  1. KDE 3.4.2 backport now?

    Hello,

    There has been a number of sarge backport attempts for KDE 3.4.2 discussed
    here.

    Which should I download, if I want to install it right now?

    (I think I'll also try to package KDE 3.5 beta using the backport sources
    as a template...)

    Yours, Mikhail Ramendik

    Hi,

    I can recommend the packages from ekhis (former kalyxo):

    deb ftp://ftp.ekhis.org/ekhis/ backports main
    deb-src ftp://ftp.ekhis.org/ekhis/ backports main

    Best regards,

    Serge

    I've checked, but these seem incomplete (some packages, for example kdepim,
    are from 3.4.0). Am I wrong somewhere?

    For my part, kdepim 3.4.2 is the other package I had compile errors in.
    But I think that's my PC's fault, as I have similar problems compiling
    kernels on it. This coming week I'm going to set up pbuilder on a
    faster machine which I know has no compile problems, and try again.

    Patrick Dreker's complete backport seems to be here:

    http://mirror.debianforum.de/kde-3.4.2/

    This sems very serious. Could you (or anybody else) verify that it is indeed
    so? Or was it a list of bugs that you have found yourself?

    As I am actually using those very packages myself, I cannot confirm these two
    issues. kdm starts as usual (which should be a string indication, that the
    binary is actually there ;-) ) and x.org is *not* an issue in Sarge, as Sarge
    contains XFree86 4.3...

    aside from that: the relevance of the official Debian BTS for inofficial (and
    highly so...) packages (which mine definitely are) eludes me a little bit...
    (assuming that this is the output of apt-listbugs)

    And I do test and use my own packages on my machine in day to day business,
    and so far I have not identified any major issues, aside from a missing JuK
    package, which I disabled, as it didn't compile on the first try...

    I am currently working on getting clean backport packages, while cooperating
    with Tapio Kautto on whose excellent work I am building. Unfortunately my
    time (and Tapio's) is limited, and so progress is slow...

    What kind of problems lie between the repo (as downloadable now) and a clean
    backport?

    this is the issue of "apt-get upgrade" with the above sources. So I did not
    continue.

    No really major issues, except for a missing JuK package. Most problems are
    simply packaging problems, e.g. the packages have the same version number as
    in SID, the maintainer field is unchanged from the SID packages, they don't
    have an updated changelog, and so on.

    And last but not least these packages depend on a dbus backport from SID,
    which has seen major changes in packaging format, which might cause
    dependency conflict with other packages needing dbus, even though I have not
    identified any such issues yet.
