Adam and I have finished updating all the necessary ports for GNOME
2.3.0. For those that did GNOME 2.1 testing, the procedure hasn't
changed. For new testers, you should go to
http://www.marcuscom.com:8080/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi, and follow the
instructions there to checkout the ``ports'' module. Then, download the
marcusmerge script from the same page. Then run:
marcusmerge -s /path/to/checked/out/ports/tree -d
marcusmerge -s /home/marcus/src/marcuscom-cvs/ports -d /usr/ports
This will merge all the development ports with your main ports tree.
From there, you can run portupgrade -ra (if you already have GNOME 2
installed), or cd to /usr/ports/x11/gnome2, and do a make install.
Note, this is a _development_ release. That means pre-beta for the most
part. Only do this if you don't really care about your desktop
functioning most of the time. I also encourage you to add the following
to /etc/make.conf to aid in debugging:
CFLAGS= "-O -pipe -g"
There may be things broken with the port (i.e. forgotten dependencies,
missed files, etc.). If you notice anything, please report it to
freebsd-gnome ASAP. You probably shouldn't file PRs against these ports
as they won't be reflected in commit logs. However, if you notice
genuine problems with an application, don't hesitate to fire up
bug-buddy, and report the problem with the application authors.
Happy bug hunting!
