KDE 4 Beta2

Post by Darksurf » Sat Sep 08, 2007 0:46

Does anybody know how to upgrade to KDE 4 SVN or Beta2. I keep trying but at least one package that I NEED won't compile. Every freakin' time I try to emerge either. I just get that one important package out of the 20 or more that won't compile and screws me up. Any ideas??

You can not maybe do a pretend something on it to see if it has blocked packages ?
Only place you might find good answers for kde 4 beta2 might be kde website , I would if it was me do a full uninstall of earlier kde versions and then try to install / compile this.

Code: Select all

sabayonx86 ~ # make --help
Usage: make [options] [target] ...
  -b, -m                      Ignored for compatibility.
  -B, --always-make           Unconditionally make all targets.
                              Change to DIRECTORY before doing anything.
  -d                          Print lots of debugging information.
  --debug[=FLAGS]             Print various types of debugging information.
  -e, --environment-overrides
                              Environment variables override makefiles.
  -f FILE, --file=FILE, --makefile=FILE
                              Read FILE as a makefile.
  -h, --help                  Print this message and exit.
  -i, --ignore-errors         Ignore errors from commands.
  -I DIRECTORY, --include-dir=DIRECTORY
                              Search DIRECTORY for included makefiles.
  -j [N], --jobs[=N]          Allow N jobs at once; infinite jobs with no arg.
  -k, --keep-going            Keep going when some targets can't be made.
  -l [N], --load-average[=N], --max-load[=N]
                              Don't start multiple jobs unless load is below N.
  -L, --check-symlink-times   Use the latest mtime between symlinks and target.
  -n, --just-print, --dry-run, --recon
                              Don't actually run any commands; just print them.
  -o FILE, --old-file=FILE, --assume-old=FILE
                              Consider FILE to be very old and don't remake it.
  -p, --print-data-base       Print make's internal database.
  -q, --question              Run no commands; exit status says if up to date.
  -r, --no-builtin-rules      Disable the built-in implicit rules.
  -R, --no-builtin-variables  Disable the built-in variable settings.
  -s, --silent, --quiet       Don't echo commands.
  -S, --no-keep-going, --stop
                              Turns off -k.
  -t, --touch                 Touch targets instead of remaking them.
  -v, --version               Print the version number of make and exit.
  -w, --print-directory       Print the current directory.
  --no-print-directory        Turn off -w, even if it was turned on implicitly.
  -W FILE, --what-if=FILE, --new-file=FILE, --assume-new=FILE
                              Consider FILE to be infinitely new.

Could try " make -i " and once complete "revdep-rebuild" or "emerge -D" the kde 4 beta 2 not sure how good a idea this is.
Can you somehow get a dependancy list for kde4 beta2 ?

Build packages from the kde4 beta2 without installing them including all dependancy's or similar ? This could bypass the bugs / errors not sure how.

Hope something here gets you in the right direction.
