slack current and k3b

I want to ask if anyone else can confirm this..

With the updates found in
Sun Jul 31 17:08:43 PDT 2005

The k3b update doesn't include a k3b bin.. It used to be in /opt/kde/bin , but now i can't find it anywhere, and the k3b icon in my menu list has disapeared too.

Searching through the k3b package in /var/swaret/, i find that there's no /opt/kde/bin listed in there.

Yes. I confirm that after installing k3b-0.12.3-i486-1 from slackware current, the k3b binary is missing.

Is there a backout method for these updates?

Package Browser also reports /opt/kde/bin as missing in the new K3B package - report it as a bug to Pat.

You just email Pat.

From ./slackware-current/CURRENT.WARNING
[Standard disclaimer follows... ]

Welcome to Slackware-current!

Slackware-current is a snapshot of the active Slackware development tree.
It is intended to give developers (and other Linux gurus) a chance to test
out the latest packages for Slackware. The feedback we get will allow us
to make the next stable release better than ever.

See the ChangeLog.txt for a list of changes in Slackware-current.

Please note that the code in this directory is unstable. It might be
inconsistent about which version of the Linux kernel is required, could be
incomplete because it's in the process of being uploaded, or might not work
for other reasons. In most cases, we know about these things and are working
to correct them, but still -- feel free to point out the bugs.

Enjoy! :)
