The new qt package is a fifth the size of the previous: what's up?


The previous qt package, qt-4.8.2-i486-4.txz is 163285360 bytes; the new package, qt-4.8.4-i486-1.txz, is 29307900 . What's up?

Sorry if I'm stealing the thread, but can I simply download the qt 4.8.4 in current and do an 'upgradepkg' with it on my stock 14.0 qt 4.8.2 installation?

I would not use -current packages on an older stable release of Slackware...
Alternatively you can grab a qt-4.8.4 package for your architecture (look in the "deps" subdirectory) from http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/al...e/14.0/4.10.0/ . I built my version of KDE 4.10.0 including updated dependencies such as Qt4 on Slackware 14.0. Slackware uses a copy of my SlackBuild scripts so you will get the same Qt 4.8.4 package as the one in -current.

130 MB of docs and demos! I'm glad I don't have to download that every upgrade.

I downloaded 4.8.4 and ran upgradepkg: it worked without a hitch.
