Thread: GNOME 2.24 Repository

  1. #1

    Default GNOME 2.24 Repository

    Where is the GNOME 2.24 Repository? It seems that the GNOME repositories have been kind of neglected lately.

    There were never any 2.23 (beta 2.24 packages in unstable) and now there are no 2.24 packages in stable.

    Nor has the Pidgin package been updated in Community for a while.

    What is the status of this build service?

    Hi
    Just build pidgin from source, been running 2.5.1 for awhile now... You
    could also search as there seems to be lots of people who have built it.
    http://software.opensuse.org/search

    I posted my compile options in this thread;
    When there will be a updating for PIDGIN in the opensuse11.0 ?

    Thanks for the reply. I know how to build packages from source, but shouldn't we have updated community repositories? I can build an rpm from source just fine and install the rpm, but then why have the repo's?

    I'm mainly wondering about the status of the repositories. Will they be updated? Are the GNOME ones neglected, or going towards the route of decomissioning?

    Hi
    I don't know if this has anything to do with it...

    You may want to add the Factory repository instead?

    If you do decide to use the Factory repository, be careful. Because you are using OpenSUSE 11.0, and have 11.0 software installed, adding the factory repository could cause dependency issues, commonly in YaST. I don't mean to discourage you, just wanted to warn you not to ignore any dependencies and sure positive about which packages you install. Just speaking from experience.

    Best of luck!

    Nope, I don't want Factory. Factory will upgrade a whole lot more then just GNOME.

    I personally use KDE, and I have the KDE BuildService which is kept up-to-date pretty good.

    However GNOME is not the same.. It's not kept up.

    Angry Re: GNOME 2.24 Repository

    GNOME 2.24 is supposedly in 11.1 Beta, so where did it come from if not the GNOME:Stable Build Service repo?

    Is work duplicated somewhere or why is Build Service a huge mess...?

    GNOME 2.24 on openSUSE 11.0 status
    September 30th, 2008 by Bryen

    Some people have asked whether they can install the new GNOME 2.24 on their openSUSE 11.0 setup, and still others have asked me to blog the status of it.

    Heres what I know:

    * The openSUSE GNOME developers are working on it but there were some issues in the build service.
    * There are plans to create a one-click install.
    * It is hoped that this will be done soon.
    * If you havent so yet, subscribe to the opensuse-GNOME mailing list to be notified when 2.24 is available.
