Thanks. I'll follow your advice. I have also downloaded and installed
1.4, then did a "pacman -Syu" using 'current' and following the
upgrade instructions. I was trying GNOME 3 and I have to say, it's
going to take me some time to get used to it, if I continue using it.
I have tried using it for only about 10 - 15 minutes and I already
found that everything seems to be much slower than GNOME 2 on the same
hardware, also I started GNOME Terminal to be able to run a pacman-g2
command and the entire GNOME desktop appeared to have hung. Only a
hard reset had me up and running again.

May you always be Frugal,
