Fedora Needs Your Help Testing GNOME 3.0
Phoronix: Fedora Needs Your Help Testing GNOME 3.0
With Canonical ditching the GNOME 3.0 Shell in favor of their custom-developed Unity Desktop, one of the first Linux distributions where you'll see GNOME 3.0 shipping in full "out of the box" is Fedora 15. Fedora 15 is set to be released at the end of May, but a beta release happens to be coming out today. Additionally, this Thursday they're looking for your help in testing out GNOME 3.0...
it would be much easier for everyone, if...
If Gnome developers made some sort of source code/bin package that can run standalone on target machine(providing no X running).
Lets say: you download code, unpack it, compile it in one folder and try executable from there, instead of system wide installation.
I'd love to try out gnome, but i dont feel like firing up Live CD and from KVM - whole thing fails, as it seems hardware acceleration IS REQUIREMENT!
So those with worse hardware - it will simply fail!
