Re: What's the status of KDE in testing/etch?
Resent to ask the audience.
May I add that I am at 64bit not to carry out what I can do with debian 32
testing on my PC, but to speed up quantum mechanical calculations. What I
really need is X (I got beautifully as you describe below) and OpenMotif to
run a package (that I could compile for 64) that uses OpenGL for the graphics
engine, just to see the results in virtual space. Do you know the status of
these affairs in amd64 that we have installed?
Implicitly I need to recompile the generic kernel that I have installed.
Compiler/libraries (Motiv or Lesstif installed)?
PS: KDE would be very welcome anyway.
