Re: [Gimp-user] 2.8 rc1 on XP

A little more info.
If I cd to the bin directory and run
  gimp-2.8.exe -v
I see the following:

GNU Image Manipulation Program version 2.8.0-RC1
git-describe: Unknown, shouldn't happen

using GEGL version 0.2.0 (compiled against version 0.2.0)
using GLib version 2.30.2 (compiled against version 2.30.2)
using GdkPixbuf version 2.24.1 (compiled against version 2.24.1)
using GTK+ version 2.24.10 (compiled against version 2.24.10)
using Pango version 1.29.4 (compiled against version 1.29.4)
using Fontconfig version 2.8.0 (compiled against version 2.8.0)
using Cairo version 1.10.2 (compiled against version 1.10.2)
(Type any character to close this window)

Unfortunately, I haven't got a C debugging environment,
so I'm kinda hamstrung.

BTW, this is on an amd athlon xp, but I doubt that has anything to do with it.

Is the git-describe line the point where it's exiting,
or is that just information and it should continue executing?

Thanks for any ideas,

It doesn't, and it shouldn't - desktop is not something that the installer
should touch.

    It creates only a single entry in the start menu, labelled "GIMP 2".

That is correct - with the new Start Menu in Vista and 7, opening
subfolders is quite annoying, and since uninstall functionality is provided
through the Programs and Features applet in Control Panel, there's really
no need to clutter the Start Menu.

A possible issue -- this is running booted from an "F:" drive, with no
"C:" or "D:" drive on the machine.

Shouldn't be a problem, I've got a similar setup.
