The torrent seem to work good and also Slacky.eu is going to migrate on a better performance server!

This GSlacky version use "stb-admin" group for the admin-tools. The first GSlacky version with a working Gnome-system-tools.
Thank's again to Markus alias Darkvision, for the patch. And to my Slacky's friend Submax82 for redundant patch code clean.

Can we please cut with the Non-Intrusive B.S. It's getting rather old now.

The torrent stays stalled.
The ftp runs @ 7 KB/sec.

I've been trying to get it for several days and finally gave up and ordered it...

Is there a setup for gnome that I can install just to my user account? That is, not system packages. I really just want the libraries so that I can run one program (gramps).

Yes, compile a most basic gnome with Garnome.

Unlikely. Honesty is not universal...

Ok i removed the "Non-intrusive"!

A new torrent is ready on linuxtracker. Thank's again Markus.

http://linuxtracker.org/torrents-details.php?id=4740


There is a problem on GSlacky with look screen. The solution is to set the setuid for /usr/libexec/gnome-screensaver-dialog

Code:
chmod +s /usr/libexec/gnome-screensaver-dialog
Will be fixed for the next version.

Ps. Thank's Su-Shee

As everyone's raving about Gnome 2.20, I'd like to take a look at it. But before I download and install Gnome Slacky, I'd like to know how intrusive it is.

The project guidelines state:

Guidelines
1) The installation is non-intrusive meaning that it doesn't modify the
important core Slackware components.

2) The Gnome-Slacky cd is completely self-sufficient, comprehensive of all the
dependencies and of the original slackware packages replaced during the
installation. In this way they can be easily restored.



So it seems that there are some packages replaced, and the project considers itself still non-intrusive.

Is there a list of Slackware stock packages being replaced by Gnome Slacky packages?
And is it easy to get rid of GSlacky without leaving unwanted files in my system in case I don't like it?

Thanks,

gargamel

Inside the Gslacky ISO (mount GSlacky2.20.0.iso /mnt/tmp -o loop)there is a Directory named package_Slackware_12.0 (inside the packages directory). In there you can find the packages that are replaced by the 2.20 installation.

Code:
root@parsiphae:/mnt/tmp/packages/package_slackware_12.0# ls

atk-1.18.0-i486-1.tgz                 hicolor-icon-theme-0.9-noarch-2.tgz
cairo-1.4.10-i486-1.tgz               libglade-2.6.1-i486-1.tgz
dbus-1.0.2-i486-3.tgz                 libgsf-1.14.3-i486-1.tgz
dbus-glib-0.73-i486-1.tgz             libidl-0.8.7-i486-1.tgz
desktop-file-utils-0.12-i486-2.tgz    librsvg-2.16.1-i486-1.tgz
esound-0.2.38-i486-1.tgz              libxml2-2.6.28-i486-1.tgz
gamin-0.1.8-i486-2.tgz                libxslt-1.1.20-i486-2.tgz
glib2-2.12.12-i486-1.tgz              pango-1.16.4-i486-1.tgz
gmime-2.2.9-i486-1.tgz                poppler-0.5.4-i486-1.tgz
gnome-icon-theme-2.14.2-noarch-2.tgz  shared-mime-info-0.21-i486-2.tgz
gtk+2-2.10.13-i486-1.tgz              vte-0.16.5-i486-1.tgz
hal-0.5.9.1-i486-1.tgz
I uninstalled the 2.20 GSlacky version with help of the option in the installation Menu, and then did an "upgrade --install-new --reinstall *.tgz" in the slackware_packages directory.. My box is running without any problems

I guess the only way of getting a 2.20 version of Gnome running on a Slackware system, is upgrading/replacing "some" packages due to dependencies.

Thanks a lot, Pratt. Good to know that the GSlacky folks consider replacing D-BUS and HAL as being non-intrusive. ;-)

That leaves one question for me: Why did you de-install GSlacky? Why did you not like it?

I downgraded back to GSlacky 2.18 because i had problems with Opera and Flash animations, i googled my issue and the problem seemed to be the (new versions of) glib2 and gtk+2 libraries.

I consider GSlacky as a great GNOME solution, but I am thinking in trying out Dropline Gnome (once again), but mostly because they give support in english (My italian skills arent that good.. well my english isnt that good either, but what the heck! :P)

That doesn't strike me as particularly "intrusive." It guess it's a fine line between installing additional libraries to run a program and replacing libraries.

The only disadvantage I can see to replacing some libraries is that one wouldn't be able to download official Slackware patches for those libraries.

Regards,
