My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

KDE 4.4.3 packages for Slackware-current

Another release from the KDE community.

Here it is, KDE Software Compilation 4.4.3. The sources were unveiled today by the KDE release team, and Slackware packages are now ready for you to download. Get them at the usual location:

The usual warnings apply – do not install my KDE 4.4.3 packages if you are not running the latest slackware-current (64-bit or 32-bit). Also note that the list of dependency packages you need to upgrade/install has grown a bit.

Read the README in the top-directory for full installation/upgrade instructions, or look for my older post.

With this shiny new KDE release and all the recent updates in Slackware-current, you’ll have plenty to play with.

Have fun, Eric

    Wow, there is no official announcement on and we already have 4.4.3 available!
    That’s a good service ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thanks a bunch Eric for all your work!

    Yes, the official announcement on will be later today, but when I saw the sources appearing I decided I would not have to wait for that. Debian and Arch have released their packages days ago, and they will now have to release an update for their kdelibs package… that one got a bugfix update right before the sources were released ๐Ÿ™‚

    again tnx eric! ๐Ÿ˜€

    and let’s hope polkit people integrate the shadow patch soon.
    it looks like they are probably busy on other things because their repo shows no activity (besides two fixes) from five months.

    Thank you Eric! I’m downloading the packages now.

  12. Vito

    Will see KDE 4.4.X officially on Slackware?
    How does proceeding the integration?
    I hope that you will solve the problem of Policykit!

    Thanks for all Eric,

  13. Christophe Nguyen

    Thanks Eric. I’ve just upgraded to 4.4.3

    It’s already been mentioned several times. We should not expect 4.4.x on next stable release (it’ll be 4.3.5).
