Re: Trying bleeding edge KDE; was: The debian directory in kde sources
I can tell you my method.
I download and update every week or so from svn (used to be cvs),
compile and install on my home in debian or on an alternative
directory according to gentoo methods.
After installing arts, kdelibs,kdebase (a couple of hours) I login and
everthing is fine. The whole set of packages takes about other 4
hours. I made some simple scripts to made everything user friendly
In my experience beta versions are waste of time, i just update with
"svn up" and recompile when I want the latest changes.
Pretty much a developer task, but I don't develop anything in KDE :-)
I have had some problems, but I dont even remember the last.
