KDE SC 4.4.5 by Erik

Eric has stepped up to release KDE SC 4.4.5, the (probably) last maintenance version for KDE 4.4.x version for Slackware 13.1 on his KTown repository. This is due to Pat is having other things to settle for now. Erik is hoping that Pat will also release the packages for -Current in the next following weeks on his blog post.

There are some changes in the requirements packages, so please pay attention if you wanted to upgrade to this version.

In the mean time, i'm mirroring this repository to UKDW's repo server. It should be done in the next hour or so Goodluck

Update (8 July 2010): It's now fully mirrored by UKDW's Repo Server. Also, Erik has uploaded a new update for Qt packages since he incorrectly fetch the wrong KDE repository after getting a report from one of the user who used his package on his blog. x86_64 packages has been uploaded and it has been mirrored as well while Erik is currently building for x86 architecture. I'll keep you updated when x86 packages has been uploaded as well 8-)

Right now, the correct Qt version for x86 architecture has been uploaded as well and it has been mirrored in UKDW's repo server.

My workstation at my office is connected to the Internet through a proxy, so i can't use normal rsync to work normally. I browsed the web and i found this site which tells us about how we should modify our squid configuration to allow rsync connection from any computer from our local networks. I asked my sysadmin to try this script. He agreed and he updated the squid configuration on the proxy.

Next, i need to update my environment variable RSYNC_PROXY to the host of the proxy and also the port. Let's say you are running a proxy on and port 8080, then you need to run …

NVidia Legacy Unix Driver Update

NVidia has released an updated legacy drivers to support X.Org 1.19 with ABI 23. It has been mentioned in the UNIX drivers, but you can directly find the drivers from the links below:
NVidia 304.134 (x86x86_64)NVidia 340.101 (x86, x86_64) I have tested the 304.134 driver and it's working great here. I can finally remove x from my /etc/slackpkg/blacklist file since it's a showstopper for me.
Aside from legacy driver, NVidia has also released their latest driver 375.26 (x86, x86_64), which brings support for newer cards and also many new features (including X.Org 1.19 with ABI 23 support).
