[Gimp-user] CentOS packanges for 2.8?

That's why you should opt for a general usage distro. Fedora, SUSE,
Ubuntu, and probably the best IMHO, is Mint.

If you want to play with Centos and other boutique distros, be
prepared to do the hard yards.

CentOS/RHEL is not a boutique distro any more than Debian is.  I have been a Fedora user since the distro 
began but when they went with GNOME 3, I just couldn't stand it any longer.  I wanted stable and unchanging 
with long term support.  Ubuntu TLS distros... are they also boutique?  By "boutique" I presume you mean 
"small and specialized."  CentOS (rebranded RHEL) is far from fitting that definition.  (yeah, I am a little 
offended but I'll get over it.)

I have had some measure of success but not before running into countless issues with compiling and 
configuring.  Among the ones that stick with me is the lack of SVG support.  I have librsvg and librsvg-devel 
installed as well as compiled libraries I have installed from source to /opt/gimp-2.8.  The gimp compile 
process still does not detect librsvg.  Here is the summary after running ./configure:

It is also of interesting note that I have also attempted to resolve the poppler library lack without 
success.  I just don't know what is missing from all of this.
