Gnome 1.4

I’m running the update to Ximian Gnome 1.4 right now. Not that I use Gnome, mind you, but it is nice to have the up-to-date version on a system, and not the Red Hat modified version.

At ISDN speeds it is sloooow.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    So instead of Red Hat modified GNOME, you get Ximian modified GNOME? *shrug* In general, I’ve been less than impressed by Ximian’s packaging of stuff. GNOME 1.4 packages can also be found in a rawhide mirror near you :-)
