Thread: Trying to upgrade KDE in a stock installation.

  1. #1

    Default Trying to upgrade KDE in a stock installation.

    I installed openSUSE 11.2 over an old Fedora 11. So the data drive is not clean to begin with.

    I am trying to upgrade to KDE 4.3.3 from KDE 4.3.1 that came with the distro.

    I added some repositories from the instruction here: KDE/Repositories - openSUSE

    Then I did the following: (I also tried with the GUI but it never returned me new entries, frustrated me to no end.)

    firefly:/home/wei # zypper refresh
    Repository 'KDE 4.3.x' is up to date.
    Repository 'KDE 4.3.x community' is up to date.
    Repository 'KDE 4.3.x playground' is up to date.
    Repository 'Packman repository (openSUSE_11.2)' is up to date.
    Repository 'Main Repository (NON-OSS)' is up to date.
    Repository 'Main Repository (OSS)' is up to date.
    Repository 'Main Repository (Contrib)' is up to date.
    Repository 'Main Update Repository' is up to date.
    Repository 'openSUSE-11.2-Non-Oss' is up to date.
    Repository 'openSUSE-11.2-Oss' is up to date.
    Repository 'openSUSE-11.2-Update' is up to date.
    All repositories have been refreshed.
    firefly:/home/wei # zypper up
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...

    Nothing to do.

    firefly:/home/wei # rpm -qa | grep kde
    bundle-lang-kde-de-11.2-20.21.5.noarch
    kdebase4-workspace-branding-openSUSE-11.2-29.30.1.i586
    kdelibs4-4.3.1-6.7.2.i586

    How come I can not upgrade KDE from clearly 4.3.1 to 4.3.3, with the correct repository?

    This is what you probably need in yast2 repo. I used these repos to upgrade to 4.3.3

    Kde 4.3.3 factory desktop
    server name
    download.opensuse.org

    Directory on Server
    /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2

    server name
    download.opensuse.org

    Kde 4.3.3 community
    server name
    /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything
