Re: [Closed] KDE 4.3 beta (4.2.63) repo

4.2.90 was released last week. I am about to upload 4.2.91 to kde-unstable.

But let's not forget: 4.2.90 was a real release while .91 etc. are just weekly snapshots.

Re: [Closed] KDE 4.3 beta (4.2.63) repo

Thinking about it, now when there is official kde-unstable repo (I dunno for how long time it's running), there's probably no point in maintaining the mine. So I officially announce kde-4.3-beta repository is closed up now. I'll keep packages there for few weeks, then I'll remove them.

If you are still interested in using KDE 4.3, here is the official kde-unstable repo:

[kde-unstable]
Server=ftp://ftp.hosteurope.de/mirror/ftp.archlinux.org/kde-unstable/os/i686/

[kde-unstable]
Server=ftp://ftp.hosteurope.de/mirror/ftp.archlinux.org/kde-unstable/os/i686/

Just replace the path with your favorite mirror.

Don't cry guys, I'll be back with KDE 4.4 unstable repository (until Pierre create the official one ;-) )

PS: Thanks for your support guys, I really enjoyed doing this work for you people.

Re: [Closed] KDE 4.3 beta (4.2.63) repo

Oh, it wasn't my intention that you drop your work. Please note that kde-unstable is really what it is called and should only be used by the who know about using the testing repo and have subscribed to arch-dev-public.

The new set of packages will break things and the update wont be smooth.

@ProgDan: Maybe we can join our efforts to work on one set of packages. I am allwys happy for any feedback.

Re: [Closed] KDE 4.3 beta (4.2.63) repo

@Pierre: Well, kde-unstable and my kde-4.3-beta were the same. Now there is no use in keeping the my one when there is official repo :-) It seems you've split the packages to individual programs like kdemod (cool!) which is definetely better solution then my.
Also, thanks for your offer, I'm quite busy now (so dropping kde-4.3-beta is really useful for me) but during summer holiday I'd be glad to help you (or anyone else :-) ) with KDE.
I also think about applying for TU sometimes during summer, so then it could be easier to cooperate.

Re: [Closed] KDE 4.3 beta (4.2.63) repo

Thank you ProgDan for allowing me to use this KDE 4.3 in the past, and good luck with your other project. It's good there is an official KDE4 unstable now.

Btw the code for the repo should be :

[kde-unstable]
Server=ftp://ftp.hosteurope.de/mirror/ftp.archlinux.org/kde-unstable/os/i686/

and it seems the meta package in the KDE 4.3 unstable are not working as expected: once installed, they didn't provide any dependency, so I had to install all package using "pacman -S kde"

KDE4 is really looking and behaving better and better!

How frequently will the kde-unstable repo be updated?
