1 Hi, Gentoo.
3 How do slots work? I mean I've had a look at some ebuilds and see things
4 like this:
6 SLOT=3
8 , but with no clues as to how this gets used. Is there any handy
9 documentation about this? I've had a look round the usual places, but
10 found nothing.
12 What I really want to do is to try out Gnome 3, to see if it's like what
13 people say it is, but without endangering my current Gnome 2.32.1. If I
14 build Gnome 3, will its executable have a different name?
16 Thanks for the info!
