Alien's KDE 4.5.3 packages


I was running Alien's KDE 4.5.3 packages and upgraded to current last night letting it downgrade my kde. I had to remove my .kde directory to stop krunner segfaulting when starting X.

Will the 4.5.3 packages run ok with current as it is now or do i need to wait until they are rebuilt?

I upgraded my laptop to -current, with KDE 4.5.3 already there, and had no issues with krunner.

I can no longer recreate the problem because like a fool i forgot to rm the new .kde folder so when i moved the old one i just lost it.

I will just have to set everything up again!

I have some issues : at first after upgrading to latest -current, KDE couldn't start anymore as liblzma.so.0 was missing.
A quick symlink to /lib64/liblzma.so.5.0.0 solved that.
But now there seems to be part of KDE System Settings missing, particularly in the Appearance of the desktop : no entry anymore to set the desktops fonts, the icon style, etc.
I guess a rebuild will be needed, though I suppose it can wait for the actuel -current inclusion.
On the sidenote, using libdrm, mesa and the open ATI driver, all from git using gallium, I find the whole desktop much snappier on both my laptop with R300 chip and my desktop with R600. Just still need to disable blur, but I really don't mind.

I had an issue where kde would not run as a normal user. Set /usr/bin/startx to 4755 although I doubt this had any effect because X was running - it's kde that would not start for my non-root user ( root login worked fine ). I rebooted and working - v strange.

@rvdboom: upgrading aaa_elflibs should fix your liblzma problem. See the Changelog for the reason

You didnt upgrade aaa_elflibs so you did it wrong. Check the slackpkg configuration files.
