kdevelop requires kdesdk version 3 for this, which isn't present in F9 (kdesdk
version 4 is).
Comment 2 The Source 2008-05-16 07:50:38 EDT
Will kdevelop 4 support CVS with kdesdk 4?
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-05-16 08:15:48 EDT
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-05-16 08:16:39 EDT
we can keep this open as a feature request, could be possible to include the
parts of kdesdk3 to make things work here.
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-16 18:18:43 EDT
The problem is that it's not just a KDE 3 library, it depends on a KDE 3 
service (cvsservice) too. The apps talk to that service through DCOP. I'm not 
sure that service, if we installed it, would get started properly in KDE 4. 
(Does this feature work in a non-KDE desktop? If not, it probably won't work in 
KDE 4 either.)
Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-16 18:22:48 EDT
Actually, the KDE 4 cvsservice exports a D-Bus interface almost identical to 
the KDE 3 DCOP interface, it might be possible to hack KDevelop to use that 
D-Bus interface through qt3-dbus.
Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-16 18:31:59 EDT
Actually, the KDE 3 service is started by this:
>    if (KApplication::startServiceByDesktopName("cvsservice",
>        QStringList(), &error, &appId))
so I guess it would work with the KDE 3 one.

And patching things to the KDE 4 one sounds like a lot of work, the KDevelop 
cvsservice integration is almost 500 KB of code. :-(
Comment 8 Steven M. Parrish 2008-06-23 17:03:05 EDT
Based on the above comments should this be closed as WONTFIX?
Comment 9 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-23 17:32:10 EDT
Well, in principle we could package a kdesdk3 or cvsservice3...
