Gnome 2 Fork in Process

Post by gentoovortex » Tue Jul 12, 2011 17:25

There is a guy named Perberos who is working on a fork of Gnome2 and has uploaded to the AUR at ArchLinux. Looks like he might get enough volunteer support to make a real go of this but for now he's doing everything by himself. For those not relishing the move to Gnome 3 this might be an alternative to keeping your Gnome2 desktop, if it proves stable in the future and is compatible with Sabayon. His website is and he has his own repository ... repository. He's looking for Gentoo people to help as well. Fabio or Joost would know best whether this is viable for Sabayon or maybe more of a pain than Gnome3
GUI's?? We don't need no stinkin' GUI's!!!

Sabayon Openbox/Fluxbox / Gentoo Fluxbox / Funtoo Fluxbox / Slackware-Current Fluxbox / Crux Openbox
