    Default KDE 4.2.x Repositories - 11.1

    Hello,
    I tried adding the 4.2.4 repo's and these worked fine. When I tried to do a full system update (1275 packages), I got all kinds of errors concerning package dependencies.
    Can someone point me to a doc which shows me the best way to perform this update?
    Thanks..

    since you didn't say, i/we can only guess you added several unneeded
    repos and tried to get to "the bleeding edge" with everything...as far
    as i know no one anywhere recommends such action....just too much that
    can (and will) go wrong..

    read here:


    1. repository management http://tinyurl.com/d36dml
    especially "In general, keep your repositories to a minimum to avoid
    conflicts and breakage. A good choice would be those added by default
    at install: oss, non-oss, updates + just 'Packman' and ATI or Nvidia
    if you need these. That should give you all you need."


    2. newbie info: http://tinyurl.com/6jwtg9
    especially, in that thread's fifth posting, the section on repos where
    it says: "when setting up your repositories by following the guidance
    in that page <http://opensuse-community.org/Repositories>, initially
    set up only 4 repositories (repos). Just 4. No others. Those 4 are
    OSS, Non-OSS, Update, and Packman. Adding others can cause
    compatibility problems, and users who have advanced past the new user
    stage may think it is better to select more than these four--and you
    may also, when the time comes and when you learn how to solve problems
    that may arise from having others. Until then, stick to the 4. One may
    also have to briefly add other repos, install an app, and then remove
    the repos (for example for installing a graphic driver, or installing
    an updated alsa sound driver)."

    3. official documentation: pick your distro from the page
    http://en.opensuse.org/Documentation..._Documentation
    and, then in the left column look for "Installation and Setup" >
    "Installing, Removing and Updating Software" > "Keeping the system
    up-to-date"

    4. downloaded documentation -- if you elected to install documentation
    locally you might find it here (might not, mine is for 10.3, maybe it
    got moved a little in later versions...):
    file:///usr/share/doc/manual/opensuse-manual_en/manual/index.html

    and then, on that page click on:
    file:///usr/share/doc/manual/opensuse-manual_en/manual/cha.onlineupdate.html#sec.onlineupdate.you
    and/or
    file:///usr/share/doc/manual/opensuse-manual_en/manual/cha.update.html

    read and Have Fun!
