2<title>Introduction to <application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application></title>
3
4<para>This chapter attempts to install a complete
5<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>-&gnome-version; desktop
6environment and a limited
7<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> 1.4 library environment that is
8sufficient to run <application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> 1.4 applications included in this book. The
9order of the pages are meant to follow the build order defined by the
10GNOME development team as published in the <ulink
11url="http://www.gnome.org/start/&gnome-version;/notes/rninstallation.html">release notes</ulink>, with two exceptions. If a package is in the release notes build list, but not in this chapter, it has been installed elsewhere in the book.</para>
12
13<para>The installation of <application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>-&gnome-version; is a large undertaking and one we would
14like to see you complete with the least amount of stress. One
15of our first goals in this installation is to protect your previously
16installed software, especially if you are testing
17<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> on your machine.
18<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>-&gnome-version; packages utilize the --prefix= option for configure, so we will
19use that and an Environment variable (<envar>GNOME_PREFIX</envar>) to add flexibility to
20the install.</para>
21
22<para>If you know that you want
23<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> as your desktop, it is recommended that
24you install with --prefix=/usr. If you are not sure that you are going
25to keep <application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> on your installation, it is recommended that you install with
26--prefix=/opt/gnome-&gnome-version;. Setting the Environment variable and the
27additional edits required by the second option are covered on the
28pre-installation page.</para>
29
30<para>If you choose the second option, removal of
31<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>-&gnome-version; is as easy
32as removing the edits from the pre-installation page and issuing the
33following command:</para>
34<screen><userinput><command>rm /opt/gnome-&gnome-version; -r </command></userinput></screen>
35
36<para>If your system was completely built per <acronym>LFS</acronym> and
37<acronym>BLFS</acronym>
38instructions, you have a very good chance of using
39<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>-&gnome-version;
40after your first install. If you are a typical <acronym>LFS</acronym> user, you have made
41modifications to the instructions along the way knowing that you have to
42take those modifications into account on future installations. You
43should have no problems integrating
44<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>-&gnome-version; into your unique setup, but
45you will have 28 to 33 packages installed before you can run
46<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>
47through any testing (assuming your window manager is preinstalled and
48tested). We would anticipate that you will be rebuilding
49<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> at least
50once to make adjustments for your setup.</para>
51
52<para>If you are building a
53<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> 1.4 desktop environment, you would
54install only those libraries in the
55<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> 1.4 chapter
56<emphasis>and</emphasis> any dependencies listed on those pages, whether
57labeled or not. <application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> packages without pages are simply installed with:
58<screen><command>./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome &amp;&amp;
59make &amp;&amp;
60make install</command></screen>
61These instructions are simplistic to facilitate removal of
62<application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> 1.4
63from <acronym>BLFS</acronym> systems when it is no longer necessary. These instructions
64may be refined later to comply with <acronym>BLFS</acronym> standards for file locations,
65specifically <filename class='directory'>/opt/gnome/etc</filename> to
66<filename class='directory'>/etc</filename> and <filename
67class='directory'>/opt/gnome/var</filename> to
68<filename class='directory'>/var</filename>. You should consider using
69the <application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application> 1.4 hint
70located at <ulink url="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/"/> if you
71have no interest in <application><acronym>GNOME</acronym></application>-&gnome-version;.</para>
