Fragment of a discussion from Talk:Guidelines and HOWTOs/Build from source I am not sure why specifically kdevplatform should be added to the kdesrc-build argument. Please ask this question on [email protected] It has a much higher visibility than this wiki communication channel. Parent MoreHistory View source Link togregormi (talk) 14:50, 6 September 2016 My mistake...I meant to say kdevelop as this was what the instructions were trying to build. However, the recent edits have covered this point. I'll move over to [email protected] or irc if there's still more needed to be discussed.
