try the dygnome 0.8 in iso-test in current we are considering this as the first alpha in vl-6.0. no bug reports but early impressions would be good. Actually bug reports are ok too. Uel will be off for a week so we can accumulate impressions and bugs for him to digest on his return.............:)

cheers,

first impression of dygnome-0.8 pretty good it's a good gnome layout , few annoyances though , to be expected I suppose.

1. slapt-get /gslapt will not do an --update it just stalls when i try it no error message.
2. no testing repository listed in slapt-get/slapt-getrc

so can't try programs I run every day.

more to come in general I like it.  but will play more and see
nice work :)

the more I use dygnome 0.8 the more I like it.

grows on you... nice layout etc.   the slapt-get/gslapt problem seems to have resolved itself so maybe it was a server problem.

will keep it for awhile.
Thanks,
Dave

dygnome? Kewl! I'll need to shuffle some stuff around and create another partition to give it a whirl.
