I am running a Red Hat 9.0 system that currently has GIMP 1.2.3 installed on it. I'd like to check out 2.0 and have been trying to figure out how to get it together. I haven't compiled much large, involved software yet so I am running into some fundamental questions.
I strongly suggest you don't compile GIMP from source then but use a precompiled binary. http://xach.com/ has RPMs for RedHat 9.0. Unfortunately not 2.0.1 yet but you could at least install all the dependencies from there and compile only GIMP. That will save you some major troubles. Getting all the dependencies compiled from source requires a good deal of experience building software from source.
Thanks for the quick response and the link to the RPMs. Those should be very helpful. Did I miss this on gimp.org somehow?
>Secondly, in the GIMP ftp directory I saw a patch for 2.0.1. What is this patch for and do I need it?
It's the patch to update gimp-2.0.0 to gimp-2.0.1. Useful for people who downloaded gimp-2.0.0 earlier.
Oh, ok, good to know.
