KDE 4.1

I see today that Slackware has packaged KDE 4.1 for Slack, any chance we will see it soon for Vector?

If you looked at the change log 4.1 is in testing. There are
still some big issues to be solved. The NVIDIA issue is
one of them. IMHO it is too soon.

The NVIDIA problem is a bug in the NVIDIA driver. The KDE packages can still be made and NVIDIA users should have full speed once NVIDIA releases a new driver.

I think he means in slackware's testing repo.

That's right -- KDE version 4.1 is now part of Slackware -current (in the /testing directory)

Unfortunately, it does not work on VL 5.9. It would be great to have KDE 4.1 built for VL 5.9. Thanks!
