Bummer...

Anyone managed to build Gimp 2.8 on Fedora 16, 15, 14, ...?

for more infos on that please take a look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/GIMP_2.8

What information does that provide w.r.t. the question I raised?

As long as you have the required dependencies (or build them for your machine), you should have no trouble building GIMP under any version of Fedora.

If you have a specific problem with trying to build GIMP for Fedora 17 then state it so someone on this list might be able to give you more specific help.

other requirements...python headers and something that i can't remember now for script-fu.

Install the python developer package that has the header files. Script-Fu doesn't need anything special other than what would already be installed to allow GIMP to be compiled.

Yes, I'm currently using Gimp 2.8 on Fedora 16, compiled it from source. There is a guide in this site at http://www.gimpusers.com/tutorials/compiling-gimp-for-ubuntu; it talks about Ubuntu, but pretty much everything applies to Fedora, or is easy to adapt.

Feel free to ask if you need help.

Thanks for the hints.
Historically, I always needed to upgrade babl and gegl, but 2.8 required an new version of some other libs (gtk2?) that I couldn't work out.

I finally managed to get 2.8 running on Fedora 14 (!) but it made the system instable. Can't wait for F17 to come out...

Yes, there are dependencies within the dependencies, but all of them can be installed using the same procedure; and, if you put everything under a separate directory (I used /opt/gimp-2.8, for example), dependencies included, then you should not experience any instability.

Most libs need to be built on the target system, and require other libs (and include files, and so on). This makes it very difficult to 'put everything' somewhere else. Yet, it can be done, though... I just blew it :(

Have a look at the link I provided above: there is an easy method to put everything "somewhere else"; you just have to do it step by step, so each component looks for its dependencies "somewhere else" first and then in the standard places.

When I compiled the first 2.7 versions on Fedora 15, I had to compile GTK+, GLib, and lots of dependencies more; everything went smoothly to /opt/gimp-2.7.
