    Default Tumbleweed KDE

    Hello,

    so I switched from 12.2 with KDE 4.9 repos to Tumbleweed.
    Code:
    # | Alias               | Name                               | Aktiviert | Aktualisieren | Typ   --+---------------------+------------------------------------+-----------+---------------+-------
    1 | ATI_Tumbleweed      | ATI Tumbleweed                     | Ja        | Ja            | rpm-md
    2 | KDE_Tumbleweed      | KDE Tumbleweed                     | Ja        | Ja            | rpm-md
    3 | Packman_Tumbleweed  | Packman Tumbleweed                 | Ja        | Ja            | rpm-md
    4 | openSUSE_Tumbleweed | openSUSE Tumbleweed                | Ja        | Ja            | rpm-md
    5 | repo-non-oss        | openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Non-Oss        | Ja        | Ja            | yast2 
    6 | repo-oss            | openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Oss            | Ja        | Ja            | yast2 
    7 | repo-update         | openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Updates        | Ja        | Ja            | rpm-md
    8 | repo-update-non-oss | openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Update-Non-Oss | Ja        | Ja            | rpm-md
    Now after zypper dup my KDE is back to 4.8.5, kdevelop lost hundreds of plugins (exaggeration) and
    my kernel isn't 3.6.

    What did I do wrong?
    I though tumbleweed means latest software like Arch has.

    There are some articles on what Tumbleweed means. Question: how did you install, i.e. from which medium, i.e. KDE LiveCD, DVD?

    I'd rather see the zypper output refined to
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    BTW: there is no such thing as Tumbleweed KDE, neither is there a KDE_Tumbleweed repo. ATM the Tumbleweed repo is beginning to get populated.
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 30 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE 12.2 x86_64 + KDE 4.10 + GNOME 3
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Tumbleweed

    Anything that can go wrong.... will teach us

    I installed openSUSE from a 12.2 dvd and added the repos for KDE 4.9.
    Dunno if there's such thing as a tumbleweed kde repo, but at least I found one when I google'd it.

    You answered your own question with "I though[t]...". Did you read the forum articles about it? Did you read the wiki page on Tumbleweed?

    Anyway, latest software doesn't refer to the same level on openSUSE as it does on Arch. Why should it, when linux distros vary so much in content.

    Tumbleweed doesn't roll in the same way that Arch does. With a new release of openSUSE, Tumbleweed's repo is emptied to be re-based on the new openSUSE release. Some time is allowed for the new openSUSE release to settle down. Then the repo begins to repopulate, and with a bit of patience you get back to your previous package release levels then onwards and upwards...

    I simply added the KDE 4.9 Upstream repo (KDE repositories - openSUSE) with the repos listed on Tumbleweed's page (Portal:Tumbleweed - openSUSE). I haven't had any issues so far. Hope that helps!

    KDE 4.9.x will be added to the Tumbleweed repository as soon as an issue with libqt4 gets resolved.

    That is good to know. Have you, by any chance, any link for us to follow that issue?

    The best way to ask and keep track of these issues including a response from Greg KH is on the openSUSE Factory mail list.
    Check it out. I find it very informative.

    Click on this link to mail list or opensuse@factory archives.
