What happened to pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org?


This repository does not seem to work any longer since the Packages.gz file is missing and there doesn't seem to be any directory which can be added into sources.list.

Take a look here: http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/

Does anybody have an alternative repository for the latest KDE packages?

Hm... that appears to be a regular repository.

Has the KDE specific site been shut down or something? Because in "unstable" KDE 3.5 seems to be broken and I'm not able to upgrade to the latest packages.

Ah, well Maybe I'll wait for a while.

I'm running kdebase 3.5.2-1
Its this one which is broken? Have to go on the bts then because I'm living dangerously?
I have no problem for the few things I've tried.

Or are you asking for the 4.0? Which Iam looking for

new koffice has also arrived I think

It's not broken in unstable, I just upgraded yesterday to 3.5.2. Unless it broke last night!

They won't have 4.0 for quite a while yet from my perspective.

Last night nothing has changed.
Primarly gcc-4.1. Good!!

I bet its not going to be in unstable very soon but during the next months I expect it.

I thought maybe someone had done an unstable unstable package somewhere

edit:
oops seems like they expect it not before the end of this year..

Hmm... well. Whenever I try to smart-upgrade from Synaptic, all the KDE packages stay unmarked. It's looking for KDE libs 3.5.2 something and that is not getting installed. Also quanta is marked for removal...

Maybe it's a synaptic problem, but I doubt it.

I get this message when I force the upgrade individual packages and it says missing packages:
Quote:
akregator:
Depends: kdelibs4c2a (>=4:3.5.2-1) but 4:3.5.1-2 is to be installed
Depends: libkdepim1a (>=4:3.5.2) but 4:3.5.0-5 is to be installed
Depends: libqt3-mt (>=3:3.3.6) but 3:3.3.5-4 is to be installed
Maybe it has to do with the fact that I had earlier installed KDE 3.5 from the custom repository I mentioned in the first post.

It is broken in the amd64 repos. I had to compile kde-base during my install a couple days ago. kdebase and kdebase-data are the only ones that have moved on to 4.3.5.2-1 in sid and etch is to mixed right now.
