Now i know why Slackware removed GNOME in the past. Maintaining GNOME packages requires a lot of efforts, since new packages will most likely add new dependencies and it keeps growing and growing on each release.

I tried to compile Anjuta which uses some of the GNOME libraries and the list of requirement is tremendous. That doesn't count the dependencies of the Anjuta's dependencies package. So, if being counted in total, i must install and configure like 15 packages. Geez....

Probably i should call this GNOME Hell instead :)
