K.R.S.S. is actively being developed using KDE version 2.2 and QT version 2.3.0.
If both libraries are supported for your platform, then K.R.S.S. will work without any problems.
It is recommended that you have at least these versions installed, although later or previous versions may work.
An internet connection is required to actually receive the news. A proxied connection is now supported (see the Status page for more information).
The latest version of the RSS specification, 1.0, has undergone a name change. The abbreviation for version 0.9.* stands for RSS (Rich Site Summary), whereas in version 1.0, it has been changed to RDF (Rich Document Format) Site Summary. K.R.S.S. supports all known versions, which todate are versions 0.9, 0.9.1 and 1.0. Thus the actual version is transparent to you, the end user - all feeds act and are presented the same. You don't have to worry or care what version a feed is.
Download K.R.S.S. ...
K.R.S.S. can be downloaded from Sourceforge in one of two manners:
The krss-2.6.tar.gz file is 633KB (approx. download time would be 2 minutes for 56K connection).
The krss-2.6.i368.rpm file is the binary distribution, and is 394KB (approx. download time would be just over 1 minute for 56K connection).
Alternatively, K.R.S.S.' source code can be checked out of the CVS tree. Documentation on how to do so can be found here.
Tar File Installation Steps...
To install the K.R.S.S. krss-2.6.tar.gz file on your system:
This will create a directory called krss-[version you downloaded] - for example, krss-2.6.
Note: You can view all of the options available for configure with the following:
$ ./configure --help
That is all there is to it.
Redhat Package Manager File Installation Steps...
To install the K.R.S.S. krss-2.6.i368.rpm file on your system:
$ su -c "rpm -i krss-2.6.i368.rpm"
$ rpm -Uvh/-i krss-2.6.i368.rpm
And that is all there is to that installation. This is my first attempt a building an RPM file so if you have any comments or questions, please do not hesitate to email me.
I would be really interested in how K.R.S.S. works for you.
If you have any comments/questions/ideas for improvements, etc., I would like to hear from you. Please take the time to fill out the form on the Feedback page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks a lot.
