AFFECTS: users of textproc/expat2
AUTHOR: marcus at FreeBSD.org
Users of expat2 (and its many dependencies) should do the following to
properly update expat2 and all of its dependencies:
portupgrade -rf textproc/expat2
I did the mentioned portupgrade above and a *lot* of packages were
reinstalled, among those KDE. I'm not sure in retrospect that I needed
to do this as I only installed FreeBSD on this box a couple of months
ago. Anyway, since the upgrade Konqueror crashes when started in a
directory (core dumps) as a file browser, KDE notifications no longer
work (although sound from Gnome apps *do* work -> I have
gnome-session-daemon start when I log into KDE) and k3b won't start any
longer for starters.
What would be the best way to try an rectify this? Reinstall kde from
scratch with a 'portupgrade -rf /usr/ports/X11/kde3' or something else
All the aforementioned apps were working prior to the portupgrade
command mentioned in UPDATING.
