Re: Contribution help

Well I started build process using command ./kdesrc-build --debug powerdevil . It looks like make install fails [1]. The log output is not detailed enough about what causes the fail. What is the way to increase log verbosity? I configured kdebuild-src to use ~/kde/usr as install directory [2]. I also don't know what packages to build. Entire frameworks or just some part of it? Are packages provided (Qt, KF5) by my distro (Arch) okay? If so, which ones are okay which ones are not?
