Attention openSUSE KDE Factory Users

Posted in kde, opensuse by mschlander on 09/07/2010

With openSUSE 11.3 less than a week away, soon it’ll be time to think about 11.3+1 which will be released in March 2011 with KDE SC 4.6.

This should interest people using the KDE Factory repository a great deal, because it means that Factory should move to KDE SC 4.5 RC very shortly, and in November it will move to KDE SC 4.6 Beta. Leaving users with no choice other than using 4.6 Beta or downgrading to 4.4.4 which will be the version officially supported in 11.3 and available in the KDE Stable repository.

In other words, if you don’t wish to use KDE SC 4.6 Beta in November, don’t use the KDE Factory repository! Switch to the KDE Stable repository, which already has 4.4.4. Consider yourself warned.

    So does this mean that the KDE Stable repository will contain KDE SC 4.5 once it has been released? Inquiring minds want to know.

    You should probably add a KDE45 repository before you switch Factory to 4.6 as you did with 4.2 as well between openSUSE 11.1 and 11.2

      I agree, offering an easy way to get KDE 4.5 and then switching this repository to an unstable branch of KDE 4.6 does not seem to make much sense. I would have expected the upcoming KDE 4.6 inside UNSTABLE:
      Besides, switching from 4.5.0 directly to 4.6 beta implies skipping the expected bugfixes of the 4.5 branch.

    Both links to repositories point to the KDE Factory repo, the “stable” one should be corrected.

    Please make a separate KDE SC 4.5 Repo!
