Yeah it's not a very nice virus, but then i don't think i've ever met a nice one. Interestingly if you put ALL of the worlds most dangerous animals in one group and count the amount of people they kill in one year, they would be beaten easily by the amount the mosquito kills in one month. This makes the mosquito by far the most dangerous being (for humans) on the planet.

I built gnome-3.10.2 for both 32 and 64bit but it is so full of bugs that i don't think i will release it. As a desktop it is more than usable if you don't want some of the built in gnome stuff.

The following does not work:
gnome-music
gnome-video
gnome-documents (works but only for online docs)
bluetooth
screenlock

I can put it up but with no support. I don't feel like (or have the time) bug squashing for this desktop. Every new gnome release breaks something or brings problems because of new stuff.

Hello Jay,

Glad to hear that the virus will not have the last word with you. :)

Please, just make a link to what you did. I imagine that a few very skillfull individual on the forum will try to move the result a little further.

Thanks.

Note: By the way, we are kind of brother in arms. During a trip in center africa in my 30's, across Tanzania from the Dar es salam next to the Indian ocean to the center across lake Tanganyika, to Butare Rwanda, I got malaria, falciparum type. The mosquito is also the host, and it seems man too. Plasmodium falciparum is still the number one killer on this planet. It seems I got thru. Otherwise, I would not be here to talk about it. Fever, Grand mal crisis and delirium was really some kind of mystical experience then. Is malaria still much present in Brasil?

Sounds like the trip of a lifetime. The stuff stories to Grankids are made of. My ordeal was a little less exciting and less hallucinogenic (unfortunately).
Yes Malaria is still prevalent in Brasil along with yellow fever, dengue, leprosy, polio and corrupt politicians. But it's a beautiful country. :unknown:

I will upload what I have sometime this week.

We also have our load or corrupted politicians and business men. Some of them are really wise to :good: (with the middle finger and not the thumb) the individual, but also the population at large. :shock:

Most of the other politicians are usually so much at right and obtuse, you wonder were they got their high school diplomas. People would say that they got it from some Cracker Jack boxes (popcorn rubbed with some melted caramel or toffee). These use to have a small toy in their bottom. People whisper that diplomas would pop from these boxes once and a while. :bad:

The rarely few courageous politicians that have some brains, heart, and guts, are usually hardly elected, except once every fourthy of fifty years. :(

Here is the video showing how to add extensions. This is one (super unsafe) aspect I really like about gnome.

No worries on the support, I'm happy to lift the hood and climb in.....that's a big part of the fun.

brokenman,

Have you ever finish the Fat Gnome?

Jack
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.
