    Default Is updating process different in various Linux OS, e.g. Suse and Ubuntu?

    I have OpenSuse 11.3 KDE installed in dual boot with Win 7.
    Have used Ubuntu in the past and remember that whenever I started my computer with Ubuntu, i had a black colored screen which showed various kernel options. So in short I was sure that the Ubuntu installation had updated itself.
    On the contrary, whenever I start Suse 11.3 KDE, it shows me just one option of Suse 2.6.34.7-0.7

    I have doubts, is Suse up-to-date, and also there is mention of KDE 4.6 on kde.org website. But my operating system information is as follows:
    KDE: 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 3"
    OS: Linux 2.6.34.7 -0.7 -default i686
    System: openSUSE 11.3 (i586)

    I have also seen that on 10th Mar 2011, Suse 11.4 will be realeased. Will update/ upgrade of this installation work in this direction?
    Thanks for coming here and clearing my doubts.

    By default openSUSE keeps only one kernel when it updates. You can change it to keep the old kernel by uncommenting this line in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf
    Code:
    # multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)
    Just remove the # in front of it.

    If you want KDE 4.6 on openSUSE 11.3 you will need to add the KDE 4.6 repo and switch packages to that repo in YaST.

    Of course updating process is different in all linux distros.
    Your operating system(opensuse) is not up to date you need as you said upgrade your KDE. I have created a guide, it is in greek, so you must translate it Αναβάθμιση Στο Τελευταίο KDE. Go to the second page of thread and go down, you will find the third guide who I wrote it is the fast way.

    And you must upgrade your kernel with this
    Code:
    multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)
    as ANDREW said.

    Andrew because I use the factory repository is better with that and not with release repository.

    I sent you a message about openfest. Have you get it ?

    I could not translate the page to English, but as you have mentioned in post #20 on page 2, the link took me to this page
    SDB:KDE upgrade - openSUSE
    Here also, there is mention of 4.5. Can I change the figure of "45" to "46"?

    It is my technique to upgrade your KDE

    Well first of all
    open a terminal and write
    Code:
     su
    add repository
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.3/ KDE46
    add the extra repository
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo -fhttp://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_46_openSUSE_11.3/ KDE46-Extra
    And upgrade
    Code:
    # zypper dup --from KDE46 --from KDE46-Extra
    If you use network manager

    Code:
    # zypper install plasmoid-networkmanagement
    Code:
    kquitapp knetworkmanager qdbus org.kde.kded /kded loadModule networkmanagement
    Close terminal and reboot your system.

    Warning all repositories possibly change

    You will check here SDB:KDE upgrade - openSUSE

    I wrote again ok???

    Always Friendly!!!!

    First add the 4.6 repos. I recommend adding the Core and Extra repos like this. First become root in Konsole by doing su -
    Then
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.3/ KDE46
    Then
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_46_openSUSE_11.3/ KDE46-Extra
    Then
    Code:
    zypper refresh
    a to accept keys for both KDE46 and KDE46-Extra repos.

    After that go to YaST -> Software Management. Then go View dropdown button -> Select Repositories -> Then select KDE46 in that list and click the switch system packages button. Then select the KDE46-Extra repo and click switch system packages button. Then click the Accept button. Then after that I would reboot and you should be on KDE 4.6.
