It appears that most if not all packages are in the gnome overlay. I am just wondering how may of you have tested it? Any serious problems. If all goes well I plan to upgrade later this week.

i cannot say i have tested it, i just added the overlay, unmasked some stuff, updated my minimal gnome install and logged in : all seems to be working so far.
gentoo-gnome-status page doesn´t look bad and there aren´t many bugs open ( yet, i guess ...).

Also keep an eye on http://git.overlays.gentoo.org/gitweb/?p=proj/gnome.git;a=tree;f=status;hb=HEAD and eva´s blog ;)

just in case you missed sth. of the above.

cheers

I got everything installed. I had to upgrade to libtool-2.2 because libtool-1.5.X could not build gnome-extra/gnome-media-2.26. Also app-text/poppler was a problem. I had 10.5 installed but 10.4 wanted to be installed and then causing a nasty circular dependency problem. I finally found the solution was to unmask the following packages

Code:
=virtual/poppler-glib-0.10.5*
=virtual/poppler-0.10.5*


There also was a circular dependency problem with

Code:
net-libs/libsoup-2.26.0.9
net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.1.3
net-libs/libproxy-0.2.3


I believe my solution was to emerge dev-libs/icu-3.8.1-r1 and build net-libs/libproxy-0.2.3 first with USE="-webkit"

After these two circular dependency problems were solved all the only problem was gnome-media which I discussed above.

That and firefox needed to be rebuilt because of the following error:

Code:
ohn@jmd0 /auto/home/john $ firefox
Could not find compatible GRE between version 1.9.0.7 and 1.9.0.7.
