    Default Post 11.1 installation- system update?

    Hi,

    I did a fresh install of openSUSE11.1 and so by default KDE4.1 is installed. I want to update it to the latest KDE4.3
    How to do that? Is it necessary to first upgrade to KDE4.2?
    How to remove the default firefox and install firefox3.5.1?
    Any links for beginner's post installation?
    Regards
    Mukul

    That post says to upgrade to 4.2 first. Do you think that is essential? Why cant I directly upgrade directly to 4.3?
    I hope yast can resolve the dependencies. I've moved from Debian so I dont know much about openSUSE.

    ok, let me get this right: you don't know much about openSUSE, but on
    the other hand the how-to is written by a guy named Carl
    <http://forums.opensuse.org/members/caf4926.html> who is a moderator
    here and has made over *NINE THOUSAND* posts..

    then you ask _me_ why he made it the way _he_ did, and what i think?

    i think installing KDE4.1 is a giant waste of time (unless one is an
    eye-candy hound), but if i *were* to do it i'd immediately update to
    4.3 using Carls how-to *exactly*, and i wouldn't even ask _him_ (not
    me!) why i shouldn't do it direct from 4.1 to 4.3!

    but, you sure can try to go direct .1 to .3, and if successful you are
    invited to write the how-to for that...or, just tag your better way on
    to Carl's thread..

    Hi,

    well, I took the advised upgrade path:
    4.1 -> 4.2 -> 4.3

    at present my system is updating to 4.2 (1GB download reqd).
    Then on weekend I'll upgrade it to 4.3RC3 or may be next week i directly install 4.3.
    Regards
