1 Hi all,
3 The kde2.2 packages are available on cvs/rsync and have been for some time.
4 Recently I cleaned up and unified them, and added object prelinking support
5 (via objprelink USE flag). AFAIK kde2.2 is now stable and gentoo-ready; now
6 we need both developers and users to test it, to uncover any
7 bugs/typos/whatever and be able to unmask it with a clear conscience. Please
8 reply, not only with bugs, but with success stories as well. (BTW I now use
9 it myself with no trouble.)
11 Upgrade note: the gentoo /opt/kde${PV} system has one flaw, namely that it
12 doesn't take the user-specific settings dir ~/.kde into account, and all kdes
13 installed get to access the same dir. Therefore people upgrading from kde
14 2.1.x or 2.0.x shuold make a backup of their ~/.lde, and restore it before
15 using their old version of kde again.
17 BTW, tell us if there's any need for full support for multiple kde versions,
18 or is upgrade-only support (as now) enough. Final note: a known TODO is
19 adding support for multiple KDEDIRS in the path for libs/bins.
