Installing newer version of GNOME?

Hi. I am wondering if there is an easy way to install a newer version of GNOME on CentOS 4.5? For KDE, you can install the KDE packages provided by the kde-redhat repo to bring it up to the latest version. I wonder if the same thing can be done with GNOME through another third-party repo? Thanks, Dai

Troube with kernel 2.6.9-55.EL (CentOS 4.5)

Namely, it won't mount any Windows share anymore - either as smbfs or cifs. I have a directory shared on my XP box at work and have always been able t...

Oops, wrong forum! My apologies.

I will post it to the appropriate forum (i.e. CentOS 4).
