Hello people out there, I've just managed to install KDE 4.2 usinng testing/current and I'd like to put here what I did to get there if someone needs it
1) Download it from <mirror>slackware/slackware-current/testing/packages/kde4
I used this since I wanted the new bash too:
wget -rx --read-timeout=120 --limit-rate=60k --wait=5 --no-parent -nc <mirror>/slackware/slackware-current/testing/packages
A note about this script: I had to set sources dir permissions to non-executable because wget tried to download sources too. I was too lazy to debug it so if you feel free too do so :P
2) After downloading it check if the files are properly downloaded using md5sum which is located at:
You can use (this is written at the file):
md5sum -c CHECKSUMS.md5 | less
3) Now, run the script remove-kde3.sh inside kd4 folder.
4) Now install it using pkgtool. I've made a script which worked flawlessly.
Note: If you want it to install language packages edit the last lines of the script.
echo -e "\n\nInstalling KDE 4.2..."
# Edit this to install you're on language package if you need so.
echo -e "\n\nCompleted. (:"
Well this is it. Worked 100% here and I hope it works for you too.
