KDE SC 4.5.0 RC2 From Eric

Eric has uploaded KDE SC 4.5.0 RC 2 on his KTown repository. This is still considered unstable release, so it's intended only for testing and for developers who wanted to test their application on the newest version of KDE. The final version should be released on August.

As usuall, i'm mirroring the packages in UKDW's Repository Server for those who wanted to try this version.

PS: Don't use this version on Slackware less than 13.1. It would be better if you use Slackware-Current to test this packages.

Update (10 July 2010): It has been fully mirrored in UKDW's Repository Server. You can use this commands to mirror using rsync :
mkdir 4.4.92
cd 4.4.92

for 32 bit
rsync -vaz --delete --progress rsync://repo.ukdw.ac.id/alien-kde/4.4.92/x86/ .

for 64 bit
rsync -vaz --delete --progress rsync://repo.ukdw.ac.id/alien-kde/4.4.92/x86_64/ .

Running Rsync Via Proxy

One way to get the latest Slackware updates is by running rsync to syncronize your local repository and the main repository that hold the Slackware packages. Eric Hameleers has provided a great script called rsync_current.sh and how i modified this tool has been discussed on my previous post. In general, it works, except for one problem, when your computer is connecting to the Internet through a proxy.

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 192.168.1.1 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).
