Updates in kde4.debian.net

It was complicated getting this done, but finally backports for 4.1.2 are available at kde4.debian.net. Thanks to the help of Aleix Pol and his Mac Mini, there are available packages for PowerPC now.

As well, I have uploaded a backport of Qt 4.4.3 (*), for AMD64, i386 and PowerPC. If you are using KDE 4.1.x, you definitively want to use this Qt 4 version with a bunch of bugfixes.

A lot of people mailed me in the last week asking about problems with the mirror, this was caused by kde4.debian.net being actually 2 mirrors in round robin and the secondary (and faster) one having some problems syncing.

(*) Yes, I know Qt 4.4.2 and 4.4.3 are equal just with copyright changes, but it was easier backport latest version from unstable, right? :)

    Hi, thanks for your effort.

    I actually have trouble with both of the mirrors (tried explicitly using each of them by adding it’s IP to /etc/hosts). Many packages are still available in their 4.1.0 versions.

    It would be nice if you could sign the packages :).

    Sorry, my problem was not your packages. I hadn’t noticed kdebase-runtime 4.1.0 is available in Lenny. Aptitude was trying to use that version and failed to resolve dependencies. I pinned 4.1.2 and KDE4 installs :).

    Thanks again.
