Thread: beclock new version

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default beclock new version

    leaving aside the fact that I consider beclock the best clock in the world, better than rolex :-) and that I cannot live without it.
    how can I say to the people that fill suse repositories KDE extra that the version 0.14-1.5 is obsolete??
    and that in the site of the developer there is the 0.16 version that works perfectly on my KDE4.7??
    and that I will pay a couple of beers to have the last version on suse repos??

    thankyouverymuch

    what are the features available in .16 that you need?

    and, how big is your need for them?

    disappearing on mouse hoover, 0.14-1.5 doesn't works with KDE4.7 and 4.8, and date as I like, 2012-jan-26 and not 2012/01/26

    well then! if it is as important as bread and beer, then just go ahead
    and compile it locally..

    the easy steps are here: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=117542

    of course I've already done, I tried to survive with meat and wine..... , meat and bear..... , but I cannot survive without bread......
    after compilation it works perfectly, but I'm on tumbleweed so when often I update sometimes updating involve beclock too, I have to recompile, and as I think 98% of suselinuxkde users use this marvellousgorgeaouscannotlivewithout clock, they will be happy to have this new working version on our repos.....

    maybe you, or one of the others there would like to step up and be the
    maintainer for that package...and, get it ready for factory...once there
    (and has shown stability) it can move to Tumbleweed (but not before)..

    I'm only a user, I haven't skill to be a maintainer
    I can test it, and in kde4.7 is about 1 month it is working, no crash, and it seem stable, but the question was also another, is to post here the proper/better way to ask to the maintainers (that I suppose are the people that fill the repos) to update/upgrade the beclock??

    so, if you have it running then why do you want it in the Tumbleweed repo?

    becouse I think is better to have the last well working version in repos, and I'm on tumbleweed so when often I update, sometimes updating involve beclock too, I have to recompile...:-)

    well....you idea of what should be in the repos and openSUSE's idea are
    two different things, read this:

    http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Maintenance_policy

    on the whole it says we fix bugs and security problem, we don't just run
    in the latest version because it is available.....now, i think there are
    other distros which pander to the
    must-have-the-newest-of-everything.....but, that is not openSUSE..

    if you need the newest more than you need bread and beer you need to
    learn how to compile--or find a distro with a different version update
    strategy..
