KDE 4.6 second release candidate
Here it is, the second release candidate of what will become KDE Software Compilation 4.6.
Get your Slackware packages for KDE 4.6.RC2 (4.5.95 is the official version) here: http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/4.5.95/ or on any of my mirrors (http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/alien-kde/4.5.95/ or http://repo.ukdw.ac.id/alien-kde/4.5.95/). These packages are not fit for Slackware 13.1. You have to be running an up-to-date Slackware-current!.
Follow the instructions in the accompanying README for installing these packages, or upgrading from an earlier release.
You can read my previous article on KDE 4.6 beta and RC1 here: http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/starting-with-kde-4-6 and http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/kde-4-6-first-release-candidate/. KDE 4.6 no longer needs HAL I have disabled HAL on my laptop (chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.hald), and do not miss any functionality.
And I will repeat this from the previous post: read the announcement by the PIM team (read the story) that the 4.6 version of kdepim which should have accompanied the official release of KDE 4.6 has been delayed. At the time when KDE 4.6 will be officially released, you may want to keep the stable PIM release 4.4.9 which is already part of slackware-current and which is fully compatible with KDE 4.6.
In the meantime, I ship packages for the third beta of kdepim 4.6 along with KDE 4.5.95.
Have fun, Eric
