There are currently some classes in Okteta used for rendering which are named the same (*ColumnRenderer), one of each pair living in a namespace (KHEUI), the other in the standard one. Product of lazyness and temporary solutions (printing needs a renderer, the one for the screen is not yet usable, so until it is, let’s just copy,paste&adapt it).
Without any dutchman:
It worked for me, as the code depending on the renderer never sees both of them.
Here comes dutchman #1:
Unless you compile KDE with enable-final turned on, which puts all source files into a single big one. I never have done, but dutchman #1: So Tom Albers sent in a patch to fix this. E.g. it added the prefixed double-colons to remove ambiguity. With lazyness still turned on, I just had him apply the patch as is, because while not too happy with the look I know^Whope the time of the doubled classes is limited (KDE 4.2). Also my knowledge regarding namespace stuff is, well, improveable currently.
Now dutchman #2 comes in:
On his quest to have the traditional targets of KDE, namely unixoid platforms, not being left aside due to some hyped new targets like OSX or Windows, dutchman #2 puts the KDE code on the plate of quite some more compilers, some I have even never heard of. And a few of them seem to have a different taste about what to swallow and what not, compared to all the compilers that have had it one their plate before. Especially regarding one of the solutions of the other dutchman, namely the prefixed double-colons. So Adriaan de Groot, with his brain’s parser broken so he can not detect the maintainer’s email address or his bookmark to bugs.kde.org, stays with his opened blog editor window and throws his findings into the sea of the world wide web, hoping one of the bottle copies will find the person addressed. Lucky he is, it did 😉
So lazyness is no more, will just rename half of the classes and hopefully have all the compilers now eat all from the plate. So the weather will be nice (central europe mothers tell you this relation). Because I fear dutchmans are more used to play soccer in rain, so they will have a little more advantage against the germans in the final of the EM (European championship about dealing with a single ball and two nets the European style). I do not want to be guilty of that, because I want the german team to have a little chance against them. If only for a goal of honor. As to be seen yesterday, they at least have chances to improve, too. A lot of chances… Or they will have to catch a lot with dutchmans, too.
