You have two choices. Allow the garnome scripts to kill all existing
dbus, hal, and avahi processes and spawn its own versions. This will
assure compatibility with all garnome features.
See the README file for full examples.
Although I'm not 100% sure (I don't want to test before I got some
suggestions from here), I believe this method will affect other users on
the same Linux box.
OR, here's what I do as I also have dbus, hal, and avahi running.
1) Be sure to have proper versions of all running.
2) Adjust the garnome startup scripts to avoid killing and restarting
garnome's versions of dbus, hal, and avahi. This will ensure that your
versions are running.
3) Adjust the garnome startup script to something similar to this:
# take this line out because it hard codes in the garnome path
# replace it simply with this
export PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH PYTHONPATH PKG_CONFIG_PATH \
GDK_USE_XFT XDG_DATA_DIRS XDG_CONFIG_DIRS MANPATH DBUS_LAUNCH
exec $DBUS_LAUNCH $GARNOME/bin/gnome-session
This way is not good enough for me too. But thanks anyway.
Unless Garnome itself is buggy, I hope I can have two independent
'stable' GNOME co-exist on my Linux box, so users can choose to have
up-to-date GNOME experiences.
The perfect solution I can think at this moment is running GARNOME
on Xnest/Xephr or XClient using other display number eg :
1.0 or :2.0.
Or maybe chroot solution ... anyone has successfully done this ?
If GARNOME is not designed for this kind of use, I think I will simply
setup another Linux box to test new GNOME.
Depending on how you use garnome, this approach may work flawlessly, OR
you may have things break here and there. By removing these three core
programs, you are introducing a lot of moving parts to the process.
For my uses (I run gnome applications mostly without running gnome), I
have no problems with system-wide versions of dbus, hal, and avahi.
