GNOME 2.2.1 patches available for test

Hi, all!
After a long and hard built, we've got nearly all GNOME 2.2.1 packages built and run on cygwin,
and included newly XFree86 packages freetype 2.1.3, fontconfig 2.1, Xft 2.0.1.
They are glib2, GTK+2, atk, pango, linc, ORBit2, bonobo-activation, etc... about all the packages of base
GNOME 2.2.1 desktop (get the sources from\).
We also get metacity window manager and nautilus file manager to work, and some applications like gaim, gedit, ggv, etc.
Well, there are so many of bugs :-( and not stable yet, but, the GNOME 2.2 on cygwin is ready to run!

Well, I'll be on a long-term business trip right now, so I have no time to find out the bugs and
upload binary packeages, sorry, please wait...
However I have uploaded the patches on,
they can get the sources *compiled*. If you are interest in GNOME2 on cygwin , you can try these patches,
and try to find out the BUGs!

I've uploaded some screenshots on

GNOME 2.2.1 on Cygwin Starting up...

The GNOME 2.2.1 Desktop on Cygwin (with gaim, gnome-terminal run)

The Nautilus File Manager

Well, lots of functions not work presently.

The GNOME 2.2.1 Desktop use zh_CN locale (Simplified Chinese, running gedit,
use miniChinput Input Method Server to input Chinese text.)

The Nautilus File Manager use zh_CN locale (Simplified Chinese).

I'm converting the screenshots files from BMP to PNG use GIMP 1.2.3 ;-) !
