Gentoo GUI etc-update

I really dislike etc-update in the console so here is a GUI version. It uses Kompare from kdesdk for the visual diff. You could easily make it kdiff3 if you like, but I thought more people would have Kompare.

This allows you to test it in user mode, but obviously no files are written. Run it with kdesu as the test mode dialog indicates. Use at your own risk. I have used it for the 2006.1 upgrade and an emerge world and it seems to work perfectly, but if you do find a problem let me know right away.


Version 0.4 - Added the ability to take a directory at once and accept the new files unless they had been deferred. There is also extensive Whatsthis (?) help on the execute buttons. I did these changes because recent updates were through up over 100 pointless flagged files.

Version 0.3 - Fixed an irritating bug causing directories with periods to launch Kompare and then do odd things with tracking.

Version 0.2 - Fixed bug with counts on tree refresh and enabled doubleclick editing of old and new saved files.

Some time back we were given the archives for KPortage, which I really liked. Turns out it was mostly written in Python, which Michal and I were not fluent in. We would have preferred C++ but we wanted to build it in Kommander. It just wasn't ready. Now it is.

I tried Kuroo when it came out and it tried to emerge x86 ebuilds on my amd64 system. That really upset me as a sign of poor design. What's more I can't easily look at the code like I can with Kommander.

We will be building a suite of tools in Kommander. The cool thing is any user can contribute because it's that easy to edit and build... and hopefully we won't be hosing people's systems.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
