Shalom,

HP has told me officially and unofficially, no plans to support it.

Gnome is however open source software. if you really want it, you can compile it.

Re: gnome 2.x on hp-ux 11.11

gnome is not just one package, it is a bunch of packages/software that needs to be compiled all depending on several libs from and outside the gnome project.

i've done it before (on linux), but it is not a process you can call enjoyable.

and that is when all works as expected, i expect a bunch of those libs/apps will have problems compiling on hpux and will need to be adjusted/patched.
