    Default Installing an update

    I'm using eric 4.2.1 and It is asking to update to version 4.4.4. Which of these files should I choose http://sourceforge.net/projects/eric-ide/files/eric4 tar.gz or zip? Once I get the correct file how do I install it? I asked them at the IRC but they kept babbling about some RPM file which I can't find. So I'm asking here instead.

    gz or zip?? makes no difference, both are easy to unpack..


    HINT: it is all the stuff that comes BEFORE the gz or zip that makes a
    BIG difference..

    but, why download source and compile it if you don't yet know about gz
    or zip??

    babbling about a file you can't find?
    use this search engine: http://software.opensuse.org/search and then
    install the .rpm by

    1. right click on file
    2. select Actions > Install with YaST
    3. give root pass when asked
    4. sit back and enjoy the magic
    5. when complete you should find a new icon in your menu, not sure
    where, maybe: Menu > Development > [something]
