Is it possible to upgrade from Mint 8 KDE at this point?

I can not wait to see the release that Boo and Kmint team release...hope my optical drive works in 10.04; along with everything else. The suspense is killing me, also, Linux Mint has surpassed fedora on distrowatch for site hits. I wonder how the rankings will be in 2 days when fedora 13 comes out, hopefully our KDE release will pull em back.

Frankly, I doubt it, but that's not the point. Fedora is good but Mint targets a completely different market sector.

Ya know, each distro has a function for everyone and there are lots of people in the Linux community that have multipal favorites, whether business use or home. I myself am not impervious to having a favorite, which right now just happens to be Mint KDE....it loads quick, and shuts down quick, unlike Windows. It doesn't suck up a lot of resources and cpu temp is low. Though LM9 KDE Isadora isn't out yet, I congradulate Boo and the dev team for a job well done and lot of hard work and I presume, a little head ache along the way...hats off and salutes to you Boo....

Well in addition to worrying about my optical drive, I also am going to have to remove amarok because it still cannot work with music libraries larger than 12gigs... I am hoping Boo replaces it with a better, more mature media player such as Banshee or Rhythmbox

Never heard that one before. My music collection regularly exceeds 12GB and Amarok has no issues reading them.

Yeah, there are a ton of bug reports for it. (it being amarok).

Thanks boo the for the frequent updates, I am really looking forward to the new version of KDE. Keep up the awesome work...

I am kinda wondering where the main edition will go with the release of gnome shell...It's good thing we get to see ubuntu's release of it first.

I agree with biker
My collection is nearly 120gb but never had any problems with amarok regarding the size of my collection

my collection was added from a 1TB NTFS drive, would that (being ntfs) be the probem? It works when I use smaller amounts of music though.

My music collection is nearly 30 gb and it runs fine in Amarok and is on external NTFS drive.

I am eager for KDE 9 as well, but patient for Boo to get it done when its ready.

You can always ask the folks over at Amarok's IRC page:

Code: Select all

irc://irc.freenode.net/#amarok
Or you could try the KDE Forums.

I have a 1TB external drive and have never had any issue with Amarok loading a library. Let us know if you get it installed. In the meantime, you could try Bangarang, which is a native KDE player as well. It wouldn't make any sense to include Banshee or Rythmbox, as those would involve bringing over a lot of Gnome dependencies.
They'll all look at me and say,

can someone explain to me how irc works then, because every time I try to connect using something like quassel, well it fails, any links to a guide on how to get use it?

Once again, There is a bug report on it though, and many others have had the problem. Once I get another email about it I will show it to you guys.

Do you not think that a lower quality beta could be released? Surely more people testing it would result in a more stable finished product?

There is already a lower quality beta it is called Kubuntu :lol:

Come on guys give boo some slack. He has got a work load due to kubuntu and lets be fair kde bugs. I am thinking akonadi here.

I am very close to dropping kde for awhile as the quality is not great at the moment. Am hoping boo can work his magic and tame the beast kde 4.4.3

I would rather it take another month or so if it means we get a quality distro like mint gnome.

I do not think the RC will take a month, I hope by the end of the week.
All releases need to pass testing and Clem's approval.
