    Default Is KDE 4.8 ready now?

    Is this repo - Index of /repositories/KDE:/Release:/48/openSUSE_12.1 stable enough now to be used with openSUSE 12.1?

    KDE-4.8 has not been released yet.
    The repositories at .../ReleaseL/48/ are in preparation, and do not contain a working set.

    The source for KDE-4.8rc2 has been released for testing. This is also known as KDE-4.7.97 and a useable build can be found in:
    repositories/KDE:/Unstable:/SC/openSUSE_12.1/
    Previously RC1 was there. I am using this for testing purposes only, it is not production ready.

    If you want a usable bleeding-edge KDE system, I would wait until 4.8 is released, and expect ...Release:/48 to contain a working system within about a week following release.

    Thanks for posting.

    I see that the repo referred to in the original post is made up of kde 4.7.98 - which I assume is a tweaked version of rc2.

    If you look carefully at the content (the clue is in the build numbers), you will see that those i586 packages are actually builds from 4.7.98 sources.

    Wait until 4.8 is released by KDE if you want a working system.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I will wait until kde 4.8 is in the main factory repo.

    some of kde4.8 is now in the repo

    the following requirements are not yet provided
    kdebase4-session-4.8.0-63.1.noarch requires kdebase4-workspace >= 4.8.0
    libkdeedu4-data-4.8.0-23.1.noarch requires libkeduvocdocument4 = 4.8.0
    python-kdebase4-4.7.98-728.1.x86_64 requires python-kde4 = 4.7.98

    due to the above the following packages were removed
    akonadi-4.7.4-6.9.x86_64
    kdepim4-4.7.4-6.9.x86_64
    kdepim4-runtime-4.7.4-6.3.x86_64
    kdepim4-wizards-4.7.4-6.9.x86_64
    kgpg-4.7.4-5.8.x86_64
    kmail-4.7.4-6.9.x86_64
    kontact-4.7.4-6.9.x86_64
    konversation-1.3.1-11.3.1.x86_64
    korganizer-4.7.4-6.9.x86_64

    apart from the above all is working very well
    new is high cpu useage after kde desktop comes up, only lasts for about 50 seconds
    start jingle has also gone
