(Hopefully) final recompilations for KDE 5_15.11

 There was still some work to do about my Plasma 5 package repository. The recent updates in slackware-current broke several packages that were still linking to older (and no longer present) libraries which were part of the icu4c and udev packages. So finally I had the time to cure this situation. I rebuilt kdelibs, kde-workspace and […]

Cleanups from the -current update fallout

I think I have managed to fix most of the important breakage in my packages, after Slackware-current updated its icu4c package a couple of days ago. Recompiled packages are now available for -current: Regular packages: LibreOffice 5.0.3 KDE 5_15.11 packages: qt5 (which was bumped to 5.5.1 at the same time), step, akonadi4, akonadi, akonadi-search, akonadi-calendar and […]

KDE 5_15.11 for Slackware-current – visual improvements

KDE 5_15.10 for Slackware-current brings Telepathy

 It’s october, the leaves are falling, we had our first frost this week… and here is yet another KDE 5 release for Slackware to keep you warm and cozy. I am happy with my KDE 5_15.10 update. Again I waited until every KDE source was refreshed: this set contains Frameworks 5.15.0, Plasma 5.4.2 and Applications 15.08.2. And you know what? The “progress […]

Second Plasma 5 update for September

The previous update was targeted for August but due to the difficulties I had in compiling all packages, that release slipped to early September. That is why I can announce a second September release for my KDE 5 packages for Slackware. The KDE 5_15.09_02 update contains all new software: Frameworks 5.14.0, Plasma 5.4.1 and Applications 15.08.1. I had a couple of […]
