    KOffice 1.2 for every distribution but Debian?
    Submitted by hildeb on Saturday, November 02, 2002 – 06:36
    KDESomebody was complaining about “Debian losing mindshare”. Right now I was considering to install KOffice 1.2, just to find that there are no packages available. Same for KDE 3.0.4 .
    I have to go to http://www.kde.org just to find that I have to add another line to my apt/sources.list to benefit from the latest stable KDE release.

    But for KOffice there’s no official or at least semi-official Debian package to download.

    DanielS: News to me. Have a look at the FAQ, and you’ll find … KOffice packages. KDE is coming to sid within a couple of weeks; we’ve had to wait on account of g++ 3.2. I don’t like it much more than you do.

    Calc told me on IRC 12 hours ago that the KDE3 upload to unstable will be starting within a few days.

    So they are not going to wait for gcc 3.2 to be the default compiler anymore, huh? Anyway, what’s keeping gcc 3.2? sid still has old trusty gcc 2.95… Well, at least glibc 2.3 is in…

    Subject: GCC 3.2 is not _default_
    Author: Miciah
    Date: Wednesday, 2002/11/13 – 23:11
    The keyword is ‘default’. GCC 2.95 is still the default which means that Debian’s packages are compiled with it. The problem is that C++ software compiled with 2.95 is binary-incompatible with C++ software compiled with 3.2. So if you want to compile a typical program in Debian with 3.2 then you must recompile a bunch of libraries too.

    Yes, I’ve been hinting at it, but it’s not a fact we broadcast. Why? We were meant to have it there last Sunday, but there were last minute technical bitches, and don’t want to be held to a deadline.
