    KDE 3.0.2 debs now available from the usual place
    Submitted by robot101 on Wednesday, June 26, 2002 – 14:46
    KDEI’ve seen one or two articles in the submission bin saying things like ‘finally KDE has been packaged’ and ‘forget Debian, someone has done these debs here’ etc. And then they refer to the repository of KDE3 debs which have been made by Chris Cheney (calc), Debian’s official KDE maintainer, which has now existed for going on a month, if not more. It seems some people just didn’t notice. So, this is just a reminder. They exist, they are here, they are semi-official and apparently they now have KDE 3.0.2. And no, they won’t be included in woody, they will be going into sid when the bugs are squashed. See #debian-kde on irc.debian.org for more information.

    Does anyone know what library dependencies are needed to get kde 3.02 running under Woody? Is there some specific reason why Sid is it, or would kde3 come out in Woody with a later release (e.g., Debian 3.0 r2)?

    Woody is under freeze (nothing new goes in) in prep for release. The only way for KDE3 to make it in is to lift the freeze or make an exception to allow it to be introduced.

    The reason why if it doesn’t make it into woody before release it will not make it into Debian 3.0 r2.. . is the same as the reason why Potato has back-patches for software is 2 years old.

    It’s to have a stable platform. This is one of the reasons I love Debian. In theory absolutely everything developed on Debian 2.2 r1 should be compatable with Debian 2.2 r2 through r6. All of the backpatching is as close to you can get to that.

    Working for a company that runs around 1500 Windows servers you’d be able apprieciate
    how much fun we have to figure out why when your application was compiled at the first release of Win2K it now breaks with SP2… reason is MS rolls together security updates, hotfixes, new features and API ‘updates’ altogether in one package.
