Title: Gnome in dCore
Post by: Jason W on January 22, 2016, 06:22:13 PM
Gnome was a a blocked package as it did not work as is in the past, but now with the current dependency resolution, it works well on dCore-wily.  So removed from the blocked package list.

Wow that's pretty amazing. Not sure how much you tested, were there limitations with Gnome and assosicated packages or was functionality similar to what would be expect running a full distribution?

Thanks sm8ps for updating the FAQ and wiki, did you also want to note it here?

It was actually dCore-jessie that I ran gnome.  I have not run Gnome in years, but it seemed like it was working correctly.

Just did. Thanks for the pointer!
And I do think this is pretty amazing, too. I am tempted to try it out myself and, come to think of it, there is no reason not to, considering the system won't be cluttered by 1001 tools one cannot get rid of anymore. Ain't that sweet!

Sweet that it can be done, personally will never use a DE again except maybe MATE.

This section of FAQ also updated:
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:faq#do_all_debian_and_ubuntu_packages_work_with_dcore

Curious about a FAQ/wiki entry, dCore is known to run Xfce?

If so, then of the major DEs maybe just KDE, Unity and MATE not yet working or confirmed.

Same here. Tested, anybody?   ;)
