Hi all!!!

I try to install the new gnome2's build. I did an emerge rsync, the ebuild appears...
I try uncommenting lines in package.mask but doesn't work... I probably don't know the right synthax for this file. Anyone can give me an hint about all this great gnome2 news!

Thanks for any replies!

do an emerge rsync now, to make sure you catch any changes that have happened recently

search for gnome2 in the package.mask file

comment out all of the lines from >=x11-libs/gtk+-2.0.0 up to and including >=dev-python/pygtk-1.99.0 using '#'

now an emerge --pretend gnome should list all of the gnome 2 items (confirm that the bottom entry is 2.0 not 1.4)... then you are ready to emerge gnome.

Hi pablored!

Thanks a lot for your precious help! I didn't realize that commenting a line would prevent it from being masked... Humm. I must be too tired of work...

Anyways... it is compiling right now ... I will let you know if everything went well!

Thanks again!

Best Regards,
