Kde 3.4.3 or beta 3.5 builds.....


Hello !

As far as I know Patrick didn't post any new Kde packages since 3.4.2.
I'd like to try building my own - based on Patrick's slackbuilds from kde 3.4.2.
It's internal script structure is comprehensive, but for example kdebase extra stuff is a little bit confusing for me.

Can I find a solution/help in this matter ?

You can download some Slackware packages of the beta builds from the KDE mirrors.

There are instructions on how to compile development versions here:

http://developer.kde.org/build/compile_cvs.html

I'd refer to Pat's slackbuild scripts for the KDE which shipped with 10.2 for any quirks.

Note: There may be other options you want to compile in. Check the './configure --help' page for each package for details.

Note 2: I'm not 100% sure, because I haven't tried it, but Pat's 3.4 slackbuild script may work out of the box with the newer version. The KDE team are pretty consistent with their source package names.

Thanks for an answer.
It seems that doing it via PV way would be the best solution.
As a result I'll get new working Kde and it's packages.
So it gives me the chance /removepkg/ to go quicky back to 3.4.2 if something buggy occurs.

Beware that KDE 3.5 needs QT4. You'll have to install that first.
