sfcrazy (1542989) writes "openSUSE and KDE teams are working on creating four KDE SC repositories for openSUSE which will enable users to get the the kind of experience they want. Users can stick to the default repos that come with openSUSE if they want to use what openSUSE offers. Those users who want to stay updated with the latest KDE SC releases can use the "KDE:Current" repository which will always remain updated. 3rd repo "KDE:Distro:Factory" will offer KDE packages which are being tested and prepared before they are pushed to the 'Current' repo. The fourth repo "KDE:Unstable:SC" will offer early builds as they are being devloped."

OpenSUSE To Offer Rolling Release KDE Experience

Comments Filter:
  • Sooo, KDE goes Debian. No shame in there, it happens to the best so certainly KDE can be excused.

    • How would i do this with Debian Stable? The latest KDE (or near enough latest) isn't in backports and i can't find any repos (that don't constantly break or have missing dependencies) that have it.

      I ended up moving towards Debian Testing (which is fine) but i'm interested in how you would do it.
      • I'm not doing that :) I dislike KDE much, so I'm not even using it, sorry...
        I was just trying to say that KDE, as an infrastructure project, seems to take on Debian's system as a distribution of always having a fixed number of well-defined releases "in the air". For Debian ofcourse these are stable, testing, unstable and experimental.
        B.t.w. testing is indeed fine to use for desktop systems; it has about the stability of other distributions' stable releases.

          But then your original comment doesn't make sense as KDE isn't doing anything different than they were prior to the announcement. Opensuse.org is making a change, but not KDE.

  • I am willing to click on ads here that I've Amazoned cookies from,

    and even mercifully post on starving threads to get the comment number up.

    I would like to apply for an ampersand to be printed after my nom de guerre.

    • A subscription ain't all it used to be cracked up to be. The 2-minute-between-comments plumb disappeared a few weeks ago. At 5 minutes I participate far less frequently than I used to.

      Speaking of which, and to further erode comment quality (not going to wait 5 minutes to post on another thread), I'll just mention that the kde-redhat project has been doing this on Fedora for about seven years and it works well.

      Rex and his crew do a great job.

      • I've investigated the possibility of intelligent life on some of alternatives to le site de la ligne verte. Without exception, when they have been weighed and measured, they have been found wanting. It's like work reading through the banal to get to the rare gem. This site is not without it's flaws, but like democracy, it's still the best option available.

        And you're a four-digit slash-daddy with a subscription... you not going anywhere.

    So i guess I will be able to install the latest gimp, blender, inkscape, vlc, etc... no more errors, no more compiling, because the distro is up to date and compatible with the new software. With windows 7/8.1 you can install old(not all dos programs) or new versions of a software on it without worrying it's gonna break or not install at all. Linux developer communities forgot the most important thing about an OS is the type of software(photoshop, office, quickbooks, gimp, libreoffice, etc.... that you can

      Windows backwards compatibility? don't make me laugh. I've had to deal with so much shit while transitioning users from XP to 7, it's unbelievable. Don't even think about 8.1!

    Great news! OpenSuSE is a terrific distro and having the latest KDE packages will make it nearly perfect. I'm going to be changing my repositories as soon as these new ones are available.

    • I think I'll need to try out OpenSUSE, just for this reason. I've been using Fedora 20 lately and surprisingly there's been very few issues, which is contrary to impression I got back when I was using 12 & 13.

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
