rekonq 0.0.4 rpm (packaging continues)

I bumped into a neat little browser for KDE called “rekonq”. It’s a browser designed for WebKit and KDE and it’s light weight, all big pluses for me. I like fast little browsers which just do what they are supposed to do (browse the web as fast as possible) like midori and Arora. Although I very much like the fact that rekonq is designed to be KDE specific which Midori and Arora are not. I think it has the potential to become a serious thread for those two. Here are two screenshots of the browser:

Main Browser Window:

Browser Configuration:

Installation is quite simple, you download the package from the author’s (adjam) website ( and follow the rules in the INSTALL file. To improve my packaging skills I decided to wrap it up in a shiney RPM which I will share below. I tested it on Fedora 10 with Qt 4.5 and it seemed to work fine.

A download link can be found here: rekonq 0.0.4 (rpm, srpm and debuginfo).

Suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated. 🙂

PS. I recently finished the procedure to become a Fedora Contributor (Package Maintainer). I think this will be a nice project to get started with. I’ll keep you updated on this one.

    I’m really glad about yout article. In these days I’m moving code into KDE’s svn. And after another bugfix release we’ll go ahead our goals: fastness, KDE integration and bug polishing!
    Thank you very much for your article and your packages!
