KDE 3.0.1 unstable "bugs"(?)
Sorry if I repeat some long-discussed topic with this letter, but I'm
new to the list and haven't got the last few weeks' archive.
So, in medias res, my question/notice/whatever is that I installed the
unstable kde3 packages released at kde3.geniussystems.net (and also at
a few mirrors), but apt just doesn't seem to recognise them as "legal"
kde packages, so for example when I try to apt-get install some new
package with dependencies to kde (kdelibs or anything), it just
doesn't work, apt-get panicks saying that e.g. kdebase >2.2.2 is
needed, but it can't be installed. At first I thought that it's
because those packages are configured to a dependency to the kde3
(kdelibs3, kdebase3 - these are the 2.2.2 release packages, the
geniussystems stuff is named kdelibs4, etc.), so they don't recognise
that kdelibs4 is up and running. But I don't know... now I have to
recompile kde apps from sources, which is not too bad, but of course
uncomfortable, and renders apt-get a bit less of use for kde stuff
Maybe some of you have succesfully resolved this problem, and could
be of help...or maybe I should keep quiet and wait 'till an official
"mainstream" kde3 packageset is released.
Thank you in advance,
