[If tech-pkg isn't the right place, and I should be asking on
e.g. netbsd-users, please let me know.]
I am trying to migrate from gnome 1.4 to 2.2, not only for myself but
for someone else, upon whom I do not want to impose any grief (this
person does not enjoy straightening out gnome problems!). It now
seems that most of gnome1 and gnome2 can coexist, but installing
gnome-panel lost due to gnome1-panel being installed.
Looking at the PLISTS,
sort gnome-panel/PLIST gnome1-panel/PLIST | uniq -c | egrep -v '^ *1'
I find only a few files that conflict.
2 @dirrm share/pixmaps/fish
2 @dirrm share/pixmaps/mailcheck
I'm inclined to just remove the CONFLICTS line and proceed, since I
can deal with losing some (more or less pointless anyway) pixmaps
after I remove gnome1-panel until I rebuild gnome-panel. The better,
but harder way, would be to either split these into a
gnome-panel-pixmaps package, or to rename the files for gnome1-panel.
Does gnome2 in general work on NetBSD now (pgksrc-current on
1.6.1-stable/i386, in particular)? Is the above the only hitch for
gnome1 and gnome2 coexistence?
In order for users to have a smooth transition, I think gnome1 and
gnome2 have to able to be both fully installed.
