SUSE

KDE SC 4.4 Beta 1 has been released, and of course I couldn’t stay still. Thanks to the friendly openSUSE Build Service, there were packages available, so I just pointed my zypper sources to KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop repository, adjusted a few other things (mainly other third-party repositories) and updated.

It was a mostly painless process, mostly because I was too fast, and the mirrors hadn’t synced yet, so I ended up with 4.3.77 packages instead of 4.3.80 (Beta 1). I just avoided to log into X and waited till the right packages were available, then I updated again. I updated system-wide (yes, I can be that crazy) and I started using the beta (and its subsequent snapshots) full time. In part it’s because I’m a feature addict, in part because I wanted to write some promo material (I’m really sorry Jos, I didn’t find the time to do it yet!) to make things easier prior to release.

So, how’s the SC faring, so far?
