    66sufficient to run Gnome 1.4 applications included in this book. The
    77order of the pages are meant to follow the build order defined by the
    8 Gnome2 development team as published in the <ulink url="">release notes</ulink>.</para>
     8Gnome2 development team as published in the <ulink url="">release notes</ulink>.  If a package is in the release notes build list, but not in this chapter, it has been installed elsewhere in the book.</para>
    10 <warning><para>While we have been successful in building Gnome2 from these
    11 instructions, we have also experienced several oddities in compiling and
    12 running these applications.  If these are build issues, watch for
    13 adjustments to the instructions as we better understand this
    14 product.</para></warning>
     10<para>The installation of Gnome2 is a large undertaking and one we would
     11very much like to see you complete with the least amount of stress. One
     12of our first goals in this installation is to protect your previously
     13installed software.  For absolute protection, we would construct a
     14chroot jail for the installation, but since Gnome2 packages utilize the
     15--prefix= option for configure, we will use that to fulfill our goal.
     16There are two locations usable for our purposes,
     17<filename>/usr/local</filename> and <filename>/opt/package</filename>.
     18Since <filename>/usr/local</filename> is not utilized any where in the
     19BLFS book, installation there would closely parallel a Gnome2
     20installation using --prefix=/usr.  However, it is not
     21entirely safe for us to assume that your installation does not have any
     22files in <filename>/usr/local</filename>.  Therefore we are going to
     23install with --prefix=/opt/gnome2.  This will require additional edits
     24which are covered on the pre-installation page.  Removal of Gnome2 for
     25any reason is as easy as removing the edits from the pre-installation
     26page and issue the following commands:
     27<screen><userinput>rm /opt/gnome2 -r &amp;&amp;
     28rm /etc/gnome -r</userinput></screen></para>
     30<para>If your system was completely built per LFS 4.0 and BLFS
     31instructions, you have a very good chance of using Gnome2
     32after your first install.  If you are a typical LFS user, you have made
     33modifications to the instructions along the way knowing that you have to
     34take those modifications into account on future installations.  You
     35should have no problems integrating Gnome2 into your unique setup, but
     36you will have 28 to 33 packages installed before you can run Gnome
     37through any testing (assuming your window manager is preinstalled and
     38tested). We would anticipate that you will be rebuilding gnome at least
     39once to make adjustments for your setup. If this is the only chapter you
     40are utilizing from the BLFS book, we think you should be successful by
     41following these instructions, but you may find problems along the way
     42that we may or may not be able to help you though on the blfs-support mailing
    1645<para>If you don't need the Gnome 1.4 library environment, you may skip
    2150listed on those pages whether labeled or not. Gnome packages without
    2251pages are simply installed with:
    23 <screen>./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome &amp;&amp;
     52<screen><userinput>./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome &amp;&amp;
    2453make &amp;&amp;
    25 make install</screen>
     54make install</userinput></screen>
    2655These instructions are simplistic to facilitate removal of Gnome 1.4
    2756from BLFS systems when it is no longer necessary.  These instructions
    3362have no interest in Gnome2.</para>
     64<para>At this time, we feel that Gnome2 should be left in <filename>/opt/gnome2</filename>, but you can easily adjust the --prefix= option to your
     65chosen destination. This can be done from the start or after a trial
