    Any new ideas for those of us that did a d-st-upgrade opn Sarge and went
    from a perfectly working GNOME 1.4 to a seriously broken GNOME 2.2? I
    have tried upgrading to GNOME in Sid, I have tried getting back to 1.4.
    I really don't want to have to wipe my disk and reinstall from my
    Woody CD-ROM. What is the likelyhood of the dependancies finding their
    way into Sarge -- things like gnome-core >= 1.5 and gnome-help >= 1.5.
    These are the obvious culprits that I am finding. I don't know if there
    are others.

    All I want is a working system. I had just gotten GNOME to work the way
    I wanted it to and then it broke. I would prefer not to have to
    duplicate my effprts to get KDE working the way I want, or to go back to
    fvwm (although that, at least, with many fewer dependancies, is less
    likely to give me trouble while running Sarge -- It certainly never gave
    me trouble under Woody when Woody was testing).

    Has anyone gotten 2.2 to work under Sarge, or successfully returned to
    the Land of the Living with a working 1.4 after doing a dist-upgrade?

    Marc

    FWIW, here is roughly the current state of GNOME 2 in sarge. When I say
    "needs <foo>", that's shorthand for "can't be upgraded in testing until
    the source package <foo> is ready for testing too". See
    [url]http://www.debian.org/devel/testing[/url] for some of the gory details of how
    sarge/testing is managed.

    Remaining gnome/gnome-core dependencies:

    abiword control-center gnome-media gnome-terminal gnucash gnumeric
    nautilus nautilus-media

    Taking each in turn:

    abiword

    Needs nautilus and libwmf (which is a whole other can of worms but
    is getting there, providing that the upcoming release of glibc 2.3.2
    to unstable doesn't get in the way too much).

    control-center

    Ironically, needs a fixed kdelibs for reasons you probably don't
    want to know about involving pilot-link changing some of its package
    names. kdelibs has a couple of release-critical bugs. This will
    probably take longer than anything else, unless the release manager
    decides to remove kdepim from testing to break the dependency chain
    up a bit.

    I don't use enough of GNOME to be sure, but I'm guessing that this
    being missing is a major source of breakage?

    gnome-media

    Broken on a bunch of platforms, and needs gst-plugins, which needs
    jack-audio-connection-kit, which needs fixes in alsaplayer, gem, and
    pd.

    gnome-terminal

    Build problems on a few platforms, which mostly look transient.

    gnucash

    Build problems on a bunch of platforms, some of which look transient
    but some of which are more exciting test failures.

    gnumeric

    Needs gal2, which just has a transient-looking build problem on one
    architecture. Should be ready soon.

    nautilus

    Needs cdparanoia, which is just doing its 10 days of time in
    unstable. Should be available within a week with any luck.

    nautilus-media

    Needs gst-plugins and nautilus, see above; build problem on arm
    which was a gtk+2.0 problem, now fixed.

    Anyway, most people here probably don't care about the details, but I
    thought it might be useful to say what's going on with GNOME in testing
    since a lot of people on this list run it. The situation above is
    actually markedly improved since the last time I looked at this
    ([url]http://lists.debian.org/debian-release-0306/msg00008.html[/url]).

    Cheers,
