I have built the SVN 4.4 BRANCH from source, but I haven't done much
more than start it since I have been having problems getting enough
information to update my build tutorial:
I also found enough information here and there to start a tutorial on
how to configure D-Bus:
I didn't understand the lack of information on building KDE, but then I
found a very (something) FAQ:
This is not a good situation. It shouldn't be necessary to determine
things by trial and error.
IAC, I will have to look at KDE-4.4. I will judge it by whether or not
there are still a lot of little things which are, missing, not quite
correct, or broken. I am not really interested in the new geeeee whiz
features that they have probably added.
