Suse 9.1/Gnome

by phil66 / May 18, 2005 2:22 AM PDT

Hi everybody

Dell 800 mhz
Windows Me/Suse 9.1

I have installed Suse 9.1 with Kde desktop,Firefox,Thunderbird,xtuxcall.

I am now trying to install Gnome 2.6.1 desktop and have run into a number of conflicts.

In the control-center2 2.6.1-3.i586 rpm file the conflict is the following missing files:
A search of and Googles and other linux and Gnome sites but could not find these files.

Nautilus 2.6.1-5 conflict is missing file control-center2

All the missing files are so.? files. Are these source files I have found some source files with the extension "so" but not the ones I need.

Can any one tell me where to look for these files.

This is a learning venture into Linux so I can upgrade to newer distro's later.

Thanks for your help

They just don't fit.

SuSE support for GNOME is just sad, especially in 9.1.

It is a KDE centric distribution and I highly reccomend either using KDE or switch to a different distribution such as Redhat, Fedora, or Mandrake, which are Gnome centric distributions.

*** SuSE 9.2 has much better support for GNOME than 9.1.

Sorry for the delay.

Yes, the new SuSE 9.3 is very featureful and easy to use. It has better support for hardware (and GNOME). You shouln't have any problems.

** To avoid any problems, make sure you install GNOME when you install your new SuSE 9.3 system.
