Re: gnome unstable repository

No, not yet...

ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/gnome-unstable/os/

Keep an eye on this ;-)

I think that JGC shouldn't bother with prerelease, now that stable tarballs will be released the day after tomorrow... Could be uploaded then straight to testing...

Re: gnome unstable repository

Yay! Evo ML released 2.28 already.

Sigh, the poor x86_64 users still have to wait.

Re: gnome unstable repository

Don't have to wait, jgc uploaded x86_64 packages... Just add gnome-unstable repo...

Unresolved dep libcups and libldap, I've just Syud, report back later if it works...

WOW! smile CPU get's throttled, I have constant 50% cpu usage, where X, gconfd2 and gnome-session is eating most of the cpu time.

Clock applet doesn't work, gnome-power-manager also (that's normal because of the switch to devicekit)...

I recommend that everyone for now have a backup solution for DE...

Re: gnome unstable repository

For x86_64 you'll need testing to satisfy dependencies. The i686 version needs some rebuilds/updates for libldap still.

Re: gnome unstable repository

Thnx jgc, enabled testing, installed libldap and libcups...

Problem with cpu usage is caused by compiz, when I switch to metacity the problem remains but when I restart and have metacity by default cpu usage is just fine.

Re: gnome unstable repository

Yeah I know, but I didn't know that testing had to be enabled ;-)
Yaourt gave me what dep's are unsatisfied so I've patched things up...

Funny thing about this compiz issue is that sometimes when I want to logout it says that uknown app is not responding, and when I press cancel to go back to gnome desktop the cpu consumption is gone? When I logout it says that process was not responding and it gives me PID, heh, I've redirected ps output before that in a file and it points out that the process is gnome-session ?

Re: gnome unstable repository

Everything seems to work fine on x86_64, thanks for the packages JCG !

But the thing is, what have been doing the gnome developpers during 6 months ? Because I don't see any differences between before and after the update (but no new bugs so it's cool).
I did saw a new disk utility, but we already have gparted so why spend time rewriting another one ?

Anyway, I like gnome but I just stopped expecting new ideas coming from there releases...

Re: gnome unstable repository

I've added this repo to pacman.conf:
[gnome-unstable]
Server = ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/gnome-unstable/os/x86_64/
but when trying to install f.e. gnome-panel there is still 2.26. What's wrong with it?

Re: gnome unstable repository

It must be on top of all the other repos.
Enable testing just below the gnome-unstable repo.

The sync and install gnome 2.28.

I personally have pacman -Sw it, and i'm gonna install it tomorrow (perhaps)

Re: gnome unstable repository

Does this new powermanager with more devkit features (hdd spindown) mean better power managment and better battery life?
I have just moved from xfce to gnome, and I have noticed that autonomy is about 15min less.

but:

`--> yaourt gnome-menus
1 gnome-unstable/gnome-menus 2.27.92-1 [installed]

Edit: forced it with pacman -Sd, works perfectly

Re: gnome unstable repository

Does anybody suffers from compiz issue (agressive cpu usage).

I get this error:

WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported!  This is an application bug!

Tried with xorg from git and xorg from arch repo's and nothin'...

I saw that there were bug reports about this issue on gnome 2.28 that were filed yesterday...

edit: nah, i've just pulled mesa from git and they fixed the warning's but the problem remains
