KDE 3.3.2 in Fink unstable

I’ve released KDE 3.3.2 to Fink unstable (both 10.2-gcc3.3 and 10.3).

These packages include a number of bugfixes on top of what is listed in the general KDE 3.3.2 change log, including:

  • A fix for a regression from KDE 3.2 that causes massive slowdown in library-loading upon startup of KDE or KDE apps.
  • A modification to the esound aRts driver to hopefully make it work once enabled.
  • Lots of build dependency fixes.

This release is seeming to be clean enough to be a candidate for release to Fink stable. Please, if you have success (or problems!) let me know so I can get this in stable.

    I’ve had partial success with the KDE 3.3.2 update. I posted a short excerpt on fink-beginners. The complete output (3.7MB) is available here:

    Finked out my mac with bundle-kde-ssl in order to build Rosegarden. But sadly apparently there is no kdemultimedia included in the bundle (Rosegarden looks for artsmidi.idl).
    What to do?

  • artsmidi is all linux-specific code…. feel free to make a CoreMIDI driver for arts. 😉

  • Daniel Macks

    I see from ‘fink dumpinfo rosegarden’ that there is indeed a –disable-sound flag passed to ./configure.
    If you’re already finked out, you may as well use fink’s rosegarden pkg and save yourself from having to figure out how to compile it:) That’ll give you more time to contact the rosegarden developers and help them write CoreMIDI support.

    And what about the packages for KDE Mac ?

    One month since the last blog post…. RR must be coding like a son of a gun….

  • Or slackin’… 😉
    Actually I’ve been working on getting KDE 3.3.91 ready for Fink. KDE CVS is closed for commits that aren’t related to stabilizing 3.3.91, so I can’t commit any KDE/Mac changes right now anyways.
    I’ll get 3.3.91 out the door, and then work on KDE/Mac again when CVS opens up.

    KDE should be possible to be ported in Aqua with KDE studio ?
    There are already QT softwares that has been ported natively for Mac OS X Aqua like Quanta and Kivio on this web site : http://www.thekompany.com/products/kivio

  • Jack

    Yes and this version of Kivio is exatly the same one as the KDE one with some small enhancements and doesn’t need the 200 Mb of KDE stuff to be installed to be able to run.

    If you’ve moved on to 3.3.91 this may be a moot point, but I can’t convince 3.3.2 to compile wih Marc Liyanage’s libfreetype patch applied.
    http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/docs/openoffice-mac/
    Building always gives out with “/usr/X11R6/lib/libfreetype.la’ was moved.”
    Any thoughts? Feel free to email me if you’d like to discuss it further.
    Thanks for all the hard work.
