Re: Installing specific versions of GNOME (Arch?)

Hi all,

ARM - great! Unfortunately the oldest snapshot is 31 August which is still 3.8 not 3.6 (should have thought of that before meticulously upgrading my 3.4 machine to...3.8 :P)
So - Fedora it is! And I'll be careful to take an Arch snapshot whenever gnome-shell updates :) (i prefer arch)

Not too surprising.

I prefer Arch and I notice they still have a snapshot from a few months ago available (3.10 shouldn't have been on it yet), so I can try that (though since gnome-shell does not ship with Arch I suspect I will get the same problem that when I install it, it will update it to 3.10 automatically). Failing that, I'll just grab Fedora or Mageia.

As people pointed out, you may have luck using the arch roll back machine.

Start from your 3.4 version, edit /etc/pacman.conf and add a line to point to the day you want to upgrade to, see wiki for this. Then pacman -Syu should do the magic.
