KDE 4.5.1 packages
 
Hello there,

Any chance to have KDE 4.5.1 packages for Slackware current?
Searched both official Slackware and Alien site and found nothing.

Cheers

Just a guess but give Eric a few days and he'll have them available.

You guessed right, Daedra ;)

See http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/kde-...ok-the-plunge/ and start your download engines.

These packages will work with @rworkmann new Xorg packages? I've just installed these packages and the kernel 2.6.35.4 on my slackware-current.

Martinezio 09-03-2010 08:49 AM

I don't see the incompatibility points, so I think, yes - they should work without any problems... I'm currently on upgrade process, so... Keep Your fingers crossed ;D

I am downloading AlienBob packages. The rworkman's Xorg packages work really fine. At this moment no problems with Intel graphic. Hope the same will be with KDE 4.5.1.:)

Martinezio 09-03-2010 09:52 AM

Done - all works just fine ;)

Big thx, Eric :hattip:

For me doesn't work. Some errors about "Console.Kit" and "freedesktop.org" and KDE crashes. But I may run KDE under tmw and under blackbox. Ok, in the runlevel 4 KDE boots up properly but only in a safe mode. What does it mean? Do I have to do some additional setups?

I would check if you have a customized ~/.xinitrc, in that case you can try:
- backup it;
- run again xwmconfig and select xinitrc.kde
- try running X again.

another thing to try in case of problems should be to starting X with a fresh ~/.kde folder.

Do you have ConsoleKit installed?

@Dive I found ConsoleKit package in /var/log/packages.
When I disabled desktop effects KDE is working. Maybe some problems with Kwin? The other problems: fonts rendering - an 'i' letter completely disappeared. Last but not least KDE 4.5.1 is slow on my 512 MB RAM notebook. It heavily uses swap. After running Konqueror the usage of the swap increased from 80 MB to 150 MB. Really heavy stuff. It is enough to click at empty place on a desktop to hear hard drive running. The way it works reminds me the KDE 4.2.0 from Slackware 13.0. The good thing is that KDE 4.5.1 works.

it's a way of bypass the problem (lack of ram), but I had good results with compcache, it might help in your case (512M).

rvdboom 09-03-2010 01:47 PM

Is there any plan to allow for Webkit support in Konqueror?
It's supposed to be added in 4.5.X but I think it requires some "webkitkde" package. I think it is in extragear.
