Some work on sddm

Sddm in cauldron is now updated to the last release ( 0.0.9 ) and it is now working. Some work have been done for in the pam config file.

If you want to test it in mageia you will need to do :

systemctl disable prefdm.service && systemctl enable sddm.service

On next reboot it will not use prefdm anymore but sddm will start.

If you notice any probleme, please report your bug into Mageia Bugzilla.

Some news about KF5

Things moved recently about kf5 in mageia. We had, since a long time, the framework part.

Now that the first stable release is out we packaged the desktop/workspace  release based on KF5.

Unfortunalty this can’t be co-installed in parallel of KDE4. For the moment ( not yet clean packages ) you have to follow those steps:

1- Remove  kdebase4-workspace ( this will remove a bunch of packages workspace dependant ( plasma applets, etc).
2- install plasma-desktop and plasma-workspace

3 restart your session and in your favorite DM go in KF5.

Keep in mind that those are experimental packages.
