DBus 1.3.1 for 13.1 Current?


Is DBus 1.3.1 available for 13.1 current yet?
Is there a slackbuild out there?

I am in need of this dbus build to make dolphin behave correctly since there is a bug in the old dbus making dolphin hang for seconds at a time...

for more info:

http://dot.kde.org/2010/08/31/kde-releases-451

Thanks!

Not Yet.

Hence,

Get the official slackbuild from here: ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/s...source/a/dbus/

Get the latest source from: http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases...s-1.4.0.tar.gz

Compile it yourself, go to init 1 and install the package: "upgradepkg"

There is no such thing as "13.1 current" -- there is "13.1" and there is "-current" -- they are not the same thing.
13.1 is the most recent stable release, and it is presently maintained in its patches/ directory.
-current is the development release leading to the next stable (13.2, 14.0, whatever) release.

In short, we are aware of the dbus issue, and it's not as simple as upgrading only dbus. The whole chain of stuff that follows along is being tested now (in fact, it's all doing quite well here), and once it clears *our* testing, then you'll see it in the public -current tree.

rworkman,

Excuse my ignorance... Just thought they where the same... My system landed in "current" after a mistake in a system update... so this "current" is new to me...
I am sure there is many other bugs but following that thread dolphin gets fixed with the dbus upgrade or am I wrong? In any case I think I might go back to a fresh 13.1 if the dbus upgrade does not work out.
Thanks!

Lots of people seem to misunderstand that.

The dbus upgrade fixes it fine; it's just that the dbus upgrade requires dbus-glib rebuild, so we may as well upgrade it, but it requires newer glib2, which means other stuff will need/want to be upgraded, which means other stuff will want/need to be upgraded, which means we may as well go ahead and bump something else, and so on... Give us some time :-)

Thanks for the background Robby.

With your work on the latest X and Eric's blog comments on KDE 4.5.3 I feel an update avalanche coming!

With the attention to detail that the developers invariably provide, I am confident we will survive and thrive.

i think when those updates gets released, it will be another massive updates on -Current. No wonder it would take some time to make sure everything is working before it gets released.

Kudos to Pat and all of the Slackware team

I am using dbus-1.4 with no problems. I was aware there could be problems just upgrading dbus, but it is working for my simple needs.
