Just one more thing about gnome being more slow/buggy on gentoo - it might have been about your CFLAGS (-O3 uses more ram and is a bit more buggy but is however faster when it comes to CPU usage, while -Os uses less ram/diskspace and is less buggy, -O0 is the slow but definitive working option...) and USE-flags (lots of USE-flags = bunch of features, but more code). Just a thought, it may aswell have been other reasons.

I believe I had it set at O2 for cflags, I was gonna recompile the system with --newuse but the crazy circular dependancies that wanna downgrade dbus hal and ivman/pmount then re-upgrade them later kinda steered me away (since the older dbus/hal didnt work, and the new ones did, and 2.12 wants them) n kinda lost interest in running gentoo now that I dont have as much time to constantly be messing with it...

anyways, on topic with the story, anybody tried gnome 2.12 on solaris/thoughts?

Is the difference between O2 and O3 really perceivable? I doubt it!
