I've already posted this problem on KDE forums but I haven't found any solution yet, so I'm trying posting here.
I'm trying to compile and use KDE 4.2.1 on a Suse 9.3 box. I've been manually upgrading the software on this installation by compiling new versions over the years. The installation is now quite hybrid but everything is working fine, the actual KDE 3.5, Gnome, GTK applications, etc.
I started building KDE4 following the instructions on this page:
Prepared a user "kde4test" with all the bashrc changes and followed this order of build (using gcc411):
qt-copy - build & install ok
kdesupport-943891 - needed to force declaration of java paths, but build and install ok.
phonon-4.3.1 - build & install ok
kdelibs-4.2.1 - build & install ok
kdepimlibs-4.2.1 - build & install ok
kdebase-4.2.1 - build & install ok
kdebase-runtime-4.2.1 - build & install ok
kdebase-workspace-4.2.1 - had to disable X11 Screensaver extension to be able to compile, but build and install ok
Modified the /opt/kde4/bin/kde4 script so I'm to run konqueror, kwrite and stuff from KDE4 on KDE35.
To test the workspace I've modified the .xinitrc to match the new KDE4 and used startx.
It loads up a bit, show the desktop for an instant but the screen refreshes and the box telling that plasm crashed shows up.
Using ALT-F2 I can run all the KDE4 software but plasma. I've also compiled amarok 2.0 and it's working fine. My problem seems to be only with plasma. Running "kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental" doesn't solve anything ...
Here's some files ...
Plasma output (running from a konsole):
strace -f plasma (big file 2mb):
Any help would be appreciated.
