Contents 1 Dependencies 2 Showstoppers 2.1 Konsole 2.2 KMail Dependencies If the system locale is C, then every Qt application will spit out an iconv warning on startup; this is annoying but harmless. Setting LANG to something else (e.g. LANG=646, even) will help. Long term solution: add encoding or system workaround. Showstoppers The intention of this showstopper list is to provide more detail and context for what we consider showstoppers for getting KDE4 on Solaris shipped. It doesn't correspond to the Release Team's list, at least not until we get a lot more Solaris mindshare. Each showstopper should have a name, a KDE Bugzilla entry and a long(er) description. Konsole no bugs.kde.org entry yet In a konsole tab, you can break the link between the shell / session / tab output and konsole itself, so that nothing gets printed anymore. To reproduce this problem, you need to either hit ^C at an inopportune time (there's plenty of that) or produce an unusual output pattern. Here's a long-winded way of looking at the ^C issue: start konsole start a new tab for convenience check that the shell is working, for instance by running ls tail -f /var/log/messages hit ^C; notice that tail is interrupted and the shell returns ls again, to see the shell still works at the shell prompt itself, hit ^C; you would expect a new shell prompt to be printed, but it is not type "date > /tmp/foo ; exit" and it enter (without the quotes) notice that /tmp/foo now exists with the right time and that the shell / session / tab closes Here is a way of breaking the link without ^C but by producing a not-very-special output pattern. You need to have the C compiler installed: start konsole start a new tab for convenience cd /tmp/usr/ucb/echo -n "#include <math.h>" > t.c cc t.c notice how the shell prompt does not come back after the warnings printed by the C compiler type exit to close the shell / session / tab You cannot keep typing indefinitely in a session that is not reading output; it seems like eventually the output from the shell hangs as well. Also, you can hang konsole completely by doing this. KMail no bugs.kde.org entry yet If you start KMail from KRunner (alt-f2) then it crashes the first time it needs to call up the KWallet confirm dialog; if you run it from konsole it does not crash.
