Default issue kde4

Hi,
I've installed NetBSD 7.0_rc3 on bi quad cores opteron, the system running, but after pkgin in kde4, some files missing : dbus, hal, kdm.
I think that there are do a full installation because i've issue while installation. 3 or 4 files miss !
My PKG_PATH="http://www.tastylime.net/netbsd/packages...

How can i do a full installation ?

Regards
Philippe

Wink change your PKG_PATH

Hello Philippe,

why don't you use the official path for the installation of your packages?

I would recommend:

export PKG_PATH=http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/amd64/7.0_RC3/All/

pkg_add -v pkgin

echo $PKG_PATH > /usr/pkg/etc/pkgin/repositories.conf

pkgin update


And then try it again:

pkgin install kde


Good luck, blackcat

pkgfind -P kdm

It seems kdm is in kde-baseapps4 package, but in tastylime.net package repository it doesn't appear. So I am afraid that you will have to build from pkgsrc yourself

Bonjour Philippe,

you are quite right. I also couldn't find kdm in the repository.

I have only found with:

pkgin search "display manager"

xdm and gdm.

Maybe xdm as a general display manager for Xorg is an alternative for
you.

Or is it possible to start the kde desktop environment directly from
your console with:

startx /usr/pkg/bin/kde4

(startx /path/to/your/kde-metapackage)


Sorry that i can't give you a better advice, i seldom use any desktop
environment.

I prefer lightweight window managers like fluxbox , mcwm , lwm or dwm.

Au revoir, blackcat

Last but not least

Hey Philippe, update your pkgsrc to 2015Q3!

cd /usr/pkgsrc

cvs update -dP


Then compile kde4 from source code:

cd /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/kde4


sudo make install clean clean-depends

sudo make distclean


And now you have kde4 probably with (like pygope said) kdm.
