    Exclamation How do you upgrade from KDE 3.5 to 4.1

    To whom it may concern

    When upgraded my machine from Suse 10.3 to 11.0 and install KDE 4.0 .... I had major problem with video card with my machine ...

    So I install Suse 11.0 with KDE 3.5 ....

    Now that KDE 4.1 has been release and video card problem has been resolved ...

    I wanted to know how do I upgrade my KDE from 3.5 to 4.1 (By Passing 4.0) ... Can I update from 3.5 to 4.1 or do I have to wipe my machine and start all over with the install of suse 11.0 to KDE 4.1 ...

    Thanks

    Hmm...I use only the first TWO repos that Caf mentions.
    [Notice the phrase 'factory-desktop' in both the first and third.]

    If I enable the 3rd, it wants to DOWNGRADE a module, so I think
    that means there there are duplicates of stuff in the 3rd.

    And, to be clear, you are not really upgrading from KDE 3.x to 4.1,
    you are adding 4.1 (i.e. keeping 3.x). [Which is a good idea, since 4.1 is still
    considered 'beta-quality' by most of us. I play in 4.1 and work in 3.x.]

    the community repo changed recently, the old location is empty, this is correct.
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

    Upgrades to 4.1 will in some cases mean a downgrade in some packages which are in the 4.0.4 repos
    This has been the case for some time with 4.1 in beta and rc stages.

    cookdav is correct about 3 and 4. It's an upgrade in 4 if you are only running 4.0.4
    kde3 is another option for a desktop and is more stable
    add this repo to get the very latest in kde3
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.0
    having first installed it from the patterns in yast software management
    kde3 base
    kde3 desktop

    then use the above repo to upgrade all packages
    Leap 15.1_KDE
