I have been watching the list talking about Gimp 2. and would like to try it.

Good luck :)

1. Am using Mandrake 9.1, and will use rpmdrake, will these Rpm's be suitable for it?

I'm not sure.

2. If they are suitable, is there any particular order I should install them in?

I know when I was running an RPM based system, I used to try to install the last one first, get the list of dependencies, and install them in order until things worked. That's not an optimal solution :)

The approximate order of installation should be


3. Do I need to install the Rpm's marked as devel. e.g. atk-devel-1.6.0-1.i386.rpm ?

Not unless you plan on compiling the GIMP from source. Nor do you need automake or autoconf, unless you plan to build from CVS.

4. Do I need to remove any files relating to the version I am now using?
I have read on this list that the 2 versions will co-exist.

You don't need to remove anything. It is possible that your packaging system won't like having 2 versions of the GIMP installed, but IIRC there is a way to force RPM to install a new copy alongside the old one, rather than have it replace it.

Hope this helps,
