Talking how to download KDE 4.5.1 from alien ktown


We can have now the KDE 4.5.1 in place of 4.5.0 in alien's ktown depositories.
I've read the readme file.

Quote:
First, change your current directory to where you found this README.
From within this directory, you run the following commands as root.

On Slackware 32-bit:
# upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new x86/deps/*.t?z
# upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new x86/kde/*.t?z
But I have to download first the 4.5.1 directory from
http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/4.5.1/

And I need the command line to do it.

Do you really need alien's KDE 4.5.1 because slackware-current already has KDE 4.5.1. Well, you really pursue, you can use wget.

Code:
cd to/where/you/want/to/save
wget -r url-here
But I'm not sure how to make it work in HTTP. I only tried FTP.

Do you have the FTP URL for alien.slackbook.org and the path for KTOWN ?

I use lftp
Code:
lftp -c "open http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/4.5.1/ ; mirror x86"
for instance would mirror the x86 packages in a folder called x86, wherever you ran the command from, but again these are in Slackware current now.

Yes, http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub...slackware/kde/

The problem will be that you will have to go through and pick out the dependencies. The easiest thing is just to use slackpkg to upgrade to current, which may or may not be something you want to do. The command I gave you above will mirror both kde and deps directories so that you just cd into your x86 (or x86_64) directory that the mirror command generated and AS ROOT IN RUNLEVEL 3 do
Code:
upgradepkg --reinstall --install new */*.t?z

I don't want to pick one by one all the dependencies.

I am already in current, but I shall check news again with
Quote:
# slackpkg update
# slackpkg install-new
# slackpkg upgrade-all
then
Quote:
lftp -c "open http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/4.5.1/ ; mirror x86"
then
Quote:
cd into your x86 (or x86_64) directory that the mirror command generated and AS ROOT IN RUNLEVEL 3 do
upgradepkg --reinstall --install new */*.t?z
and I hope it will work ;-)

All you have to do is upgrade current and you will be running kde 4.5.1. If you've been running Eric's other packages though, you probably have KDE blacklisted in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist if you followed directions. That's what happened to me today. I had to remember to go in and un-blacklist the kde packages.
