It all depends which "svn" he wants you to build: branches/KDE/4.4/ or trunk/KDE/. The former could probably be built with minor (if any) changes (except version bump) to current packaging while the latter will probably need more work. So for the former you can update orig tarball and build a couple of new source packages (which you need) while for the latter better build from sources. You don't need to purge the whole distro KDE in order to build the whole thing. Just install newer KDE to different prefix. Also consider using kdesvn- build. However, it might be a bit tough to start&test that new KDE. Btw, I have plans to update packages up to kdebase from branches/KDE/4.4 today since they fix some nasty bugs I'm interested in. What is more, KDE SC 4.4.2 is going to be tagged in six days. qt-kde.debian.net users will probably get it shortly after tagging since it is not an official archive. > In the case I need to rebuild KDE completely, where I can find > information about the dev packages I need to complete this task? Build-Depends of KDE source packages for 4.4.x should be a very good hints. E.g. $ apt-cache showsrc kde4libs > Which > is the package that needs to be purged in order to completely remove KDE > from my system? libkdecore5 and kdelibs5. This will also remove all 3rd party KDE applications though. -- Modestas Vainius <email@example.com>
