I'm clearly late to the party, but I've finally installed BLAG 140K and I really like the look and feel of it - the Samurai splash screen, the surreal urban landscape wallpaper, etc. I've grown accustomed to using XFCE on Debian, and thought it would be supported on BLAG, but when I attempt to install I see the following:

Code:
[root@brixton][~]# yum groupinstall xfce4
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Group Process
blag140k-fedora/group_gz                                 |  37 kB     00:00     
Warning: Group xfce4 does not exist.
No packages in any requested group available to install or update


Am I not using the correct syntax? Or do I, perhaps, need another repo?

try:
Code:
#yum groupinstall xfce

should work!
Next blag release should be xfce by default.

Thanks for the quick reply! Unfortunately, no joy...

Code:
[root@brixton][/export]# yum groupinstall xfce
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Group Process
Warning: Group xfce does not exist.
No packages in any requested group available to install or update


As a matter of a fact, "yum grouplist" returns no groups.

it works for me! Maybe blag.fsf server problem, one more time.
Try to use fedora repo:
#gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo

Code:
[fedora]
name=FEDORA
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/14/Everything/x86_64/os/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

and
#gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo
Code:
[fedora-updates]
name=FEDORA-UPDATES
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/14/x86_64/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0


Of course, replace x86_64 by i386 if you don't use 64bits.

But blag.fsf server seems to work and xfce packages are on it. x86_64 and i386.
Edit: you're right! it doesn't work with blag.fsf repo. Just tried it on blag 140k x86_64

PS: wrote to the mailing-list to signal that.

That did the trick! I only had the blag.repo enabled. Once I configured the fedora and fedora-updates repo, I was able to install XFCE. Thanks!

really? sounds great to me since I think the usability/configuration of xfce is already one of the best... and also considering that no all the people need (i don't) fancy windows managers to everyday tasks

you may load blag icons theme updated from there. Thanks to veganix!

It is built for XFCE.
