Anatomy of KDE4Daily

A few people have asked about making installable or LiveCD versions of KDE4Daily, so I've put together a kind of "Making of ... "for the project. You can find it here:

Hope people find it useful/ interesting! :)

Thanks, this is a great project! I have never been able to successfully compile KDE from SVN. Are you accepting Paypal donations?

Hi!

Glad it has been of some use to you :) The offer of a donation is much appreciated (it's 7:45am here, but you've already made my day! :)), but I don't really need the money at the moment. I would be grateful if you would donate it to the charity of your choice, instead :)

Cheers!
Simon

I'm a regular donor to KDE so I'll just keep at that, then. Thanks.

Sorry to keep bothering you, but when filing bugs on this, how should I mention KDE as being built? From SVN?

SSJ said...

No problem at all :)

In any drop-down boxes, it's best to pick SVN. In the actual bug-report body, please mention that you are using KDE4Daily, and give the revision number: see e.g.

http://etotheipiplusone.com/kde4daily/docs/kde4daily.html#Which_Revision

and

Cheers!
