So here they are, my packages (32-bit and 64-bit) for Slackware 13.1 that give you KDE SC 4.4.4!
The routine has not changed, and the README explains the simple upgrade process as always. This time, it is even easier because I did not have to update or add any dependencies. The KDE and KDEI packages are all that’s new.
There will be a source release of KDE 4.4.5 too, somewhere near the end of june, and then it’s waiting for a stable 4.5 release. I have no idea if there are going to be Slackware packages for 4.4.5 in slackware-current, but I am going to invest some time in checking out the build process for KDE SC 4.5.
Have fun! Eric
And oh, there is an easy way to mirror my KDE packages… using rsync! The rsync URI is rsync://alien.slackbook.org/alien-kde/ and these are the commands to either download 32-bit packages (will create a local “x86” directory) or 64-bit packages (will create a local “x86_64” directory):
$ rsync -av –progress rsync://alien.slackbook.org/alien-kde/4.4.4/x86 .
$ rsync -av –progress rsync://alien.slackbook.org/alien-kde/4.4.4/x86_64 .
Note the dot at the end of the command!
