You probably were aware that the KDE team had released version 4.5.2 of their software compilation a little while ago. I had other things to do at that time, so you did not see a package set for Slackware until now.
Yesterday I talked to Pat Volkerding to see what his short-term planning looked like, and based on the conversation I decided to go ahead and build a set of packages for slackwarre-current (32-bit and 64-bit of course). Rest assured that Pat is working on something equally entertaining as building KDE packages 😉
Here they are, uploaded to my ‘ktown’ repository.
See the README file for installation or upgrade instructions. They are no different from any prior release. There is not even a single additional dependency to install this time, thanks to the fact that Slackware -current already contains KDE SC 4.5.1.
thanks Eric, already downloading to try them.
I really need a distraction from head bashing with pcmanfm from git. 😉

I couldn’t find the deps directory
Is that correct?
We don’t need that packages directory in this new version?
I wrote in my blog post “There is not even a single additional dependency to install this time”… that was not so cryptic was it?
I am experiencing a bug in the Help Window (of any KDE 4.5.2 application): only the first page of the help is displayed correctly; instead, the following pages show an error message.
Thanks Eric. Low temperatures and a nice feel =]
Smooth as always. I updated yesterday and have yet to find any issues with the new version. Seems a little faster.
I went on vacation for a week – man you were busy while i was gone! Thanks!
just asking, when will the qt 4.7.x be included in slackware?
No idea, there are currently no plans for upgrading Qt. If there are pressing reasons for wanting this, feel free to write them down.
Last I checked, rekonq requires QT 4.7
