Damn it all! KDE 4.4 even makes me want to try it out! even after my beliefs that Fluxbox is all people need.

On the other hand, since libnotify has been added to Slackware now it would be useful to rebuild exo with it present.

KDE 4.4.0 will not be added to slackware-current. That is the reason why I am building these packages and making them available "unofficially". The reason being that KDE 4.4.0 has requirements which Slackware can not satisfy. As a result, the KDE 4.4.0 Slackware packages (the ones I built) miss certain features that require authorization through PolKit: for instance there is no font installer, and it is impossible to change the computer's time and date in KDE 4.4.0. Perhaps other stuff is missing too which I have not yet found, because during compilation I saw many hints that stated "if you would have had polkit you would get extra functionality".

KDE 4.3.5 will get added to slackware-current soon.

Thank you very much Eric!
Will Slackware-current become satisfy the
requirements KDE 4.4.0 has? Sometime? I would
like this very much.

Best regards,
Jack.

Cheers

Personally, I view that as a good thing.

Notice that after the kde 4.4 install in both my -current and 64 -current/multi that slackpkg upgrade-all wants to bring back the 4.3 version. Normal behavior I assume given that 4.4 is not "official"?

Of course. This happens because slackpkg wants to make your system match the official Slackware package set for the version you configured.

Speaking of slackpkg, you wouldn't happen to have a convenient list of packages to blacklist so that it doesn't wipe out KDE 4.4, would you?

Has anyone told you lately, Alien Bob, how much you are appreciated?

A list of all packages you have installed which carry my "alien" tag (like the set of KDE 4.4.0 related packages) can be obtained by running:
Code:
ls /var/log/packages/*alien | cut -d/ -f5- | rev | cut -d- -f4- | rev
Dump the output of that command into /etc/slackpkg/blacklist.

You may want to consider if you really want to blacklist the "dependencies" (i.e. the non-KDE core packages) this way, because I know for a fact that ibv4l is going to enter slackware-current soon, and strigi as well as libxklavier packages are going to be upgraded at the same time.
Perhaps you want to use the official packages once they enter slackware-current.

But, according to your previous post, they won't...?
