As the topic said, the Qt 5.7.1 transision has started and the first packages will hit sid soon - so please be carefull.

It will take slightly more packages with it in a KDE installation:

5. November is only the start of the transition freeze, soft freeze (no new packages, no re-entry, 10-day migrations) starts on 5. Jan. and full freeze on 5. Feb. 2017.

Additional - planned and acked ongoing transitions are allowed after 2016/11/05 - so this date don't mean: "Fine, i can hit <Enter> without thinking until freeze is over" - transition freeze means only that there will be no new packages that introduce abi or api changes. Also normal dependencies can and will break things

This evening d-u succeeded without any package removals!
But: Login by sddm not possible, login mask disappeared, KDE Plasma not usable

Yes, no packages to remove does not mean there is no breakage.
So the warning is still up!

  • sid, fly high!
"He's dead, Jim!"

okay, that's what test machines can do for us:
At least after a "dpkg-reconfigure plasma-desktop" I got to the point that the splash screen freezes.
only yakuake still works, but I couldn't start any other graphical apps.

  • we are the priests ... of the temples of syrinx
Everything works ...  but, no taskbar, quicklaunch

conky and wbar on the desktop, I pretty much open everything with wbar, (konq, dolphin, firefox, thunderbird, mythtv, amarok, systemsettings) no problems with yakuake



EDIT: I also have no problems with sddm

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

The problem is that a lot of qt5-packages are already on v. 5.7.1-206110-21-n (where n is 2, 4 or 5). But not all qt5-packages are on that version yet. Specialy the qml-related ones are not. You can check with
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep qt5 A solution would be to downgrade all packages with  5.7.1-206110-21-n (where n is 2, 4 or 5) to testing or just wait it out (which could be a few days).

Missed the warnings after being away for a week so, yesterday, ended up with a box that froze on desktop start up.

d-u today seems to have solved the problem for me

Same here. Missed the warning but with today dist-upgrade everything seems to be ok again.
