HI.
I'm running squeeze and want to upgrade the gnome
desktop to the latest version.
How do I do that?

Squeeze is stable and packages for the stable branch do not tend to be
updated so much. Even less for the complete desktop environment.

If you want to keep a stable system, I would maintain your current gnome
version.

Default updating gnome

Hi.
Ok, then I stick with squeeze, since the installer doesn't work at all.
Where can I do a bug repport about this?

Could you look up a thing for me?
Since I'm blind I use a screen reader called orca.
http://live.gnome.org/orca
I want a later version.
/Kristoffer
Could you look up if there is a way to upgrade this?
