    Hi, I cannot remember what version KDE is on 11, but to upgrade to 4.2 simply add the following repositories

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_UNSTABLE_Desktop

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/UNSTABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/UNSTABLE:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0

    To add 3.5 you will need the following repositories

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.0

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Community/openSUSE_11.0

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Backports/openSUSE_11.0

    Just open up Yast, go to software repositories, and add them in there. Then do an update, and it will update your KDE 4 to 4.2. I think then go into software Mangerment, and then add 3.5 in there.

    The advice given above is fine. Just be aware that 4.2 unstable is just that, unstable. Though I am using it now and it's pretty darn good. The Copy function in Dolphin is not working. But it's working much quicker and Looks better now too.

    Upgrading can be tricky and you will need to use the update all unconditionally function in software management and may need to remove power devil and one or two other packages.

    As for kde3. You might want to be careful adding too many repo's, Backports in particular may conflict with the likes of Packman. It's fine if you really know what you are doing.!!

    are you copying and pasting the link, if so it is missing out a lot of the link, you will need to right click on them and select copy link location.

    I would really like to install the very latest KDE 4.x (4.3 maybe) in a VirtualBox VM; what would be the best distro to install for this purpose? IE, all I want is the most bleeding edge KDE 4 I can have, so that I can see as close as possible to what the KDE devs are running, whether it be openSUSE, Kubuntu, or Slackware (hee, hee). Any suggestions?

    Dell Inspiron 1440 - C2D@2.2Ghz; 4GB RAM; openSUSE 11.2 x86; KDE 4.4.1
    Dell Latitude D531 - AMD Turion X2 64@2.0Ghz; 2GB RAM; Linux Mint 8
