Meeting Time



  • topics to discuss:
    • kde-4.5 rc3 status
    • Sebastian Trueg recommends to set /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches to very high value for Nepomuk
    • Solid DeviceKit backend
  • recent bugs:



kde-4.5 rc3 status

  • kdegames trademark issues
    • can we omit affected games (and move to RPM Fusion?)
      • not easy to maintain -trademark patch
      • games, handbook, translations tied to it...
    • ACTION: jreznik to contact kde legal and kdegames maintainers about trademark issues
    • ACTION: than to provide list of affected files
  • otherwise kde-4.5 rc3 is built and already in kde-unstable repo

set /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches to very high value for Nepomuk

  • Sebastian Trueg recommends it on kde-packagers mailing list
  • we're not sure what does it mean for us
    • what's happen when limit is reached?
    • what about memory consumption when higher number is set?
      • ACTION: jreznik to ask Sebastian
  • mjg59 says it's probably justifiable to increase it and he thinks increasing the value increases memory usage in itself, but it does increase the amount of kernel resources a user can allocate
  • ACTION: rdieter to contact fedora devel/kernel folks about raising /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches

Solid DeviceKit backend

  • ltinkl is working on dk backend, targetting Fedora 15 and KDE 4.6

open discussion

  • rdieter would like to throw out a tease that there's a good chance we'll be bringing a good qt/kde presence to fudcon zurich , pending some financial/logistical details
