Thanks for the reply. Here you go - anything abnormal?

Rebuilding KDE could take weeks on that system
. Anyway, armedslack-current is pretty up-to-date with slackware-current. Going by the changelog, there doesn't seem to have been much change KDE-wise, since the 13.37 release. So I doubt upgrading to current will help.
If it does turn out to be the same error I linked originally, how come KDE was not just reverted to an earlier version by the ARM maintainers? Is there something more to it.. surely there must be?
