I know that I am not subscribed to this list, but getting on here seems to be
a somewhat difficult task and I promise that my email won't be a spam one :)
My issue is the following:
As far as I know, FreeBSD has completely dropped support for KDE 3.5.
Whether it's the ports, or the pkg_add precompiled binaries. Am I right in
I am currently running a live version of FreeBSD 8.2 with KDE 4.8. The thing
here is that KDE 4 is simply too heavy for my system. For example: it is
impossible for me to have two open shells at the same time. Once I exit a
given shell, I can't open another one due to a lack of resources, even after having
turned off all the extra stuff - plasma desktop, nepomuk...
As a consequence, I can see myself do two possible things, to have a system
running with KDE 3.5 once again:
1. go back to an older release of FreeBSD and install KDE 3.5 from the
precompiled binaries that are on the DVD donwload version.
Judging by the release announcements, this should be 7.1.
This is something that I don't really feel like doing.
2. To be honest, I am quite happy with 8.2 and I would like to keep it for
some time to come. In other words, is there a way to keep 8.2 and still
have KDE 3.5 along with it? For example has anyone ever tried to
install a 7.1 pre-built package (KDE 3.5 in this case) on an 8.2 system?
Is that possible?
Any other solutions?
