Quick status update on el6 kde builds hosted @ kde-redhat repos...
* I moved the kde-4.10.x stuff from kde-unstable to kde-testing, finally.
* Over the past couple of says, started working on kde-4.11.x builds,
should be showing up in kde-unstable real soon, as soon as I work my way
through the last batch of stuff that doesn't build cleanly:
we've prepared testing builds of kde-plasma-nm including libnm-qt and libmm-qt libraries in COPR repository . The testing version includes a new design and few bugfixes and it is almost ready for stable release, we are just polishing its design. If you want to try it, just add the COPR repository and run update of kde-plasma-nm together with libnm-qt and libmm-qt and you also need to update NetworkManager from updates-testing repository (currently there is NetworkManager-0.9.9.0-29.git20140131.fc20).
Positive or negative feedback is welcomed. Thanks.

I think you mean hal-storage-addon ? There's currently no dependency on
this, I only added
(oops, I'll fix that).
yum install hal-storage-addon
and restart the box. This should help.

That should be handled by hal on rhel6, does
exist on your box?
Does this do the same for you?
$ echo $SOLID_HAL_LEGACY
Is the hal service running?
$ service haldaemon status
hald (pid XXX) is running...
I'm using KDE 4.11 (4.11.2, if I remember correctly) build from
Fedora-KDE-SIG (thanks) for RHEL6. After a fresh installation, I am finding
that optical disks are not recognised by KDE.
When I insert a CD/DVD, it is not listed by Device Notifier (USB disks work
fine) and also not in 'Places' panel of Dolphin. There is no direct way of
accessing the disk from KDE.
I can manually mount the disk from a terminal without issues.
I tried the same in GNOME and it detects the disk automatically.
Any ideas on where the issue might be?
I clicked the "updates are available" button on my Fedora 20 system this
past w/e, and now the KDE is unstable (Kwin
reports unstable). It blanks the screen sometimes. Seems to be related
to use of Dolphin.
Any suggestions ? How can I tell the version of KDE on my system ? (Yum
-list |grep kde perhaps ?)
How can I return to the previous version ?
Is there a problem with Dolphin ? I have seen other wierd behavior with
it on this new setup.

(Sending from the correct address now)
in January me and other KDE SIG members created a Copr repository with KDE
Frameworks 5 early preview packages (more in the blog post here , I forgot
to send an email to this list, sorry :))
The Copr repository is available here , if you are interested in spec
files, they are on github .
Today the repo was updated to KDE Frameworks 5 Alpha 1 (a.k.a. 4.96.0). Most
important changes in the update:
* all frameworks are now installed to /usr instead of /opt/kf5
* attica-qt5 has been upgraded to Tier 1 framework Attica
* KWallet framework has been moved from Tier 2 to Tier 3
* Plasma-framework support package has been moved to Tier 3 framework Plasma
* kactivities-qt5 has been upgraded to Tier 3 framework KActivities
* KRunner libraries have been ripped out from Plasma and moved into Tier 3
(Note about KActivities: upstream does not plan on making KActivities
framework co-installable with KActivities from KDE 4. For this reason,
KActivities framework is split into kactivities-libs, and kactivities-runtime.
kactiviries-libs are KF5/Qt5-based libraries that don't conflict with
anything. kactivities-runtime contains the kactivitiesmanaged daemon, that
conflicts with current KDE 4 kactivities package. However the KF5 daemon is a
drop-in replacement for the one from KDE 4 and should work just fine, but KDE
5 apps should work with KDE 4 daemon as well. Just a heads up in case you run
into problems while upgrading).
Regarding KDE 5 preview, we moved the packages from /opt/kf5 to /opt/kde5
prefix. We are also having troubles building the packages in Copr (some
problem with documentation generation) and didn't have time to look into
properly fixing it yet, so this update will come later. We will slowly
continue adding more packages, as their respective upstreams start KF5
Finally, an obligatory note that all the software in this repository is still
considered unstable and not ready for day-to-day use. The main purpose of this
repository is to provide early access to Frameworks to developers interested
in porting their applications to KF5 and Plasma 2 and allow others to take a
sneak peek into what KDE 5 will look like.
