Latest KDE?
I was just over at KDE HQ! And wanted to DL the latest KDE but there is no MDK compiled version available! Does anyone know when will it be=

Have you set up your urpmi database to include texstar? If so, open a console, su to root and type:

urpmi kdebase-3.1.4

It will download all of the dependencies and install them, then you will have the new version.

If 3.1.4 is not available from texstar (I don't know if he's made the rpm's yet) then go for 3.1.3 instead. I know those are out.

Unfortenetly I don't have internet at home! So everything I do or DL is from a friend of mine!!!

The reason that I want a newer one is because KOQUERER tends to crash when dealing with a lot of file! aND IF i TRY TO UNCOMPREs a 300MB file in ARK the program will also hang!!

I can't help you with the konqueror issue right now. According to what I can see, texstar has no files for 3.1.4 yet. They will come soon, though.

As far as extracting the file and Ark freezing, why not try it from the command line? What type of file is it?

for tar.gz or .tgz files, use tar -xzvf filename.tar.gz
for zip files -> unzip

I almost always use the command line! Im just pissed of of KDE that they realse a KDE version which is still in beta phase!! I mean I don't know why dont they just make it less beautifull and more STABLE

3.1.4 is still beta but that's nothing

I know someone who is currently running KDE 3.2 alpha2 from cooker. That's bound to be more unstable than the releases they have currently.

BigDaddy 09-26-2003 06:09 PM

But which KDE is absolutly stable? I mean at least the basic KONQUERER should be! Or does anyone have any other suggestion?

Kovacs 09-28-2003 07:11 AM

IMHO you're better off doing that kind of thing from the command line.

BigDaddy 09-28-2003 10:17 AM

Agreed! I just hate that they publish something not stable in LINUX which is very stable!
Why don't they just get their act together

KDE 3.1.4 by TEXSTAR
TEXSTAR at is building the 3.1.4 kde on special request by the many users. He is not ready yet. First we get an unstable one and he will (as he did for kde 3.1.3 with some specials in it!) update if there is reply on it.

A part is ready . . . . . . . .
