View Full Version : Can I Partially Upgrade To FC4T?
17th April 2005, 07:55 PM
I really only want Gnome 2.10 and Openoffice 2.0, that's really it, can i just update those two things without disturbing anything else?

Gnome sounds like death to attempt. However, you can get the Openoffice beta RPMs from openoffice.org, they install just fine (and coeexist with FC3 openoffice; they each have an entry under the Office menu in your graphical environment after the install).
Seriously, trying to use FC4 gnome on FC3 is likely doom, DOOM D O O M I tell you!!!

Yeah I was able to get OOO installed, so that's cool, but I would really like Gnome 2.10, last time I tried it I had to reinstall the OS.
Do you know anything about what may cause the audio to sound like crap? (When playing music)

Yeah - my stepson's taste in music.

Gnome 2.10 for Fedora is heavily optimized with gcc4 therefore you will have a greater chance to have your update messed up. I suggest to install FC4T2 on a separate partition.
Concerning the sound issue, I haven't encountered that issue as it works perfectly on my system. I gues it depends of sound board.

Well I guess I can't get Gnome 2.10 right now, but is Test 2 stable enough for general use?

Yes, it is. I suggest to not update up2date for Fedora Core 4 Test 2 due to a bug that prevents to use foward button.

Packages with mp3 supports are ready for Fedora Core 4 yet as final release will be out in June. With the new gcc4 compilation, many package are not compatible because they were compiled with gcc3.x. Maybe you should try using Realplayer as a temporaly solution.
