Amarok crashes

in the last couple of days, Amarok crashes at startup with a SIGABRT error.
Before I open a bug report on it, has anyone experienced the same problem?
I am using the latest sources on a fresh new build?

packaging for mageia ( WAS mandriva years ago )

having a look around to see if I could get packages for mageia 3 or
mageia 4, I found a very old :


mageia was mandriva years ago, so you re probably mostly ready to
provide packages for mageia, but this old mandriva repo is probably
not working "as is" with latest mageia

I think quite a few mageia users could be happy to have a kde3 revived
desktop, just like I am, and i d be willing to help you for mageia
testing and packaging

( mageia is still a very old redhat fork , using rpm packages )

Docbook catalogs in SGML causes FTBFS

Hi all,

during the last build filelight on Debian 8 (Jessie), I came across a serious 
problem with Docbook - catalogs in SGML format is no longer supported. So I 
prepared a XML version of catalogs. Please, before I'll push the patch, test 
it on other distributions.

See bug 2077:

Commits web page

The commits web page is fragmented. Using the script Slavek wrote several months ago, my local version of
the commit page contains quite a few more entries than the online version. There is a large gap between July
8 and July 14 and a gap between July 14 and today.

New TDE Classic menu sidebar image proposed for v14.0.0

Dear all,
in bug 2074 Alex has proposed a new image for the TDE Classic menu sidebar for v14.0.0.
Before pushing it to GIT, I would like to hear your thoughts on the new look.
Personally I think it's great and more in style with the changes already made to KPersonalizer and the new
default splash screen.
I have attached a sample image of what a new menu looks like.

Taskbar icons

When changing the panel height from 37 to 38 pixels, the taskbar icon buttons start stacking. Is there a way
to stop that stacking behavior?

FYI: hal removed from Jessie

Michele, Tim,

as I noticed HAL has been removed from Jessie:

Revision 3841
Modified Wed Apr 23 13:19:34 2014 UTC (9 days, 21 hours ago) by biebl 
Mark the hal packages as kfreebsd-any hurd-any. On Linux they have been
superseded by udev/udisks/upower.

This means that kpowersave has no meaning build for Jessie.

FYI: libr and tdelibs are broken again on Jessie

Michele, Tim, others

well, libr and maybe tdelibs are broken again on Jessie. Update binutils broke 
the compatibility. I'll send updated libr package to build-farm, when I'll 
know that on the build-farm have been updated base build-root for Jessie.

Suggestion Metabug

Hi all,

by strolling through Bugzilla, especially Bug 2014, i've noticed that
there are several Bugs seems to have similar problems. Mainly:
 885: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=885
1879: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1879
1887: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1887
1888: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1888
1892: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1892
1947: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1947
1971: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1971
1976: http://bugs.pearsoncomputing.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1976

What about making an metabug to keep those bugs together and have an
overview over the status

Just my 2 cents

Greetings Werner

Build failures

Fresh clean build last night. I ran into two build failures with tdegames and tdeaddons:


/dev/shm/tdegames/kpat/freecell-solver/move.c:468: undefined reference to `convert_freecell_num'


/dev/shm/tdeaddons/atlantikdesigner/designer/designer.cpp:30:29: fatal error:
atlantic/estate.h: No such file or directory

Any ideas?
