KDE 4.10.1, but packaged only for slackware-current

Here it is, KDE Software Compilation 4.10.1. A few weeks ago, KDE 4.10.0 was added to Slackware-current, along with all its updated dependencies. Essentially that was the same set of packages which I had made available on my ‘ktown‘ repository earlier, Pat Volkerding simply recompiled them using the provided KDE.SlackBuild framework.

Slackware-current adopts KDE SC 4.10

Today, you may be watching the slackware-current ChangeLog.txt slack-faced, with a feeling of horror… … because the update is HUGE. There are well over 300 lines of updates! That amounts to one-third of the full length of ChangeLog for the current development cycle. Those of you who thought Slackware was calmly drifting toward another stable […]
