Warning: Do not update to the packages from KR48

Posted on: June 11, 2012

Do not update to the packages in the KDE:Release:48 repo. The repo is currently broken.

See http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-kde/2012-06/msg00034.html and http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=133931384906792&w=2.

UPDATE: Issues seem to be sorted out by now.

Hi gentleman,
What do you mean with broken? I am running a system after updating from the repository you have mentioned and everything works fine so far. Could you please be more precise with the warning?

See http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-kde/2012-06/msg00034.html and http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=133931384906792&w=2

It seem the crash related to nepomuk. I had nepomuk disabled, so KDE run just fine on my system. The only problem I had is Calligra keep crashing after uptdated to the latest version.

Please do let us know when things are sorted out. Or if there’s a repository with working 4.8.2 or 3 that we can downgrade to.

I need to remember to wait 2 weeks before upgrading…

Then, what can I do if I want to update my kde??

Wait little bit…

Hi Ladies and Gentlemen,

The single crash I had after updating to KR48 so far happened with Dolphin. I then removed dolphinrc as well as the folder dolphin under respectively ~/.kde4/config and ~/kde4/apps. I launched again the application and since then it is not crashing anymore.

This walk-a-round could maybe apply to the other applications. Give it a try.
openSUSE is unbreakable.

Have a lot of fun …

OK, it works now. However, mails received during the broken period are not indexed by nepomuk😦

Akonadi doesn’t seem to care about whether the mails are correctly indexed or not. Is there any rescanning possible?

It’s even more interesting that only SOME messages are not indexed :-S

After logging out and in it started crashing again! Don’t update until someone else confirms it working!!!

Seems to work perfectly now…
