    You should upgrade. There are significant bug fixes from 4.1. The only issue I've had with the upgrade has been resolved by either removing plasmarc or installing the correct version of Qt. The software installer seems to have a problem with installing the correct Qt version.

    Yes. 4.2 is leaps and bounds better than 4.1.

    Have a look at KDE/KDE4 - openSUSE which explains what you have to do to get KDE4.2. You should disable any KDE4.1 repositories that you have enabled.

    Do update all unconditionally in Packman

    The repo's you need for 4.2

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop


    Optional:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.1
