    Poll to choose DE for X32 Spin

    Gnome, KDE, LXDE, XFCE? What's your favorite?

    EDIT:

    In case it wasn't clear, I'm going to make a Linux Spin with all the Berhinger stuff installed and ready to go for X32-Edit and doing some basic multitrack recording. The Desktop we choose doesn't really matter to me, so I thought I'd put it to a vote... hence the poll. =)

    Sorry Brian, (crazy busy)

    My vote is for Gnome. I tried KDE first. But it didn't like your package. It also reported that I had a "broken BIOS". So I think there was a problem with that version of KDE. Gnome and the X32-Edit is working just fine, thanks to your install package. Thanks again. Now I have a dual boot Windows Vista Business 6 and Fedora (Gnome) on my HP 2530p laptop. Just waiting for the X32 Rack to be available.

    W00t! Someone else voted! Looks like gnome is on a roll. We'll see what happens when time runs out.

    On a side note Fedora Jam became official today.

    Brian, have you tried that spin yet? I'm tempted to try it, even though it is the KDE Desktop.

    I haven't, but I have it downloaded.

    I spent the morning helping our tech install some lighting at the Church, but hopefully I'll get some time tomorrow. =)

    Brian,

    I went ahead and installed Fedora Jam (after a few glitches) and really like it. But your RPM package failed (unfortunately it didn't give any details, just said it failed). So I simply downloaded the X32-Edit app, assigned the icon and made a link on the desktop (see you can teach an old dog new tricks ).

    Yeah the KDE installer has a bug where it says it fails, but it actually installs anyways. You can also log in as root and run "yum localinstall /path/to/.rpm" which will work as well.
