Thread: KDE 4.7 in Tumbleweed?

  1. #1

    Default KDE 4.7 in Tumbleweed?

    Are there any plans for putting KDE 4.7 in Tumbleweed? KDE now is at 4.7.1, while Tumbleweed stagnates at 4.6.5. Though the OBS-repos for 11.4 still work in Tumbleweed also, this is probably not the preferred method for getting updated KDE packages.

    Yes they are. The KDE 4.7.1 update is being worked on right now.
    An update is expected soon.


    Remember to have fun!

    Are there any problems delaying the release? Just wondering, as at the moment the standard KDE repos seem to work with Tumbleweed flawlessly and there is no obvious stuff that has to be adapted (not that I'd complain about that .

    I've been traveling the past week, at the openSUSE conference, and just
    now returned home and have "real work" to get to before I can get back to
    the KDE 4.7.1 repo movement into Tumbleweed. It will take a few days
    once it is started at the least as it needs to be tested well in the
    Tumbleweed:Testing repo first, so I don't have the same problems that
    happened when 4.6 got introduced.

    Patience please. Remember, Tumbleweed is "openSUSE with stable updates",
    and those stable updates don't always happen immediately, but rather a
    few weeks later in order to ensure all is well, otherwise I'll get a lot
    of complaints about how I broke things.

    I do successfully run that kde4-4.7.1 overlay on Tumbleweed:
    baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/47/openSUSE_11.4/

    Turns out some minor package changes:
    kdebase4 is not needed any more, if you pull it anyway, it wants to downgrade all to kde4-4.6.5 again

    With the update when kdebase4-4.7.1-2.3.x86_64 was deleted, yast automatically installed
    plasmoid-folderview-4.7.1-3.1.x86_64.

    Suggest you check the latter is installed before proceeding further.

    Hello!

    Do you have any updates on getting KDE 4.7 into Tumbleweed? Are there any serious issues that need to be resolved or something?

    I ask just out of mere curiosity, I don't try to "push" or anything :-)

    Keep up the good work!
    Cheers, Tadeas

    No mystery here -- check post #4, paragraph #1

    I'd like to push this thread up - any news? As currently there seem to appear the first slight incompatibilities when using KDE repos for the "stock" distro (libgpgme). However, I think that currently the upcoming 12.1 takes up many ressources?
