For a while, now, I have been making nightly package of KOffice for OpenSuSE (10.3, 10.4, 11.0) using the OpenSuSE build service. I haven’t make a more public announcement until now, since I am using Debian myself I couldn’t test them. But Simon Schmeisser (of the flake marble shape fame) told me that he used the package with success for developing is flake shape, so I will assume that the package work.
Here are link to repository for the various OpenSuSE version for which there is currently a built:
- OpenSuSE 10.3 repository
- OpenSuSE 10.2 repository (you will probably need to explicitelly add the KDE4 repository)
- OpenSuSE 10.3 repository (you will probably need to explicitelly add the KDE4 repository)
- OpenSuSE 10.3 with the marble shape linking against KDE4.1 (you will probably need to explicitelly add the KDE4 repository)
Nightly packages for other distributions might also arrive in the future, debian is first in line. Having a debian package will make it easier to have a klick package, since it didn’t work out with klick and my OpenSuSE rpm packages, the draw back is that on the build service, only the stable version of debian is available, which doesn’t have kdelibs 4.0. For me, klick would be the ideal solution to reach testers, without intrusion on their system.
