    Default Upgrade to latest KDE 4.x (from KDE 4.2.1)

    Am presently using KDE 4.2.1 on openSUSE 11.1, and would like to upgrade to the latest KDE 4.3 / KDE 4.2.2.

    What are the repositories for the latest KDE 4.x (stable), including any additional Qt repo (if needed separately) ?

    PS
    I would not like to uninstall or disturb the KDE 3.5 that is also installed alongside & works properly with KDE 4.2.1 (Release 114).

    TIA

    KDE 4.2.1 should be fine for now, as KDE 4.3 is right around the corner.
    Hold off for a bit, unless you are having major bugs or something

    What about KDE 4.2.2 ?
    KDE 4.3 is right around the corner.
    When is KDE 4.3 (stable version) expected ? Will it be compatible to install alongwith KDE 3.5 ?

    Dont worry, you will be able to use both KDE 4.3 and 3.5.
    As for when KDE 4.3 is expected, so far its expected to be released on the 30th of July.
    As for KDE 4.2.2, eh its so close to the KDE 4.3 release right now I would not really bother with it.

    I found KDE 4.2.(3,4) more stable than other 4 releases.
    For KDE 4.3, i think its quite different from kde4.2.x.
    I tried M2, and it looks like very promising than previous releases with some major updates and alot of bug fixes.
    I m sure, KDE4.3 will rock and it will be a stable release so far like kde3.5 series.
    KDE4.3 is releasing on 28th July 2009.

    How exactly are you using 4.2.1?
    What are your repo's?
    Code:
    zypper lr --details
    I am using KDE 4.2.1 alongside KDE 3.5.10.

    The repos are:

    KDE 4.2.1
    Code:
    
    - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop/
    - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1/
    - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.1/
    - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Qt/openSUSE_11.1/
    KDE 3.5.10
    Code:
    - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Backports/openSUSE_11.1/
    - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Community/openSUSE_11.1/
    - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.1/
    While upgrading to KDE 4.2.2 or 4.3b, I would not like to disturb the KDE 3.5 install & it's packages.

    Thing is, you either don't update or your repo's are disabled because the Factory repos you have provide 4.3 beta!
    That's why I asked for:

    Code:
    zypper lr --details
