Can I bring KDevelop only to current?
I'm running 14.0-64 plus security update packages. Normally I prefer to avoid the bleeding edge and just do full version upgrades rather than try to keep -current. But I'd like to bring KDevelop up to the -current level.
These are the packages from -current that I think I need:
I might need a couple of others, like kdelibs and kdesdk.
Am I likely to run into problems if I upgrade these packages without the rest of KDE?
Is it ok to upgrade selectively using packages from -current, or would I be better off building from source, or upgrading all the KDE packages, or upgrading everything (i.e., fully -current)?
I think building from source could be a bit of work, as there are some dependencies that I don't see in the default 14.0 packages, like Qt-devel.
I don't use KDE so I didn't try, but I suggest you install packages for KDE-4.10.5 provided by Alien BOB here
Thank you Didier. That will certainly make it easy for me!
Thanks also to Alien Bob for all your tremendous support for the rest of us slackers.
The upgrade to KDE 4.10.5 using Alien Bob's packages went perfectly.
Later, I ran slackpkg update and slackpkg upgrade-all to pick up recently rebuilt packages with security updates (i.e., the glibc, firefox, and thunderbird packages that were announced on the slackware-security list earlier today). slackpkg wanted to "upgrade" all of the packages that were included in Alien Bob's 4.10.5 set back to the 4.8 level.
I blacklisted those packages in the slackpkg blacklist by adding an entry at the bottom:
