KDevelop and the openSUSE Build Service

June 4th, 2008 by

Building packages for multiple distros can be a major pain — which is why we provide the openSUSE Build Service. One of the Build Service’s many features is the ability to create packages for many distros — including openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, and Ubuntu. One of the projects making the most of the Build Service is KDevelop. We talked with KDevelop developer Amilcar do Carmo Lucas about how the KDevelop project is using the build service.
