Post KDE 3.5.6 packages?


Does any one know where I can find Slackware Packages for KDE 3.5.6?

I looked on the kde ftp site but there aren't any, there usually are Slackware packages released the same time as other distros.

How long would it take me to compile from source? (2 x Pentium 4 3.20GHz 512 megs of RAM.)

All binaries for Slackware tend to be created by volunteers. Since 3.5.6 has only been out for 3 days, I would keep checking http://www.kde.org/info/3.5.6.php and www.linuxpackages.net to see if one has been created.

Or install from source, 'cos Slackers have that option

I'm currently using Konstruct to build KDE 3.5.6 from source.

Thanks.

Regards,

I just grabbed these and upgraded with no issues at the moment.

I'm afraid it is for cdroms. USB drives work fine. Didn't test the floppy drive (does anyone still use those?).

I was looking at those packages on linuxpackages.net, and they seemed to require a lot of other packages from the site as well (like D-Bus, hal, ...). Are there any other packages that are built more the way 3.5.4 was, that don't require any other packages outside slackware-11.0?

Thanks, I might. I would really rather not compile everything myself, though - that's why I'm looking for packages.

Well... I don't have any for vanilla Slackware 11.0, and I have no plans to build any, as my goal is testing for the gnupg2 integration (which allows KMail to completely support encrypting/decrypting messages). There are quite a few dependencies for these packages, all of which are noted, available, and documented on my site. If you're interested (be aware that these are marked *testing* for a reason though), see http://rlworkman.net/pkgs/11.0/testing/kde-3.5.6/
