KDE on Unix and other platforms
Reza Arbab wrote in to inform us that IBM has made KDE 1.1.2 and KDE 2.0.1 available (download here) for AIX. Reza intends to keep up to date with the latest KDE releases, but does need help with currently OS-specific parts of KDE (related to sound, kcontrol info panels, etc). Thanks Reza, thanks IBM.
We will be releasing an update of Kivio early next week that also includes the source. We have been getting a lot of requests for packages for systems that we just don't have access to. We will be creating RPM's for RH 6.2 and 7.0 as well as a DEB by using Alien (DEB packagers are welcome). We will also supply tarballs for Slackware 7.1.
KDE 2.0 final is now available from the ports tree. Use cvsup to sync your ports tree with the master site, and then enjoy KDE 2 with
cd /usr/ports/x11/kde2 ; make install
as root. Finally, a KDE more recent than 1.94. Only thing that seems missing is kdepim. Hopefully this also fixes the compilation problem leading to an unusable khtml on FreeBSD. See
FreshPorts for more details. Enjoy. ;-)
