I'm on holidays until June 21st in the sunny and wonderful Dalmatia (Croatia), near Trogir. No internet, no computers, and hence no package updates until I'm back ;) For really urgent things, contact the Packman team.

I've built new smart packages, but I would dub them as experimental, because I've added a patch for improved package candidate selection for x86_64 Because of that, I've put those smart RPMs in a different repository, to avoid forcing it down on everyone who's using my main repository ;) If you'd like to give it a try (and I'd certainly be thankful for testing it), especially if you're on x86_64, do as follows (where xx.x corresponds to your SUSE version, one of 10.1, 10.0, 9.3, 9.2 or 9.1):
smart channel --add http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/suser-guru/smart/smart-experimental-suse-xx.x.channel smart update smart-experimental smart upgrade 'smart*'Please let me know whether it works fine for you or not, feedback is highly appreciated :) For more information about that experimental patch, have a look at issue 177 in the smart tracker. Note: post-edited the entry, changed the repository layout and added .channel files; if you can't find the .channel files just yet, please wait a few more hours for the server to sync
» AFK until thursday
I'll be away from my computer until Thursday evening so... don't panic, I'm not dead (well, I hope I won't ;)) and I'll catch up new package releases when I'm back.

The "supplementary KDE" repository has been moved to the openSUSE Build Service (read the announcement here), which has a number of consequences if you have been using it to get the latest KDE release on your desktop:
- if using SUSE Linux 10.1 or 10.0, you must change the repository URL to:
- if using SUSE Linux 9.3, you must change the repository URL as well, but as it only holds a RPM-MD repository, you will also have to use e.g. smart instead of YaST2, because the latter only supports RPM-MD repositories since SUSE Linux 10.0:
- if you're using 9.2, tough luck, the Build Service doesn't have a SUSE Linux 9.2 build target (at least as of now, but it's unlikely to be provided at some point)
- if you're using 9.1, you'd better upgrade anyway, as 9.1 is out of support now ;)
