    Default KDE 4.3

    Hi Guys,

    The official version of KDE 4.3 is almost out. I can't wait any longer. Its eating me up. I need the new features

    How do I upgrade from 4.2.4. Hopefully this will help other noobs about this too.

    Also, for the benefit for those will be using the official version in August, can you guys also state how to upgrade when the official one actually comes out.

    Thanks Guys,

    RC3 is released and is in factory repos.

    This link provide easy update features through 1 click installer.
    Once factory repos added, next time update will update the kde to latest one when released. Can use terminal to update the system with zypper up, once released.

    Thanks greatly for this info. I've setup an RSS feed to the KDE site so I can have more info quicker.

    What is the hard way of doing it. I really would like to get myself off of the one click installers because they tend to add redundant repositories sometimes.

    > I need the new features

    just as a matter of personal interest, i wonder what features have
    been added..

    have they yet added stability, reliability, documentation and a
    feature set equal to or exceeding (say) KDE3.5.x ?

    Did I help you with kde42 recently?
    To update to 4.3RC3 you need these repo's

    Desktop
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1

    Community
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

    You need to disable any kde repo's you have already (eg; kde 42' repo's)

    Then in software management - filter by repo - select the new Desktop kde4 Factory and from the 'Package' menu along the top of Yast select Update all in this list Unconditionally.
    Do the same in Community kde4 Factory
    Accept

    Can I say, look out for defunct packages. Ones which have dropped the kde4 prefix. eg; kde4-dolphin, kde4-amarok. Those packages still exist but only for older kde4 versions.

    If you filter by repo's and select the 'System', scroll thru. Look for RED packages. Use the versions tab to check it.

    You can add factory repo, and then just do zypper up in terminal.

    Factory repo here.

    Hope this helps.

    My Sincerest apologies for the repeat. I must look a bit closer as to these sort of things. Next time I will look twice before posting

    Well, I've tried disabling all my repositories except for the NVIDIA, update and then added the two factory repos that you specified. I selected all to be uncondionally updated but got dependancy errors. Nothing supports the desktop 4.2.98 stuff for some reason
