First off, you *need* both versions of GTK+ (1.0.x and 1.1.x for Gimp
and GNOME to work correctly). Unlike Windows' DLHell, libraries in Linux
can coexist just fine with earlier versions of the same library. Use
"rpm -i" for the libraries you need two versions of (like GTK+, Ncurses,
Secondly, the current GNOME version is 0.30, not 0.20.
Finally, you can easily find out which packages contain the libs you
need at [http://rufus.w3.org/linux/RPM/]. Simply drill down to the
packages you want to install, and it will give you a list of
dependencies the package you want has, which happen to be links to lists
of packages that supply the needed file(s).
Try sorting by name, that's the easiest way to find things there.
