KDE 4.5.5 + Amarok 2.4
« on: January 17, 2011, 09:13:31 am »
VL Devs:

This is a request for updated KDE packages on VL6 SOHO (Deluxe?). The 4.5.0 version is somewhat buggy and it would be nice to upgrade for some fixes. Amarok 2.4 also just came out.

Thank you for your consideration!

I have been working on this for a few days now, but it took a while to get the slack-current build tree downloaded, then I started getting unmet deps which I have been downloading and setting up too (the list is quite long by now, and I am sure more will turn up). Things are complicated by the fact that I don't have a separate VL6 SOHO install for packaging right now. I also got sidetracked for a couple of days with xfce-4.8, but working through rworkmans list of deps for that one simply uncovered more deps (since he built it for slack-current, much more uptodate than VL6 SOHO). On that latter project, I am pretty much stuck on udev, which won't build probably due to the old glibc. I started on udev-165, but even 147 (minimum required for latest udisks) fails to build. I am very tempted to switch to VL7 now, even though I have already built and updated A LOT of semi-dangerous stuff on VL6 SOHO (glib, atk, pango, cairo, gtk, qt, etc....), but I think I will draw the line at glibc this time... ;D
