I have a redhat 6.2 machine next to me, with gnome 1.4 beta 1 on it.
It was easy to put the new gnome on it using the red-carpet program
and a highspeed internet connection. However, I didn't have a ton of
already-compiled gnome apps waiting to fall apart when I upgraded the
libraries out from underneath them - perhaps this would have made a
difference, I don't know.

It's in a way kind of a shame that so many gnome apps are in a
near-permanent state of "must run a bleeding edge release of gnome to
use this app". EG, I upgraded to redhat 7 hoping I'd then have a
recent enough gnome to run galeon, and to my surprise I discovered
that even this wasn't recent enough. Amazing. I bought the CD about
a week after the release, and it was already "too old".
