I can't get KDE 4 to start - I get a message saying kde4init is missing libstreamanaylzer.so.0.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Tom

uelsk8s,

My mistake.  Thanks!  Now KDE 4 started fine - thanks for all your hard work.

Xeon, the packages uelsk8s made are for VL 5.9, which already has Xorg 7.3.

Yes easuter, I installed kde from kde.org (using cmakekde) and tried a few packages by uelsk8s (might have gone something wrong)

I was somewhat surprised by the comment about KDE4 that appeared in the Slackware Changelog. Not that the comment is in any way peculiar or off-base, merely that Patryk is usually critical of overly verbose comments in the Changelog (I can't recall ever seeing one such as this).

Despite its reputation for being conservative, I am finding more and more that Slackware is much more state-of-the-art than the other major distros.

Quote from: The Changelog on Wed Jan 30 19:07:35 CST 2008
Great thanks are also due to the KDE team, not only for their tremendous
accomplishments over the years, but for the gracious reception they gave to
the members of the Slackware team who traveled to the release event. What
a wonderful group of people! We had a great time there, learned a lot, and
will be applying that knowledge and our new contacts within KDE to provide
the best possible KDE experience for Slackware users. The next Slackware
release will contain KDE 3.5.9, but we're targeting KDE 4.1.x for the one
after that. The application end of things doesn't quite fully cover KDE3's
functionality yet, but by then it will. As I'm sure most of you know, Robby
has put up test packages of the initial KDE 4.0 release which I've tested and
found to be consistent with what to expect from a developer's preview.
       The look of the new desktop is stunning, and the use of SVG and hardware
acceleration gives (IMHO) even something like MacOS a run for its money in
terms of appearance and user-friendliness. We look forward with great
anticipation to merging KDE4 when it is mature enough (and it's getting there
fast), and then watching it just get better and better.
Once again, _huge_ thanks to our KDE friends! Stop by here any time. :-)

A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that works.
