Re: KDE not in Debian?
The kde team has done a great job integrating the debian package building
code into their CVS. Or was it a Debian developer that did this. Whoever
it was... kudos to them.
It's a shame that the issues (??) with the
license remain. But I for one really don't care. I love debian, and sometimes
I like using KDE. And as long as KDE is available as Debian packages, or
I can build debian packages for KDE, I don't care wether it is included
in the standard Debian distro or not. I'll just have to add another line
to my sources.list for apt-get. This is why I love Debian.
really like to see is a source version of apt-get. Like the FreeBSD ports
collection. I think distributing KDE source should not be a problem. And
obviously distributing qt by itself is not a problem (It's already included
in debian I think). So just do something like "apt-get source-install kdebase".
It gets the qt packages required, installes them, gets the kde source, compiles
it on the user machine and installes it. That should work.
