You’re going to think that I’m some kind of web shortcut maniac, but I really think I’m not.
I’m using http://packages.larrythecow.org a lot, and only today did I think about creating a konqueror web shortcut to get there faster. I’ve called it ‘gt’ (for gentoo, yes, i’m that lazy), and the magic url thinguy is
Now I can type “gt:kdebase-meta” in konquy or alt-f2 and feel ashamed in front of my debian friends whom I’ve been laughing at so much in the past because debian is slow to catch up with kde releases.
Today, several weeks after KDE 4.1 has been released, and 10 days after KDE 4.1.1 has been released, there is still no official ebuilds for the kde 4.1 branch. I know there are overlays, there are some heated bug-reports, blogs and even some unofficial status page about it, but still, kde 4.1 is not in gentoo, and it makes me feel really sad.
Yes, I know, it’s free software and I can do it myself. And then?
