Today I installed K3B on my 5.8 Standard Gold. It seems to be working, though I haven't tried to burn anything yet.
I first used gslapt to get k3b, but it was going to add tons of things to my system and even worse, upgrade things I didn't want upgraded. So I downloaded just the kdelibs and k3b packages from the /testing directory in the main repository and installed them with installpkg. I also ran ldconfig and the k3bsetup. Then I started k3b as user and everything seems in order.
My question is, is that all there is to it? I don't need to download anything else? If so, why are there so many dependencies in the k3b package from gslapt? I mean, it was going to add hal, which I don't want, and the new Wine, along with a pile of other stuff! I have an older Wine and don't want to upgrade it until I have more feedback because I have some important Windows applications working quite well under Wine and a newer version sometimes breaks what runs on older versions.
