    I am not entirely sure that you will have a choice.
    Compiling up Gnome on your own is generally impossible unless you have a lot of experience, or a ports type system to patch / configure the source for you.

    It works the other way too. For example it is generally unlikely you could use an older version of Gnome either.

    So all I can really suggest is either wait it out, or pick a simpler window manager if you want bleeding edge GUI stuff on Fedora

    Re: Installing Gnome 3.4 on fedora 16!

    I'd suggest you might want to wait for Gnome 3.4 based on the Gnome team admonishment on their release announcement:

    "Those wanting to try GNOME 3.4 are advised to wait until it is made available through distributions. More information http://www.gnome.org/getting-gnome/ can be found on our website.

    Read the press release: http://www.gnome.org/press/2012/03/g...-leap-forward/"

    This contains links to the release notes, etc.

    Cheers!

    Jim

    you cannot install Gnome3.4 on an older release. you will have to install F17 and pray that it works

    though i would suggest waitingf for F18 an bypass F17, i think F17 is gonna be a Disaster. IMO the Kernel is Bug Riddled

    The kernel? F16 is using the same kernel as F17, and I haven't noticed any kernel oopses in either.

    Ah, I've seen those too. Intel graphics may suck at performance, but they do seem to have fewer problems.

    I met it before, the kernel panic, and after reinstalling kernel, the problem is solved. So I don't really think the problem is with the kernel itself, maybe the updating process wasn't designed thoughtful enough. Personally I'm looking forward to f17, and sincerely hope that the updating processing would be just as seamly as the updating from 15 to 16.
