Re: [SLE] KDE 3.3 is Out -- Taking the Plunge (?)

I exchanged some mails with Mike Fabian (mfabian on suse people) about the
issue.

The problem, from his words, is:

"I believe the problem is that freetype 2.1.9 is not completely binary
compatible to 2.1.7. As far as I know, it is binary compatible as far
as the public API is concerned, but unfortunately some applications
used internal freetype functions which have been changed. I.e. that is
most likely a bug in the KDE fontinstaller, it shouldn't have used
private freetype functions.

As the above problem doesn't occur on the current development version
of SuSE where all the KDE libraries are compiled against freetype
2.1.9, I think it is likely that the problem would go away on SuSE 9.1
if the programs causing problems were recompiled against freetype
2.1.9.  Unfortunately this isn't easy for you and I also cannot easily
supply updated versions of all KDE libraries."

You can revert to the old freetype libraries.

Bye
