Back online

Ok, so finally I'm back online.
When I came back from LinuxTag last sunday, my development box didn't boot anymore :-/
It took until today to get it working correctly again (RAM, mainboard, power supply were suspect).

KDEs printing support rocks :-)

So I fiddled around with hardware last week, accepted that my board really doesn't like DDR400 RAM and got my first SATA disk working, main problem were BIOS issues. Well, finally I have enough disk space for the complete KDE/trunk/ again :-)

svn is slow...

svn is slow.
Ever tried svn commit or cleanup over trunk KDE ?
I started a commit, pressed Ctrl-C to cancel it. It didn't cancel within maybe half a minute.
I killed it with -9.
Then I tried update, but it told me that it was locked and I should do a cleanup. So I did a cleanup. It took approx. 5 minutes :-/

CMake sadness ?

Hi,

well, since it seems some discussions are nowadays done via blogs, let me say something as reply to [http://aseigo.blogspot.com/2006/04/cmake-sadness.html | CMake Sadness] by Aaron.

So, building KDE is a huge task. Building KDE 4 is a much harder task than build KDE 1, 2 or 3.

LinuxQuestions.org Awards 2005 results :-)

Hiya,

the results of the 2005 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Award are there.
Although the announcement: "Among the winners are Ubuntu, Firefox, MySQL and OpenOffice.org." doesn't sound too good for KDE, here's a (only slightly) closer look at the result :-)

Wanna have regular regression builds ? Continous builds ? Continous unit testing ?

Well, if you want that, you can have it today for trunk/KDE/kdelibs/.
The cmake ( http://www.cmake.org ) developers have been so nice to setup a dashboard for KDE:

I did it !!! :-)

Hi,

just now the first complete compile run of trunk/kdelibs/ finished using cmake as build system. :-))
Only minor things are still missing: khtml (gcc 3.2 is not able to compile it), install rules for headers, some configure checks are still missing.

Building KDE 3 software using cmake

Some weeks ago I blogged how I managed to compile kpager using cmake. In the meantime the am2cmake script was a bit fine tuned and now even more works. The script and the KDE 3 support files for cmake have finally entered KDE svn, so you can get it from here: http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdesdk/cmake/
So here we go:

Simplistic KDE performance numbers

Hiya,

here's a *very* simple way to get a performance number for KDE:

$ time konsole -e sh -c exit

This gave me the following numbers:

0.75 seconds on a notebook, Sempron 3000+, SUSE 10.0
0.80 seconds on a desktop, Athlon XP+ 2000, Slackware 9.1, KDE compiled from svn
1.0 seconds on a notebook, Intel P4 M, 1.8 GHz, SUSE 10.0
1.0 seconds on a notebook, Intel P4 M, 1.8 GHz, kUbuntu 5.10
