Re: GNOME libs 1.0.7 has been released

I for one would appreciate it if RPMs were produced - perhaps not for 
every release but at reasonbly regular intervals.

I have tried compiling the downloaded source but have got error 
messages and I am not technically competent enough to work out what 
the errors really mean and how to fix them. I have also noticed that 
compiled source can sometimes install in different directories from 
the original RPMs and this can cause problems.
