Thread: Upgrading to KDE 4.2 issues

  1. #1

    Default Upgrading to KDE 4.2 issues

    I am using the KDE 4.2 repo and the 4.2 community repo to upgrade to KDE 4.2, but there are problems.

    Firstly, the KDE4base does not show up in the 4.2 repo. How do I upgrade the base?

    Secondly, I tried to upgrade all in the list if newer versions exist, under 4.2 repo, but there are SO MANY dependency issues it got insane.

    Any ideas?

    I haven't committed to anything yet.

    I did it simply by going to KDE/KDE4 - openSUSE

    The only dependency conflict I got related to Gwenview; so I asked it to leave the earlier version and I have had no problems.

    KDE4.2.* (How To Add) Guide. - openSUSE Forums

    I have read threads where users disable ALL repos except oos and non-oss, keeping of course the kde42' repo's
    and this eliminates some of the issues.

    FYI- there were changes in naming policy. On release packages like amarok were kde4-amarok
    Now it's amarok

    and the kde3 ver is: kde3-amarok

    Dependency issues are easy to resolve, just remember this and you want to change vendor to Build Service

    Personally I leave my repos intact and change the repo Updates priority to 99

    I forgot to mention I am upgrading from KDE 4.1 to 4.2

    The main problem I have is with kde runtime 4.2, which it doesn't find and is required for so many packages.

    I have been running KDE 4.1 since installation of SuSE and have added many packages. I don't want them downgraded or changed due to some problem with a dependency being upgraded and incompatible, etc...

    Upgrading plasma changes ktorrent plasm, which changes ktorrent and makes the dht addon function unavailabe.

    What a mess!

    Ok, I am in the middle of the one-click install recommended above.

    Illiteracy again in KDE...

    "The applications a KDE 4 installation would contain if it would be the default desktop."

    What does this mean? It heads an empty box. There is no colon, so I am not sure if there should be a list following it or not. It sounds like it, but the punctuation is messed up and the absence of a list makes it suspicious. Can't people communicate in English when using English? Wow...

    Ok, rant phase over... continuing with install.

    Next screen:

    If you continue, the following changes will be made to your system:

    Looks fine.

    Using the customize button has no way of getting back out of the customize mode, even with going back and clicking next again. ARGH!

    Restarting one-click install.

    Beautiful! When I click Next on the second screen I get a warning:

    Warning
    Have you reviewed the changes that will be made to your system?
    Malicious packages could damage your system.
    []Do not ask me again
    Yes / No

    My GOSH! So with the default I might get malicious packages installed on my system?

    I clicked yes and got another confidence builder.

    Import Untrusted GnuPG Key...
    meaning that you trust the owner of the key. You should be sure that you can trust the owner and that the key really belongs to that owner before importing it.

    What in the world! I do not even know who it is. How can I be sure I can trust them? This is allowing someone access to my system as if they were my good friend. Scary!

    Next screen... (I trusted just to get to the next screen, which I am afraid anyone would do):

    Perform Installation
    Total
    (nothing below that)

    Suddenly, out of the blue - DONE!
    Weird!

    Final Screen:

    Software installation
    The installation has failed. For more information, see the log file at /var/log/YaST2/y2log. Failure stage was: Installing Packages
    Error Message
    An error occurred while attempting to install the specified packages. Review the yast2 logs for more information.

    Excellent! I wanted to dig through log files and read a mess of output.

    Nice, but why would it claim this didn't exist? My repo is enabled and on refresh.

    Just post your dependency error.
    Use the expert button in the error box to save to file and then paste here. We'll take a look

    I tried the one-click install again and it gave me a very long list that shows that it wants to change the vendor on nearly everything installed and that it wants to downgrade everything else.

    I thought this was an UPGRADE...

    Well, it looks like I shouldn't do this on my production system I use for my daily work.
