When I Have Time (Hahaha)

</td>
weather: sunny
mood: pensive
music: Kiri Te Kanawa - Madama Butterfly, Po Ata Ran (Puccini)

I couldn't get Drivel to work =P I installed Ximian - everything and the dev packages. I didn't see the library I wanted in the installation manifest, but I was hoping that it lived in one of the packages listed. *harumph* Drivel's ./configure still stopped on libgnomeui.

Nick pointed me to the Ximian channels, but for some reason, there wasn't a Gnome 2.0 channel. The theory is that it's not available for Redhat 7.0. So, I'd want to upgrade to Redhat 7.3 first and try Red Carpet again. That was a little more than I had energy for, so I just left it at that...

For my Anti-Boredom Activities, I want to re-outfit my Linux box with:

  • Bigger harddrive (possibly)
    • Heretic has a 6Gig drive in there right now, which is not too bad, but somehow 6Gs sounds so small now...
  • Redhat 7.3
  • Ximian Gnome
  • Apache
  • Perl
  • PHP
  • Oracle or MySQL
    • I really want to install Personal Oracle. Oracle has lower suckitude than MySQL by far. But Oracle is more of a pain in the ass to get set up.
  • Galeon
  • GAIM
  • Drivel
  • OpenOffice

Heh, she's right.

Ok, so I did more digging. The Gnome-2.0 dev snapshots are ONLY available for Ximian/Redhat 7.2. So either go to 7.2, or install them from source (ick).

Read that.

However, according to this, RH 7.3 may soon have Gnome2 snapshots available:

The cool thing, though? Gnome-2.0 is due out this month, so if you want, you could just give it a few weeks and theoretically just move straight over to 2.0-release.

Anyways, hope that helps a bit. :)
