2004-04-06 Fedora Tips 52:
Here is how you can install GIMP 2.0
1. Remove Gimp 1. yum remove gimp. (this will also remove any dependencies)
*Note* This may remove sane-frontends just reinstall it when your done.
2. Install lcms and libexif. libexif may already be installed. If not yum install libexif will do the trick. If you dont have dag setup in your yum.conf then you can get the libexif from:
http://apt.sw.be/redhat/fc1/en/i386/RPMS.dag/libexif-0.5.12-2.rhfc1.dag.i386.rpmlcms can be found here:
http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/fedora/fedora/redhat/9/i386/RPMS.stable/lcms-1.11-0.fdr.3.rh90.i386.rpm3. Get Gimp 2 from: ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/users/drc/gimp-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh gimp-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm4. If sane-frontends was removed in step 1, just install it now.
yum install sane-frontendsThats it.. Enjoy the new Gimp 2.0 - submitted by Wayne Leutwyler
