at http://slackware.uk (Thanks, Tedgy, for all the help and support):

http://slackware.uk/gfs/

We have 298 lovingly crafted packages out there, and I would very much like you to test this out.
Any questions please contact me via email or via the #slackware.uk channel on irc.libera.chat.


Cheers,

great!

Have you considered joining forces with Dropline? As far as I remember, it's only saxa at the moment who's working on it.

The idea sounds good, but dropline uses DBS (Dropline Build System), which is not based on SlackBuilds, and I prefer writing SlackBuilds because it looks more modern and clearer to anyone reading it.

I appreciate the suggestion. Thank you.

Is this GFS capable to run on Wayland?

And, congratulation for your hard work!

Yes it is, I use "-Dwayland=true" whenever possible, but wayland is still a bit of a headache sometimes.

Dropline uses its own build system, which does not feature the use of SlackBuilds.
I prefer writing in SlackBuilds because it's modern and clear for anyone who wants to read it.
But thanks for your suggestion.
