    New sources.list entry for KDE 2
    Contributed by Anonymous on Monday, December 04 @ 18:01:36 GMT

    This has been on the mailing lists for about a week now but it deserves better annoucement. See for details. Here's the annoucement from Ivan

    The APT format HAS changed. 🙂

    deb potato main qt1apps optional crypto

    main = kde 2 + kde2 based apps
    qt1apps = qt1 based apps and kde 1.1.2
    crypto = kdebase-crypto and kdelibs-crypto ... + libssl096 (pretty much it)
    optional = updated packages (from woody) such as apache and any ssl based app (all compiled against libssl096). Not necessary (or at least shouldn't be..but not tested)

    that format is not going to change. I'm still doing builds/uploads of kde1 stuff...
