Do not bother in building yourselves, we will be providing unsupported snapshots packages in the next few days.


what if i want to build the packages myself ? :)

especially when stuff like "Could not connect to kde4.debian.net:80 (82.195.75.82). - connect (113 No route to host)" happens...

now... if only there was some easy way to grab stuff from svn and build packages...

Then go, do a checkout, do another checkout of the packaging stuff (it is mentioned early in this thread), build then and have fun. Do not forget send patches if you fix stuff!

easier said than done...

like when theres dependencies like cmake (>= 2.6.2-3~)
or the part when the "apt-get --build source moudule_name" starts downloading something old...

Hey, it is definitely in my plans! I had actually already given a first shot by packaging Lancelot, but it is now included in the official kdeplasma-addons! (guess I have to close the wnpp bug..)

My only problem at the moment is the complete lack of time, but I will be trying new adventures in contributing to the community as time gives.

Cheers and Happy Xmas to all!

@cassiano

Yes, thanks for the build...worked for me.

I upgraded the KDE 4.13 I had, to KDE 4.2-beta2, running under sidux (2008-3),
by just following the info at
http://kde42.debian.net/

I added the repo mentioned there, and using aptitude (rather than apt-get), I first
tentatively tried just an 'aptitude safe-upgrade' (which updated 32 pkgs, but
didn't get me there). But, with an 'aptitude dist-upgrade' (ok, I admit I was
a bit nervous, but that seemed like the needed thing to do ),
it worked! [Aptitude is key...had I tried that with apt-get, I'd be
sitting on a pile of worthless sidux dust. I LOVE aptitude!]

I'm now the happy evaluator of KDE 4.2 pre-release. It looks pretty slick, tho
I haven't really had time to explore it much yet. :D :D

I got KDE4.2 from experimental onto my Lenny.

Everything is perfect but now my network is not working. I do get a valid IP but still.

The error i get is:

Code: Select all
"resolvconf: Error: /etc/resolvconf/run/interface is not a directory"


Can you help me with this.
