That is because I have moved the KDE 4.5.0 packages into my ktown repository now that I have my Internet back...

I have added a README to the http://alien.slackbook.org/kdesc/ page so that people are warned of the move.

Well, I gave it a go again and moved the .new files this time with the same effect. It appears to have something to do with the dual monitor setup. I disabled the second monitor and everything is working now. Is there some change in KDE that would bugger up a dual monitor? I'm using an FX5200 nVidia with the 173 driver build from the slackbuilds.org build script. The following is my xorg.conf:

Got it. Evidently my video card is too old. The legacy173 driver seems to not play well with the opengl compositing. This is not a huge deal. I had opengl set previously and disable functionality checks checked without issue. 4.5.0 seems to develop problems with this. 4.4.5 could deal with it. I will miss some of the eye candy for now. I think it may be time to upgrade the vid card.

Hi :-)

I have not had problems with dolphin (kde445 and kde450). I was surprised at reports about the Dolphin above. It will, perhaps because I use proprietary Nvidia drivers?

I had and have problems using kde45 when resize panel .... The "X" crash!

Another problem with KTorrent was not started. I resolved by copying the
lib /usr/lib64/ "libktorrent.so.2.0.1." Lack of these lib ,cause error in plugin kget ... I copied the lib from another installation on another partition.I also did :
#ln -s /usr/lib64/libktorrent.so.2 /usr/lib64/libktorrent.so

#ln -s /usr/lib64/libktorrent.so.2.0.1 /usr/lib64/libktorrent.so.2

Thanks

I have not had issues with dolphin either, at least not so far. There was a package added to kde4.4.5
Quote:
kde/ktorrent-4.0.2-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
This now requires libktorrent.
kde/libktorrent-1.0.2-i486-1.txz: Added.
that should have taken care of that.

So this is it! After updating the lib is there, but not the links ....

I think I must have done something wrong, since in another update by me ,that has not happened ...

Thanks ryerke for the warning

for those having issue with dolphin I found this in the kde bugtracker

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=232054

there's reports too on slacky.eu that upgrading dbus seems to solve things, worth a try.

be aware that, like phobos says there, after having rebuilt latest dbus from pat's scripts you better switch to init 1, to kill all processes that are using dbus, before "upgradepkg --install-new --reinstall" the new dbus package, then reboot your system.

The KDE451 is now in Slackcurrent ...

Well I ask: For those who have packages Alien need to reinstall the packages from the tree of Slackcurrent?

For example: I have already installed the package

Quote:
kdeaccessibility-4.5.1-x86_64-1alien.txz
then it would be necessary to remove and then install the package

Quote:
kdeaccessibility-4.5.1-x86_64-1.txz


Slackcurrent of the tree?

thanks

No... My question is, if

Quote:
kdeaccessibility-4.5.1-x86_64-1alien.txz
equal to

Quote:
kdeaccessibility-4.5.1-x86_64-1.txz
Identical, I know they are not!

Thanks

Of course they are not byte-identical. However, they were built using the same SlackBuild scripts.

Ultimately, you will be better of by upgrading to the official Slackware packages. Mine were fine as long as KDE 4.5.1 had not been added to slackware-current.
