KDE 3.4beta2 Released!

Filed under

Whooohooo! KDE 3.4 Beta 2 was released on February 9th, 2005. Read the official announcement. Come on Gentoo, where's the ebuilds!

UPDATE: Looks like the ebuilds are available at this time.

Let us know

Let us know how it goes. I'd like to start working on some rpms for unstable some time next week if I can resolve some other issues with pclos.

okie dokey, will do. :) -

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: Let us know

Well, the packages built once I took kdeaccessibility and kdewebdevelop outta the ebuild and it looks great. I used gentoo's kde-meta method and I was thinking it'd get slow with all the extra stuff I don't use, but it's still lightening fast on my system. I had to mv my .kde directory cuz it was a tad unstable at first, but it's stable now that I moved that. There are new eye candies and features. I really like it. KDE just keeps getting better and better. The only trouble I've seen is getting arts to play the ogg system sound files, no prob with wavs. ymmv. I put a few preliminary screenshots in the gallery, but maybe I'll do a better album when I get home from my real job. Tongue Anyway, I give it the big thumbs up!

Moto 360 (2nd gen) review: The Android Wear watch to beat

If you’re looking for a smartwatch that delivers a “next-generation” experience, the 2nd generation Moto 360 isn’t it. In fact, none of the Android Wear watches really move the platform forward in a significant way—perhaps because Google is largely in the driver’s seat for software development. But if you want a smartwatch that delivers a great experience for everything Android Wear can do, this is the one. Numerous hardware refinements and a year of software development have made the new Moto 360 everything the first one should have been. Read more

ONOS project, Linux Foundation form strategic partnership

The ONOS community hopes to expedite the advantages service providers can get from software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) by collaborating with the Linux Foundation in a strategic partnership. The partnership will help ON.Lab/ONOS "transform service providers' infrastructure for increased monetization by achieving high capex and opex efficiencies and creating new innovative services using the power of open source SDN and NFV," according to a press release. The Linux Foundation will assist ONOS to "organize, grow and harness the power" of a global community to take ONOS and the solutions enabled by it to the next level of production and readiness.

Geriatric Linux: How an 'old geezer' came to terms with computers

Among the diverse things I found to read about was a relatively new but fast-growing computer operating system called Linux. It sounded fascinating: invented by a college student, developed by volunteers, used mainly by experts but available to amateurs; it appeared to defy not only the conventional business model, but the very concept of commercial software.
