KDE 4.6.1 add-on for Slackware 13.37 RC1

Yes folks… we have a release candidate for the next stable version of Slackware. Its version mumber is going to be “13.37” as could be expected… it was too tempting not to be used, after we had “12.34567890” for a little while during an earlier development cycle…

And to accompany this event, I have also made available a new set of KDE packages. It’s KDE 4.6.1 and the packages have been built on Slackware 13.37-RC1.

KDE Software Compilation 4.6.1 sources were released a few days ago. It is the first “stabilization update” in the 4.6 series which will see steady updates until July 2011. I had to wait with my upload & announcement until the 13.37-RC1 appeared; there were some last-minute changes to the raptor/rasqal/redland packages in slackware-current because soprano would no longer compile. Be sure to upgrade to Slackware 13.37-RC1 or newer before using these KDE packages!

KDE 4.6.1 for Slackware (32bit as well as 64bit releases) can be found in my ktown repository already, http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/4.6.1/ and soon on its mirrors (http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/alien-kde/4.6.1/ and http://repo.ukdw.ac.id/alien-kde/4.6.1/ both of which have rsync access as well).

You are encouraged to (re-)visit my older post, because most of what I said for KDE 4.6.0 – about the upgrade from Slackware’s own KDE 4.5.5 – still holds true. Of course, the packages come with a detailed README which shows step-by-step what you have to do in order to upgrade to KDE 4.6.1.

Enjoy! Eric

  2. I’ve upgraded (with slapt-get, not with reinstall), work fine but after an hour i can’t open any software:
    root@roberto:~# xterm
    Maximum number of clients reached


  3. Thanks, great work so far eric, but in the current kde 4.6.1 deps I miss a rebuilded QScintilla package, this stops eric4 from workin on …

  5. Again..wow..I can’t believe how pampered we slackers are…4.6.1 installed and purring along nicely..many thanks Eric.


  6. I’ve been having that Max number of clients thingy also. Ctrl>Alt>Backspace solves it for a while, but it is sure annoying. Google is no help yet.



  7. As was said several times, on several media, over the past months: The upcoming Slackware stable release will not have XFCE 4.8 or KDE 4.6. Those versions of the two desktop enviroments require changes in Slackware that Pat is not yet prepared to make. In particular, HAL will remain part of the distro at least in this next release.

    Perhaps in the next development cycle that starts after the release of Slackware 13.37, you may see that HAL gets removed. XFCE nor KDE require it any longer. In that case, upower/udisks have to be added to Slackware to replace the functionality of HAL.

    I think that needs a bit of maturing and also we need to give other developers more time to switch away from HAL completely.

  8. Roberto, Mike –

    About this “X11: maximum number of clients reached” issue of yours… are you perhaps running the Chrome webbrowser, and/or using the “lastpass” browser extension? Both of these turn up as culprits when trying to find who else suffers from this issue.

    Eric


  9. @br106 –

    Can you tell me more about the error messages you are seeing in eric4? Since eric4 is written in Python I would not expect errors as a result of QScintilla (not) being rebuilt.

    Eric


  10. @br106 – and to everybody in general…

    Well duh! I had a QScintilla-2.4.6 package as a dependency to KDE 4.6.0 but when I prepared the package set for KDE 4.6.1 I forgot to add that package to the 4.6.1 “deps” directory.

    I have now re-added the QScintilla-2.4.6 package. Everybody who upgraded from KDE 4.5.5 to KDE 4.6.1 (omitting KDE 4.6.0) should update his original Slackware package of QScintilla-2.4.5 with my newer package found in the “deps” directory for your architecture.

  11. Eric – I’m not using either the Chrome Browser or the “lastpass” extension. I am using FF-4rc1 from testing. Willy suggested raising the number of MAXCLIENTS from the default to some higher number. The default was 256, and I raised it to 512. That did not solve the problem. I was still running well with 296 open sockets, but I took a 3 hour nap before I go to work tonight and it was hung at 292 open. I killed X and its fine again. Since I am the only user in the house, I’m set to automatically restart X and login.




  12. KDE-4.6.1 is where this problem started. However, I just finished a 9 hour shift, came home, and only 172 sockets were open. It usually only takes an hour for it to rear its ugly head – but not this time! Maybe it fixed itself. 🙂




  13. Mike Langdon, you jest about the problem resolving its self, but i had the same issue with 4.6 beta 2 and after a few days it just started to work.


  14. As a test, I installed the “eric” IDE on my laptop (running KDE 4.6.1) and indeed, it crashes seconds after starting.
    I will rebuild the QScintilla package.

    i guess that is something with guidance-power????



  16. Thanks for the log you provided, specialized.

    Indeed, Robby Workman already mentioned to me that he suspected guidance-power-manager after he had a discussion about the X11 clients issue with someone else who reported about it.

    Definitely, you are better off without “guidance-power-manager” if you are using KDE4. It will conflict with KDE4’s own powerdevil.

    Run “removepkg guidance-power-manager” and see if that solves your issue.

  17. I just woke up since this morning, and saw this about guidance-power-manager. Wouldn’t you know that KDE reported that gpm had quit working and the app crashed. Now it seems I know how it “fixed” itself!






  18. I haven’t had VLC open in a long time, but this morning I decided to listen to a few tracks. I don’t know when it happened, or why, but there is no longer any wait when opening a second file. I wasn’t using a list, just selecting here and there. The wait is gone from before!




  19. Hi Eric. I guess you must be quite busy with slackware 13.37 stuffs in the backgraound. Is there any chance we get your slackbuilds for kde 4.6.2?


  20. Hi escaflown

    I am running KDE 4.6.2 on this laptop at the moment. Real life is eating up my free time, so it all takes a little longer than I would like. I hope to have the 32bit packages built by tomorrow morning so that I can upload them.

    Eric
