Latest update on this.
EPEL9 - Everything is in epel-next-testing. To do your update do
dnf --enablerepo=epel-next-testing update
Reminder, this is a complete KDE Plasma Desktop update to plasma 5.24.4,
kf5 5.93, qt5 5.15.3
EPEL8 - Some packages are rebuilt and available, but qt5-qtwebengine, and
everything that depends on it, has not been rebuilt.
This is due to a complex module bug in CentOS Stream 8 affecting the
epel8-next buildroot. It may, or may not, get fixed this week.
Thank you all for your patience.
Latest update (May 11)
EPEL9 on CentOS Stream 9 (epel9-next)
The complete KDE Plasma Desktop update is now in stable and on the mirrors.
There are two bugs found and the fixes are in testing.
- selinux and plasma-workspace.
-- This only affects a new install of KDE Plasma Desktop, it doesn't affect
updates. You will know when you hit this. Lot's of pop-up screens telling
you of this bug.
--- Give it some karma so we don't have to wait a week.
- kf5-kapidox does not install
Note: again, a reminder, RHEL 9.0 will have the slightly older KDE Plasma
Desktop. This *updated* KDE Plasma Desktop will not be available for RHEL
9.0 GA, it will be available for RHEL 9.1.
EPEL8 on CentOS Stream 8 (epel8-next)
We have rebuilt as many packages as we can. We still cannot build
qt5-qtwebengine, and thus any packages that depend on it.
-- The python27 module has been fixed, and you can now build packages that
require python2 on epel8-next.
-- qt5-qtwebengine builds fine on x86_64, but failed on aarch64
--- Any help would be appreciated.
--- We tried rebuilding the older qt5-qtwebengine, same errors.
--- We tried the older gcc, again, same errors.
--- Still working on it, but if you recognize the errors in the buildlog,
let us (me) know.
- sddm and kscreenlocker not working.
-- We have found that it is indeed a RHEL 8 kernel issue.
-- kernel issues take a while to make it through RHEL. So if anyone finds
any type of workarounds. Let us know.
--- sddm workaround
---- dnf install gdm ; systemctl enable gdm -f
--- kscreenlocker workaround - unknown
Again, thank you for your patience and words of encouragement.
