There has been versions that don’t coexist well. Is it possible to install plasma on a system with KDE4 in place?
I just read the FreeBSD KDE Ports and I’m thrilled to have it on BSD but I’ve not seen a discussion where I can glean the answer. It does say “…can be installed separately.” Which could be read to mean both ways. I’m guessing it means both will be installed separately, but not wanting to crash because of some semantics I figured I’d ask. (Of course snapshot and BE are helpful here.)
Decided to snapshot and install. Ran into the next hurdle, a clear description of sequence to install KDE5/Plasma. OK, thinking dependencies will get me through but kwayland is an alert as I’m on x11. No idea but it sounds fatal to me.
OK, maybe I should install on a separate drive and see how it goes so I can easily rebuild.
KDE Community Wiki for FreeBSD has an error on it, actually two. It say to run ‘pkg install x11/kde5’ and another error like that. Which is a futile thing to do with the slash there. Could be someone one more familiar know how to get around it but I certainly crashed here.
Attempted install show an error wanting v5.49 (I’m on unstable) but it only shows 5.43 packages, so I may need to downgrade to stable. Can I just rely on the pkg manager to handle that or should I simply re-install…?
It being late and quiet so I’ll just try on a new drive, unless I find I can down grade to stable, reliably.
