BlueBubble Errata

The repository was published yesterday, as well as “The Fine Manual“. I’ve updated TFM and the FAQ a few times throughout these days to clear things up and fix some typos I had, just thought I’d let you know.

I’m trying to build the ISOs I promised,and Valent Turkovic from Fusion Linux suggested that it would be better if I added “Obsoletes: {new-package}” instead of “Conflicts: {new-package}”.

What this means is that while  I originally advertised the repository as being compatible with both old and new packages, if I upload these RPMs, the next time you yum-update, it’ll replace nautilus, gedit and gnome-terminal with the ‘classic’ versions, if you have the repository enabled. The ‘classic’ versions are functional, but perhaps you wanted the classic panel look & feel, while staying with “new” versions of gedit and gnome-terminal.

I’m going to push these RPMs sometime during the weekend, as I’m still rebuilding both 32bit and 64bit packages, and include a couple of Applets I finally got working. Just thought I’d give everyone a heads-up in case this isn’t desired, to please let me know so I can figure something out.

Thanks for your interest!

    Have you considered yum-priorities?

    It may be an equally gnarly option.

    Looking forward to trying out BlueBubble, thanks!
