Ok, my original simple question has taken a new life of its own. A little while ago, I updated rpm to rpm 4 on my RH 6.2 server. Now, when I use the menus to go to GnoRPM, it doesn't work; I presume because the old rpm program doesnt work. So, I was going to ask, how can I point GnoRPM to rpm4.
Then, I started perusing the topics here in the X and window managers forum. I noticed a reference to Gnome2. Would it make more sense to upgrade my Gnome to Gnome2? I know there are thoughts about KDE vs Gnome, but since I've used Gnome for a while, I figured I would stick with it.
Is it worth the upgrade? Is the upgrade easy? Any pitfalls to watch out for? Comments?
I use Gnome 2 now and I like it very much. I have never used Gnome 1.4 though, so I don't know if it's worth upgrading.
I don't know how hard it is to upgrade in Red Hat (I use Gentoo), but if I were you I would wait for Gnome 2.0.2 to be released. They fixed many bugs with the 2.0.1 release and 2.0.2 will have many more bugs fixed.
2.0.2 rc1 was released a couple of days ago so the official release is probably not too far away.
