RE: Binary RPM packages for RedHat 7.3

Title: Message
Hi Daniel.
I'm glad you pointed that out. I've been starting to compile all the stuff myself, then I stopped and thought (maybe after the 6th or 7th package out of 60) what the hell am I doing here? There's better things to do than wasting my time with unfinished things. I want to have something that doesn't mess up the whole system. I'm feeling a bit stupid that I've also started to delete some "old" Gnome 1.4 packages - oh my god, that was naive.
... I wrote a lot of horrible thoughts down here - about Linux in general, spare time programmers, desktops - but I don't really care and deleted everything ...
Thanks for your help, Daniel. I think we might have to wait on the next RedHat distribution.
Best regards,

Unfortunately, no.  I have tried the Gnome2 channel but it's really just snapshot versions and very prone to being screwed up in some way or another.  So I have aborted the use of that until they present official 2.x Gnome packages.  Don't know how long it will take, but I'm with you for wanting to stay with RPM as much as possible.  Although, if you on occasion like to experience a challenge mentally, try tracking down dependencies and stuff after you have used --force indiscriminately. :) 
I have definitely learned a lot through those experiences.  I've had Gnome break on me many times but now I'm starting to get a feel for it's innards.  Imagine crashing the system in some way and then not having Nautilus come up?  I had no idea why my wallpaper didn't come back.  Or imagine running "gmc" while Nautilus is active and they're both trying to be the desktop manager?  Oh the fun I had...

I'm really confused and have to apologize for my small knowledge about different package formats that already might cover my needs.
I'm wondering if there are any binary packages of the Gnome2 release for RedHat 7.3 available for download. I already tried the standard source distribution, but it's more than horrible to build it on your own.
I can't wait to see the release version of Gnome2 running, so please help.
Many thanks in advance.
Best regards,
