Just a warning with two version of GNOME 2 installed on a system. I did
an install on RedHat 8 for a GNOME 2 presentation I did at my local
lug. When logging in under the same username the garnome build would
screw up the session for the 2.0 redhat build to a point that nothing
showed up in the application menus or vfolders. Logging on as a
different user would get me a working 2.0 desktop as long as I didn't
use garnome under that user.
I use jhbuild on my main Debian system and I rarely have a problem
except with individual apps.
