Master Eric-wan Kenobi, your Plasma 5 was Nuked From Orbit(TM) after the updates in -current from Sun Apr 1 02:53:26 UTC 2018


Just what title says.

BTW, also that obscure Palemoon, with NO WebRTC, had decided that's a good day for seppuku.

PS. To add insult to injury, your Qt5 build also refuse to re-compile in the offended system.

Probably the icu4c and poppler upgrades, yes?

a lot of third-party stuff breaks everytime icu4c gets a shared library version bump and, this time, also poppler had a similar update.
if you follow current and use third party repositories, IMHO, you either:
- wait patiently for third-party repositories to catch up and until then you delay your current updates: third party repositories are maintained as a best-effort commitment so, especially when holidays overlap, it may take a while;
- rebuild the interested stuff yourself.

EDIT: oops, too late!

Dear @ponce, I know so well those slogans, BTW...

Fortunately, I use Plasma 5 just for testing, then the offended system is only my playground computer.

Please treat this thread as a notice to our brave Eric.

I reverted icu4c and all is well for me. Poppler is not something I have used.I will have to wait a bit before running mirror.sh until things are fixed.

The 64bit section of my 'ktown' repository has been updated with recompiled packages, taking care of the icu4c and poppler updates in -current.
You are getting something new in addition: KMymoney 5.0.1.

The 32bit packages will hopefully land in the repository tomorrow. I wonder who still runs 32bit Slackware-current though.

Me!

But not on the kind of hardware that would take kindly to KDE

Myself I do that too.

And guess what? Also I have right on the Plasma5 desktop on a 32bit installation.

And thanks you for your all efforts, Eric!

PS. Regarding the question about Qt5 compiling time, from the other thread, the response was: 6 hours.

Thanks Eric! KDE had been freezing if left alone for awhile. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace took care of it, but it was annoying.
