http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-kde@ ... 32264.html

this discussion is just about debian testing. Aptosid is based on debian unstable and, as usual, we'll have to wait until packages are ready (snapshots in qt-kde experimental repo, actually empty). When these packages are ready they'll move to (experimenatl?) -> unstable. Here we are. testing is not our business. Smile

I have found this message more alert to me:

with the new KDE SC 4.7 release, we will need to do some changes in our
packaging due to the tarballs' split


Anyway if you want to try out kde 4.7 i suggest you to try arch (new netinstall images released today!). Arch is really close to aptosid philosophy, pacman is really powerful (sometimes it seems faster than apt/dpkg), you can always find newer software and the community is great. I use it as a testing system and aptosid as my main: debian packages and slh kernel are the best overall Cool

belze I support you, my teacher on computer science uses arch, but I too am closer to deb to packages and apt... Cool

belze I tried three times Arch and three times it was broken after a week or so.

On the other hand I have the very first "sidux" installation in a machine and still works Smile

I have test almost the whole DW list and debian unstable (aptosid) is one of the most stable distributions out there.

Arch is a great distro for learning, but even installing the LiveCD (which is too old and didn't work with my wireless USB) and updating to the latest packages was way too much of a pain. In the end, I had to use the archlinux FTP to get the latest pacman and mirrorlist and go from there. It would be a lot better if their mirrors didn't change so frequently, or if they uncapped their official FTP (or made more frequent LiveCD's).


Arch has nightly builds of their install CD's much like Debian does.

it's quite easy to set up an arch installation even using virtualbox, and than try the newest kde version, just to have an idea. I usually do it. I don't use arch as my main system; I said pacman is very nice, faster than apt an my machine, but you're right, the difference is in the packages where debian devs are the best. That's why i'm using arch just to have a quick impression of newer software like kde.
This is the bad side, too much work to achieve such a good quality for a few devs. If I could I would help them, for sure!

let's hope in a Christmas’s gift!
anyway, usually no new version came out before qt-kde repo is used. Till now this did not happen.. it is not a good signal. It would be nice if devs write just a blog post or two to say "Hey, we're working on it!" or "we have problem splitting packages and building the dependencies". Maybe someone could be more interested in supporting them, or even joining the team. I think they're too much isolated, isn't this the era of communication?

Given that they started working on 4.7 between 13 and 5 days ago...we're at the beginning, in my opinion.

You can compile 4.7.1 yourself in the following order:

http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg ... ;a=summary

It's really snappy Smile. I used debianizations from debian's git repository and pulled kdelibs/runtime/workspace from KDE/4.7 branch (4.7.2 is already tagged - that's why i have 4.7.2)

To compile all of KDE including ancillary apps would take days and be a real PITA.

However it would be good to work with the debian devs and get/give feedback

GNOME's even worse to build I bet Shocked

It's not really THAT hard - except for the bindings - these are a nightmare (i don't plan to build them)
Components that take the longest time to compile are kdelibs, kde-workspace and kdepim.

I already did a backport of 4.6 for squeeze - qt takes a REALLY long time to compile.

Marble won't build - it complains something about qtlocation's cmake, so i probably won't build it.

So far i have:
akonadi/

kdeartwork/
kde-baseapps/
kdebase-runtime/
kde-graphics/
kdemultimedia/

kdepim-runtime/

Master kdelibs are frozen for 1~1/2 month - KDE devs are currently working on frameworks (what will be KDE 5.0) - there are new repos: nepomuk core are activities - for kde-workspace master you will need libkactivities , for 4.7.x everething should be supplied with kdelibs 4.7.x.

Unfortunately (not for me Smile ) - packages are built without pulseaudio support, v1.0 is not recognized by KDE.
Also, packages are built with shared-desktop-ontologies from experimental.
What i changed from debian/* - built soprano against raptor2 not raptor1 (as suggested by Nepomuk/Soprano dev S. Truegg), and built kde-workspace against libgl - not GLES (GLES only works for free drivers, not proprietary NVIDIA and fglrx)

In first place, It's a free software project, version control systems are readable by anyone and you also have the pkg-kde-commits mailing list. If you don't know what's going on with the development it's your fault, not ours.

In second place, if you are wondering why usually guys asking in irc or mailing lists

are silently ignored by me, and why I am, in general, so silent about our work, you can find the answer in moronic conversations like this:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2009 ... 00025.html
Don't miss the replies.

Note that we are busy developing and the point of the Debian Qt/KDE team is producing packages, not producing useless messages in a mailing list.

Well, Santa, I just agree 50%. The other half is the point of view of a user (a none developer). If it becomes an adventure to find information where to find hints for constructing an own status report it is clear that users do not find what the kde packaging status is like. So they ask. If you do not want people to ask for the current status, then just write down a monthly short report somewhere where a user can find it.

I have searched the web several times for some information of the kde packing status and never found some hints. IMHO there should be a note on
http://qt-kde.debian.net/
or
http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/

I do not understand the info that are presented on http://packages.qa.debian.org/k/kdebase.html
and if I follow the commit messages, I could see what did happen, but I do not see what still is to be done.

What I would like to read is an estimation if packaging will need another 2 or 3 weeks, or if 4.7 will never show up in debian/sid because you might want to wait for 4.8? I do not want a promise that KDE4.7 will be released into debian/sid on a concrete date like the xth of december.

Regarding the question why people ask for the packaging status: It is not because they demand on something. It is because of interest and anticipation. If I have problems with KDE and I have read that some issues have been fixed in a more recent version, and that performance has been tuned, I am very curious to test a new version. Also currently it is impossible for me to write bug reports, as IMHO it does not make sense to report issues of KDE 4.6 as 4.8 is coming out in some weeks. I have tried to compile KDE trunk for some month now, but since 4.7 this has become so complicated that I did not manage to get a really working version.

I have dist-upgraded a 64bit machine to KDE4.7. Until now I could not find any problems. The speed is fine, but the machine is very fast anyway (Sandy-Bridge i7).


I'll take an image snapshot of my system before I upgrade just to be safe

my impressions:
1- i don't see any big difference of speed nor positive nor negative.
2- on arch (with a fresh system, no personal adjustment) kde 4.7.3 is really much more faster. Mybe i'll need to create a new profile...
3- i still miss the new kdepim (and a simple way to sync with google calendar and contacts)
4- amarok suddenly has a lot of problems...it could be linked with my observation #2

Otherwise, it works great! Good job packagers!!!

aside from managing to crash kwin during shutdown once, it is proving to be just as fast and stable as any other debian kde release.

I noticed that when a VMware VM is running, desktop switching is slowed WAY down -- this was also true for 4.6.5. Other than that, I see no issues after 24 hours of running 4.7.2.

that sounds more like a vmware issue than a kde issue.

maybe I should create a fresh ~/.kde just to be safe as could be a lot of things that could break between 4.6.5 and 4.7.2

I also tried KDE 4.7.2 on 64bit for a few days now and have no problems (beside this bug concerning kmenuedit).

Looks like it got fixed in 4.7.3. A workaround is to edit the corresponding .desktop file for the menu entry to change or remove the "OnlyShowIn=" line

Hi,

I just install kde 4.7.2 with these experimental repositories on Linux Mint Debian edition and all is good!

On my subnotebook Lenovo U350 (Intel U7300, no true graphic card), starts of programs are very quick and many of them open instantly. I can reenable main visual effects. No crash yet.

Thanks for this important update Very Happy,

Daniel

Any known problems with KDE-PIM in 4.7.2? Especially with IMAP-accounts?

I had very bad experiences about this with another distribution at work (name starts with k and ends with ubuntu in 11.10 flavour). I'm a little bit affraid,

I only found an issue with my external USB-Soundcard (internal is OK), it stopped working with KDE Apps after the upgrade, non-KDE and CLI were OK...

Only could get it to work with pulseaudio and even then I have to unplug and plug it after reboot... a bit annoying but not a showstopper.

talking about IMAP, i have been using kdepim 4.6.x from debian unstable and kde 4.7.2 from experimental snapshot in the last few days. It works as before.

As described here http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2011 ... 00018.html kdepim4.7 was skipped. So the old packages should work as before, shouldn't it?
