KDE 4.6.2 on Solaris 11

KDE 4.6.2 is here and now you can have it on your Solaris/OpenIndiana box as well. 
Apart from the upstream fixes we refreshed boost to v. 1.46.1, phonon to 4.5.0 and Qt to 4.7.2.
More patches got upstreamed, especially on the Webkit front, thanks to Ben. Ben is also working hard on Solaris 10 support.

Since we lost the build machine, publishing the binary packages may lag a bit, so if you want to give KDE a try, create a fresh zone and follow the effortless guide to build them. It takes about half a day on a mid-range laptop and it's almost fully automated so it's nothing to be scared of.

Czech University of Life Sciences Prague

I just learned that couple of years ago my alma mater changed its english name from 'The Czech University of Agriculture Prague' to 'Czech University of Life Sciences Prague'.

I guess it sounds much cooler on the CVs and particularly the graduates of the IT or Economical Faculty must've really appreciated that :-)

Personally I find it ridiculous as they kept the Czech name intact ...

Excuse me for now, I'll update my Linked-in profile ...

multi kulti

An interesting blend of chinese and czech culture as seen in a chinese restaurant:

 P.S.: I know KDE 4.6.2 is out but unfortunately the build machine is gone and so far I wasn't able to make a sane build environment on my laptop. Be patient please.
