Here is a k3b crash-on-exit:
Are these the only KDE 3 apps crashing? We have reports about this indeed,
we thought it was caused by something linked in by
xine-lib-extras-freeworld (maybe ffmpeg), not by kdelibs3, but kdelibs3
might be a common point we haven't thought of yet. Rex?
What else do I need other than what debuginfo-install k3b kaffeine
The missing debuginfo package is probably the one for libselinux, but I
don't think we need it, the bug is not there anyway, it's a memory
corruption somewhere which makes libselinux fail its cleanups. The latest
news I have is that something tries calling close(-1) according to
Valgrind, but we haven't found the offender yet (Valgrind just warns about
the invalid parameter to close() but produces no backtrace for that).
Unmaintained doesn't necessarily mean bad. If something is fully
functional then it can go unmaintained for years. gwenview is not
KDE is about being good, not about being light. ;-)
Meanwhile, I have nothing against GTK+ 1.
It has been obsolete for 7 years, it has got no updates whatsoever from
upstream, not even bugfixes, for 8 years (they stopped updating it even
before GTK+ 2 was officially released) and who knows how many of the
security issues found and fixed in GTK+ 2 also apply to it and nobody
noticed (other than blackhats).
How long should such a compat lib be kept on life support? I think we've
reached the point where the apps which are still using it are either dead
themselves (and thus should be EOLed along with the ancient compat lib) or
have upstreams which just don't care about the problem (in which case
telling them they'll be dropped from Fedora if they don't port to to
current libs might get them moving - if not, their upstream isn't any more
useful than a dead one and the package should be EOLed as unmaintainable).
The best audio application still uses GTK+, and that, I think, is a
sufficient proof that GTK+ is better than GTK2+.
Don't tell me you mean XMMS with "the best audio application"...
There are plenty of alternatives which don't rely on obsolete libraries,
including Audacious which is based on XMMS code and keeps its user
I also started thinking that all we need to swallow is that Qt3 is
better than Qt4.
And even if it was, that wouldn't change the fact that it's deprecated and
no longer maintained by upstream and packages using it need to be migrated
off it ASAP.
The same thing I said about GTK+ 1 also applies to Qt 3: I don't think it
makes sense to keep it around forever. For a few years, to give apps time
to port, sure, definitely. But forever, no.
If by "font acceleration" you mean
"Anti-aliasing", turning it off
doesn't do any good. kfontview still shows a blank window. If by "font

Completely untested, of course, as I don't have NVidia sh*t.
Yes, nvidia sucks by not open sourcing their driver. But I do not
