OK, first pass stuff ready for initial public testing and comment.
Included so far:
digikam-3.1.0 (includes kipi-plugins)
and available from kde-unstable repo for el6. Just plop
and enable kde-testing and kde-unstable repos
Requires one enable EPEL-6:
Optional addons available from:
* solid HAL backend not used by default
One known issue is that kde will not use it's solid HAL backend until
you manually define environment variable SOLID_HAL_LEGACY. I tested
adding a snippet ~/.kde/env/SOLID_HAL_LEGACY.sh containing:
SOLID_HAL_LEGACY=1; export SOLID_HAL_LEGACY
I may address this to set that automatically somehow.
Thanks for compiling these packages, Rex! I'm using them on my machine.
I have 3 questions:
1) Are you planning to build packages for the more recent KDE 4.10
bugfix releases? I like to use the .4 or .5 releases if I can, since
they've had the most time for bug-fixing.
2) Would you be able to post your source rpms online as well? I didn't
find them when I browsed the repository online, but if I had them I
might build some of the more recent 4.10 code.
3) Is there any way to let people help build more recent releases, if
it's too much for you to do by yourself?
