Space crunch for KDE4.0.x build

While the mentors might be pondering over my simply simple application for GSoC, I am making efforts to build the development environment.

KDE’s Techbase has a very well written documentation; thanks to everyone who contributed, it made my life a little easy. 🙂
The build was smooth until I compiled qt-copy. It failed due to insufficient disk space on my /home. This was obvious, since I had /home of 3GB only.
I use a very peculiar partitioning scheme. On an 80GB IDE Harddisk, I make 11 partitions, having /boot, /, swap, /usr, /var, /opt, /home, /code, /data, /musik, /vm-os.
While, reinstalling my distro with a huge /home would have been the sane thing, I decided to drop my /musik and /vm-os and created a /home of 15GB. I knew I have to build this again, but then continuing at this point would give me more experience.

So, by saturday night I was done with the kdebase build and was using KDE4 applications on KDE3.5.8 Desktop. At this point, my free space on /home was 6.1GB; I had option to delete my *.o files to free up space, which I didn’t exercise.

At #kdegames (, jpwhiting and milliams pointed me to kollision, it was fun and I was scoring points until I started understanding how to play. 😛
I fell asleep on my keyboard that night (happens many times); next day’s fun on next post. 😉
