guarda slab on fedora 5 on flickr
Actually SLAB isn’t very platform indipendend because it need some enhancement done by Novell to Gnome, ie. the latest used applications doesn’t work at all.
Moreover in the code there are some call to SuSe application (such YaST and Zen-Updater), I’ve hacked a little the schemas to use only Gnome, or at least Fedora, similar applications (ie. gnome-newtork-schema, gnome-yelp, Fedora pup and pirut).
I’ll upload the RPM as soon as possible on my official italian blog, so feel free to test it but remember that:
- this is my first real RPM, I’ve not (yet) studied nothing about dependancies, lib or whatever 🙂
- this is a package of a UNSTABLE software wrote for ANOTHER distro
- Beagle should be enabled
- To add the new main-menu applet to your panel after the installation you need to restart Gnome, a simple logoff should be fine.
