    LLVM upgrades are a pain to do everywhere, I think - too many things depending on it.
  2. Still is in upstream KDE I think, the KDE...

    Still is in upstream KDE I think, the KDE developers were too busy arguing over the most elegant solution to actually fix it. (OpenSUSE have their own fix for it which makes it impossible to...

    They may run as seperate processes, but they're tightly coupled - the only one that can currently run independently is udev, and it's not clear how long that will last. (After all, having udevd...

    So if I'm following this correctly, it's basically like the situation we have right now with input on X - the original protocol has been essentially obsoleted by a new one, but all compositors that...

    Nope, I've been seeing it since 4.10.0 (that's the better part of a year!). I was under the impression that the entire 4.x series was the stable releases of KDE - they certainly seem to treat it that...

    No, my complaint comes down to this: part-way through the supposedly stable and mature KDE 4.x series, they introduced a bug in Plasma Desktop that it made it practically unusable for me because it...

    The early QML migration broke Plasma badly enough that I seriously considered switching away from KDE to something actually usable. Having the entire Plasma desktop crash and restart (or worse, not...

    Unless they've changed it, in the KDE 4 series locking the screen is handled by ksmserver with minor optional assistance from KWin's compositor - this is secure enough under X since it aggressively...

    Are you planning to let users change the lock-screen background, or at least use their normal desktop background for it? The non-XScreensaver screen locker in 4.11 uses a background image that's...

    I invested the (thankfully relatively minimal) time required to get a clean backtrace and discovered that quite a number of people had already reported the same crash across multiple distros and KDE...

    Which again requires a bunch of functionality to be duplicated between the session and system compositors.


    That's not actually sufficient for several reasons. Firstly, EGL doesn't support...

    Thankfully, Wayland has allowed them to apply the Cascade of Attention-Deficit Teenagers development methodology to KDE development - rather than fixing bugs, they can just say it's probably X's...

    Having the compositor be the display server was one of the main original selling points, but in practice they ran into fundamental problems - on multi-user systems everyone would have to use the same...

    After upgrading to 4.11, plasma-desktop is still segfaulting several times an hour for me. It looks like I'm suffering from an 8 month old bug that hasn't even been fully diagnosed despite being...

    Oh yes. I just discovered that Pulseaudio 4.0 includes a patch to the resampling code that is literally incomplete and caused crackling and all sorts of other problems. (Obviously incomplete, even!)...

    I'm pretty sure that's not true of widget theming, which pretty much every desktop environment seems to do - in fact, supposedly even within 3.x new versions often break themes developed for older...

    That's not exactly surprising - there's very little to Wayland, nearly all of the functionality is provided by third party projects and libraries.


    Good luck with that. PulseAudio is at what,...

    I think the kernel actually rejects the command submission when it finds there's not enough memory and then rendering glitches as a result. Could be wrong though.
