It’s again the bad time of the year. No it’s not yet my birthday, it’s just another release of KDE (3.5.5).
As usual, the pre-release won’t be available for Gentoo users, you are not supposed to find a way to use it as we might change the ebuild without warning. Until the ebuilds are in package.mask, they are considered in flux.
Actually, the long run started last night, when I moved the tarballs from the KTown server to Pitr, to run the ebuild generation script. So thanks again to the AMD64 Arch team for allowing me to use Pitr, as it has a bit more bandwidth than I have 🙂 The ebuilds were ready during the night, but of course I had to download all of KDE data locally to be able to digest them. Now I’m building kdelibs, and it will take a bit before I can actually start the rest of KDE emerge.
I love Unix shells’ oneliners, because there are a lot of passages to do, to add the new ebuilds to cvs, to digest them, to commit them, without oneliners, I’d be really screwed 🙂
