Is that the version that is linked from our website, downloadable from
the suse buildservice?

Then they disabled svn support. IIRC the rpm's provided on our website
for SuSE have disabled svn support due to some build problems for that.

Thats not possible unfortunately, however that dialog will only appear
once, and if you don't select any items then it will remember that (the
files and directories will be blacklisted). The searching is done every
time a project is opened (IIRC) and that indeed takes a bit,
unfortunately its not possible to move the search into a separate

Right, if kdevelop crashes it can't save the project file with the
blacklist. I'm not sure when these rpm's were built but there were some
instabilities in the C++ parser lately. Those have been fixed a week
ago, so maybe you want to try compiling the svn version (if our
anonymous svn server is fully available again)

The first one yes. The second one, no and I can't change that before the
3.4.1 release because it would add a new string and we are in message
freeze. I'll think about providing an option to turn off the
recursive-find-on-project-open after the KDE 3.5.7/KDevelop3.4.1
