    Default How to update KDE to the newest version?

    openSUSE 11.2
    KDE Version 4.3.1 (KDE 4.3.1) "release 6"

    On KDE.org it says that KDE 4.3.3 has been released with lots and lots of bugfixes so i wonder how i can update to that version..

    Add these repositories

    KDE/Repositories - openSUSE

    Then open Yast Software Management, Click view by pattern. Choose the KDE4 Base System, then click Package>All in this list>Update Unconditionally. Then choose KDE4 Desktop Environment, then click Package>All in this list>Update Unconditionally.

    Caf will probably be writing a how-to for us 11.2 users.

    Take Care,

    what do i put in <repo_name>?
    Code:
    zypper ar "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/43/openSUSE_11.2" KDE43
    
    zypper ref
    zypper dup -r KDE43

    That hard?

    <repo_name> is the name of the repo you gave it, in our case KDE43 (or an alias)... to see repo names, do zypper lr

    What is the main difference between the two repo's:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/43/openSUSE_11.2

    -AND-

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_Factory

    One says KDE 4.3.x and the other says 4.3 + Patches? What about upgrading to 4.4 when it's eventually released?

    main diff is that 43 repo keeps packages a bit more stable while factory can change up to 3 times/day and often does not guarantee stability

    Hi, I've just moved to openSUSE yesterday from Kubuntu. Quite liking it

    Can you tell me why 11.2 installs 4.3.1 by default and not 4.3.3? Will 4.3.3 be pushed through the standard updates? Is it recommended to add the repository to get KDE updates or stick with the standard repos only?

    Thanks.

    Because only 4.3.1 was available when they did version freezing in the build service before pushing out 11.2 some time later

    No, SUSE does not provide version upgrades through its default Update repository. This is to minimize breakage and maintenance overhead of multiple versions. If you want newer version of packages, you'd have to add extra repos, like the one above if you want KDE 4.3.3
