Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
[ Thanks to Jeff Waugh for this
GARNOME 0.8.5 - the bleeding edge GNOME distribution for testers
and tweakers everywhere - is ready for more tire-kicking and
bug-bashing. If you're dying to try the GNOME 2.0 Desktop, but
don't want to fall into the depraved addictions and co-dependencies
of testing from anonymous CVS, then GARNOME is for you.
So, G2D Beta 3 is very yummy. Lots of polish, lots of bugfixing,
but there's plenty of opportunity for testing, bug reporting, and
even more bugfixing. That's why GARNOME is here! Join
uber-bug-meister Luis Villa and his hordes of bug-busters every
Thursday in the #bugs channel on irc.gnome.org.
- Based on G2D Beta 3. Too many updates to list. :-)
- Now includes GIMP 1.3.x and MrProject! Hurrah!
- Some fixes to the buildDocBookCatalog script, first reported by
Uri David Akavia. It now works completely within GARNOME, and you
do not need to modify anything outside your chosen prefix.
- We now build gtk-doc before glib to fix up some libglade errors
for people who have an older version installed on their system
already. Thanks to James Henstridge and the guy who would not tell
me his name (you know who you are).
- Dan Nicolaescu submitted a fix to allow parallel builds of
garballs, but safely disabling it for the GAR system itself. Thanks
