Hello allWhat are the nasty bugs preventing the release of the PCLinuxOS XFCE version? Any work-arounds available?
Three nasty bugs, sittin' on the wall.If one nasty bug should accidentally fall...
No it has not been officially released by PCLinuxOS because of 3 nasty bugs that need to be addressed.
LXDE is fairly stable. XFCE 4.8 has some bugs I don't like. When they are fixed, the XFCE 4.8 packages will be moved into updates. Being the nice guy that I am I put the 4.8 packages up in a separate area for those who might want to use them fully aware they might not be 100% ready for primetime.
I installed of the latest pclinux phoenix livecd (march 2011) and did regular updates. I thought i got xfce 4.8 but no. I needed to add the xfce to the repo section to get xfce 4.8.This is a little quirky. i also have a box with lxde - Do we need to 'lxde' to the the repo section as well?
