i actually prefer gnome to kde.i am looking for help to get gnome installed.
so far i have SL up and working fine for the most part,but i am still trying to wrap my mind all around emerge and how to add and remove various packages.
i am usually good with using the search box/button but i seem to be unable to find the thing i am looking for.and i am not exactly sure of what i am looking for anyway.
so can i get some help?
i'd like to know in a nutshell what this means:
emerge-i assume this is adding/installing
un emerge- removing package
ebuild-this is info pertaining to what i am trying to install?
update world--is this for updates for SL as it's current state is on my comp right now?
and info on removing packages that are blocking other packages.when i try to install gnome it gives me a message that one package(sorry cant recall which one) is blocking an older/newer version of the same package.
and thanks for the community at large--it is awesome to have a helpful , involved community to ask for help.you all are awesome!! and sorry in advance for my newb ways
