I need someone (due to some problems in my development laptop) to test the new 
Xfce 4.4.2 packages before I commit them into the pkgsrc.

Do this and report if everything works...


# Remove all installed Xfce packages
pkg_delete -r \*xfce\*

# Fetch the new package sources
cd /tmp

# Update pkgsrc
cd /usr/pkgsrc
cvs update -dPA

# Remove current Xfce package sources and extract the new
rm -rf */*xfce4*
tar xzf /tmp/xfce.tgz

# Build and install xfce4
cd meta-pkgs/xfce4
make update

# Optionally build and install xfce4-extras
cd meta-pkgs/xfce4-extras
make update

# Finally restore the original Xfce packages
cd /usr/pkgsrc
rm -rf */*xfce4*
cvs update -dPA
