kde 4.7.4 ktown repo


Did anybody save the ktown rsync repo for kde 4.7.4? I am using 13.37 Stable and the latest kde version is 4.7.4 for 13.37 stable but is out of circulation from alien's site.

TIA!

No idea about 4.7.4 but if you are just looking for a more recent version than the one installed in 13.37, you can find 4.8.0, 4.8.1, 4.8.2, 4.8.3 compiled for 13.37 using Alien Bob's scripts here (links are in the first post of the thread):
http://www.slacky.eu/forum/viewtopic...=35384#p315005
4.8.3 is an incremental upgrade from 4.8.2, therefore you must install 4.8.2 before 4.8.3.
Don't forget to read Alien Bob's README linked in the same post.

Those are designed to work on -Current unless you compiled it by yourself

The author of the post compiled all the 4.8 versions for 13.37.
The title of the post says "KDE 4.8 per Slackware64 13.37" which means "KDE 4.8 for Slackware64 13.37".
In my previous post I forgot to mention that the packages are for 64 bit 13.37.

Just follow the links in the first post of the thread for KDE 4.8.1, KDE 4.8.2, KDE 4.8.3 and for the README file.
The text just says that if you want 4.8.3 you must install 4.8.2 first because 4.8.3 contains only packages which have changed from 4.8.2.
Il also warns you to read Alien Bob's README.
