The problem with kde releases is that some apps are kde4 only, some are kf5 only, and some are both. Without checking each individual app, it's hard to tell.

We could drop KDE4, but that causes problems for apps like k3b and amarok. We could change the kde4 section where we are building kdelibs only and dependencies only and drop the rest.

Of the apps in the KDE Additional Applications section, I believe that okular is the only one that will not run with kf5 (although I have a git version running in that environment). Looking at the CMakeLists.txt file in each of the apps in the 15.12.1 directory:

konsole          is kf5 only
kmix             is OK for either envronment
Kate             is kf5 only
Ark              is kf5 only
libkcddb         is kde4 only
Kdepim-runtime   is kf5 only
Kdepim           is kf5 only
libkexiv2        is kf5 only
Kdeplasma-addons is not in 15.12.1
Okular           is kde4 only
libkdcraw        is kf5 only
Gwenview         is kf5 only

For KDE4 Core packages that match filenames in the 15.12.1 directory:

akonadi          is kf5 only
kdelibs          is kde4 only (version 4.14.16)
kdepimlibs       is kde4 only
baloo-widgets    is kf5 only
kde-runtime      is kde4 only
kde-baseapps     is kde4 only

Checking the i18n files (only en_GB), it appears that it supports both environments.

The question is: Which way do we go for the book?

I've read this one earlier, today, couldn't get a mental summary for my opinion and cannot read very well now. Tomorrow, will try. Sorry, for the delay.

comment:7 by bdubbs@…, 6 years ago

The above entry for kdepimlibs is incorrect. It is kf5 only.

comment:8 by bdubbs@…, 6 years ago

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

Fixed at revision 16805.

Note that some upstream directories have been removed so I had to change urls for the KDE4 kdepim and kdepim-runtime to the BLFS master repository.

Also, the build stats other than md5sums did not change.

Closing the ticket but we still need to decide about how long we need to keep KDE4 around.

Replying to bdubbs@…:

We could drop KDE4, but that causes problems for apps like k3b and amarok. We could change the kde4 section where we are building kdelibs only and dependencies only and drop the rest.

So, kdelibs only and dependencies left, thus k3b and amarok would not be broken. OK, with me.

Of the apps in the KDE Additional Applications section, I believe that okular is the only one that will not run with kf5 (although I have a git version running in that environment). Looking at the CMakeLists.txt file in each of the apps in the 15.12.1 directory:

libkcddb is kde4 only

This one is only for k3b, and would be left for that.

Okular is kde4 only

The git version you have can be used, until it is properly released or needed to update for other reasons.

For KDE4 Core packages that match filenames in the 15.12.1 directory:

kdepimlibs is kde4 only

I see there is a new version in the link you gave at -dev:

http://download.kde.org/stable/applications/15.12.1/src/kdepimlibs-15.12.1.tar.xz

The question is: Which way do we go for the book?

I think it is OK
