Gnome Under Slackware 11.0
I'm trying to figure out if we can use Gnome 2.18.0 (sure we can) under Slackware 11.0 . so my question is does anybody knows the best solution to use it ? in the LinuxPackages: View there is no recent gnome package .
If not i'm going to compile the source code ,i already downloaded from the official gnome site.

I used to compile GNOME from source on Slack, although I found the process a lot harder than compiling KDE from source. You can also use the packages from dropline, gware or freerock, but unfortunately non of them are at version 2.18 yet.

Thanks carlosponti for the Link, i prefer gnome because it's a gtk+ based.
For the compiling from source code ,yes it's a pain,the configure script for each package gives you some ohter requirements !!! and when you try to compile those other it gives others,and so on,plus the number of individual package that you have to compile.i'm going to try to compile it but not in my laptop ,in another machine because i have a lot of important data under Slack and the compiling procces needs to remove some packages and install recent version of them,if i manage to compile it i'll post here.
