I am sorry to hear that Mandrake and Slack ware folks are having problems. I
recommend SuSE but I do have a remark here. When I tried to upgrade my
libxml2 I used libxml2-2.5.8.tar.gz and this FAILED. Instead the SuSE site
www.suse.com in their KDE and GNOME services puts out the right rpm(s). This
got me libxml2-2.5.7-1. They also have all the qt3-3.1.2 stuff.
If one compiles from source one must be careful. I was just told in doing
gtkmm2 not to confuse the unstable with the default gtkmm-1.2. One should
use --prefix=/usr/something_else_folder_for_gtk2. Then there is
and so forth, In other words if the distribution has a regular upgrade site
then everything there is tailor made for itself. Otherwise....
(PS. The gtkmm2 is for passepartout!)
