Thread: KDE Package Repositories for OS 11.1

  1. #1

    Default KDE Package Repositories for OS 11.1

    I realize the KDE Package repositories listed at KDE/Repositories - openSUSE are not officially supported by OS. But they are a complete mess AFAICS. I added the distribution release and stable sets to YAST, and enabled them, but attempting to update packages in these repositories leads to endless conflicts because of missing dependency updates. So I just disabled them and gave up.

    But why should these repository be so bad. Evidently the maintainers don't care that they add packages to them which have dependencies on other packages which are nowhere to be found within the set of repostories.

    It is very disappointing to want to get the latest KDE updated for OS 11.1 and to be stymied by these poorly kept repositories.

    Just in case you think I'm of evil intent, here is where it is from
    KDE/KDE4 - openSUSE

    EDIT

    Hang on with this. I see it's pointing to Factory. You don't want that
    . I will post back soon.

    OK
    Let me see your repo list. To get that open a terminal and do

    zypper lr -d

    OK. Now there is a change and the devs have shifted the kde stable to supply kde4.3.4

    So you need these 2 repos

    Desktop
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2

    Community
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2

    All your repos should be at 99 priority
    Then use the System Package Switcher

    It's worth protecting k3b from Packman, any other media savvy upgrades got from there, that KDE4 will replace.

    I used (having protected k3b & ktorrent), where kde4-desktop was the higher priority KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop repo.

    zypper ref && zypper dup --from kde4-desktop

    Has worked nicely, and only found 1 bad bug to report so far, and remains of X glitches (but better than before).

    One click Install should be fine, but as advised, having simple repository list is very good idea, to avoid confusing things badly.

    I don't find the package switcher in my 11.1 S/oftware Management

    Is Update All Unconditionally safe with the 4.3.4 repo selected?

    ???

    Changing my 11.1 repos to these any kde4 packages I try to update gives this dependency error

    nothing provides libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.11)(64bit)

    ???
