Hi all,

Still working on my Xorg problems...but, figured I'd start downloading KDE overnight. I've got 3.3 building on an x86 box...and thought I'd go for that on ppc...but, when I did ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~ppc" emerge -p kde

I got messages saying ebuilds that could satisfy ?=virtual/jdk-1.4 have been masked...etc.

Is the new version just not ready for ppc yet?

Thanx,

cayenne

I think it is ready. I'm compiling kdelibs now. You can descend into /usr/portage/kde-base/kdelibs, and emerge a specific .ebuild from there. I usually do kdelibs (which depends on arts), and kdebase. If I need everything else, I emerge the packages one by one from there. That way, I start with a base system, and can work my way up.

There are some issues. I think a kdm bug managed to creep into non-x86 platforms, meaning it won't compile (which was fixed a couple of days ago) and kdeedu's kstars won't compile either (kstars has some non-x86 compile issues regarding sys/io.h).

Apart from that, it should work. I'm running CVS HEAD from yesterday and all is fine over here ;)

I managed to have compiled and installed KDE 3.3 successfully in my G5 under 2004.2 PPC64 linux. Some issues like sys/io.h in kdeedu, dcopidl2cpp in kdelibs,... I had to solve/work around them by maual modifications. The KDE seemed to be working fine but one weird problem: The key shortcuts donnt work as expected. For example, when I opened kwrite to input uppercase letters by pressing <shift>+<letter>, I got a menu displayed on the upper left of the window, listing all shortcut keys being able to use in editing. In fact this is true for all kde apps: <ctrl>/<shift>+<any key> would bring a menu listing all shortcuts available in the context out, even though not needed at all. Is this a feature of kde 3.3, or as I think, it is a problem?

So after running emerge sync, kde 3.3 is showing as stable, but I run into a snag at kdelibs.

Has anyone gotten kde 3.3 to emerge sucessfully?

iBook 800MHz, 2.6.8.1-pegasos-r2, gcc 3.3.3

Thanks!

Yes, sorry about that. It's fixed in both HEAD and KDE_3_3_BRANCH on cvs now. It's too bad no one reported the problem to us in time for the 3.3 release (none of the kstars devs uses PPC).

See bug 63231 if you're having issues playing Ogg Vorbis with KDE 3.3.0.

I ran into problems building kdelibs on my x86 box and found that downgrading gcc to 3.2 (I think it was) solved the problem. Dependiencies required the most recent gcc (3.4 ?)to finish building the rest of KDE's components. Building kdelibs on my two PPC was not a problem.

Building kde 3.3 was not a problem on my PowerBook G4/400 (gcc 3.2). The only weird thing I observe is that I get noise in the KDE system sounds. Playing xmms works fine though. I checked that KDE uses ALSA, but that does not differ from OSS.
