KDE's people: Lars Knoll

There's no possibly better way to present Lars to KDE fans than this: "please, meet Lars KHTML...errr! Lars Knoll". Our ever-resourceful Tink brings into near-view one of the legendary developers of the most powerful and most modern Free Software HTML rendering widget in existence. You're our guest into this new episode of People Behind KDE.

Hi

I am one of the non technical linux users around. I find it difficult to update and keep track of all packages available on kde. I was just wondering if an automatic update program wont be available. I read something about a program called INCA?

Thank you for a good product.

Regards

Just use whatever software your distro uses to update your system, such as apt-get or yup. KDE is a package, just like every other package, and should be upgradable just like everything else is. If you distro doesn't provide a way to automatically easily upgrade, you should consider looking at another distro that does.

as AArthur wrote: find a good distro... I recoment Linux-Mandrake 7.2 for the not-so-technical user. Its easy to figure out, and the update program is a wiz. Happy downloading ;)

I am using redhat 6.2. I do not want to change to mandrake due to several reasons. I Also cannot download mandrake because I live in africa and it will take 10000 years with my bandwith and a small fortune. Surely an atitude of changing distros to accomodate KDE wont win you any new followers. I am forced to stick with your competitors product because you do not have an easy update as they do and I therefor have to wait 6 months or longer for new stuff.

I first heard of KDE a bit more than three years ago, when Kalle wrote an article in the german Ct (a computer magazine)

well, i guess i just had a deja vu :)
could it be, that the whole core KDE team was founded this glorious day when "Kalle wrote an article"? ;)
this is at least the third time i read this.

Kalle should write more articles ;·)
And they should be reproduced/translated in every country's computer mags :·)

Well, IIRC; at the time there were perhaps 35 of us already, but that article might have doubled that number.

In those days, a KDE article in a major mag was such big a deal that we actually updated our web pages in minutes to reflect it ;-)
