Unfortunately the installer does not work on my system. Gives an error
about not finding a font (don't remember which one). I also read that
others were having trouble uninstalling xfce with this which I rather not
deal with. I find it much better to make my own rpms from the sources but
again my question is:
What is the build order? Not all of the sources are as the online docs
say. I just want to build it myself. Anyone.
