kde-4.0.1 on Slackware

I just pushed some updates to the kde4 packages for Slackware -current; now we have kde-4.0.1 packs.

The download location has moved though - I decided to take advantage of some previously unused bandwidth and space on my 1and1.com shared hosting account.

Get them at http://kde4.rlworkman.net/.

fyi, there was a problem with wicd when it comes to using dhclient, for by default dhcpcd updates resolv.conf.

I had this issue with slackware, and the reason dhclient doesnt modify the resolv.conf is because dhcpcd is set up by default to deal with it, not dhclient, as I quickly found out. i probably could of set up a dhclient-script to take control, but that would be screwing with the whole slackware network setup, so I took a look at the networking.py and added dhcpcd to the list of programs that wicd checks for.


All I did was i replaced "dhclient" with "dhcpcd" in the run and kill commands and replaced dhclient's command "ip route flush dev" with dhcpcd's "route del dev" for the wired and wireless setup....I might submit a patch to them so they can fix this issue when it comes to distros with dhcpcd; it simply needs to know if its going to go the dhclient route or the dhcpcd route, and use the correct commands.

it solved the issue, and resolv.conf now updates, and it doesnt lag when it comes to catching those needed discover packets. perhaps replace the networking.py in the pkg - or add a few sed commands in the SlackBuild? if you wanna email me it's nawcom@nawcom.com
