Thread: Upgrading KDE 4, getting conflict

  1. #1

    Default Upgrading KDE 4, getting conflict

    I'm doing the "switch to this version" but I'm getting a conflict. What do I choose to do?

    k3b-codecs...requires k3b = 1.69, but this requirement cannot be provided

    It says it deleted the k3b provider and the k3b packman provider is uninstallable. Then it gives me three options:

    * install k3b from excluded repository
    * deinstall k3b
    * break k3b by ignoring dependencies

    Which do I choose?

    If you are doing the kde switch it is trying to switch packman k3b to kde's k3b - confusing but you need k3b from packman so the excluded repo is packman because the focus is currently on kde4

    Install from excluded should allow k3b to be from packman

    Argh! Now (during download) I'm getting this error:

    Code:
    Download failed:
    File '/i586/kdm-branding-OpenSUSE-11.2-29.5.15.i586.rmp' not found on medium...
    What do I do? I tried "retry" but it throws that over and over again.

    skip
    it may be an obsolete package

    we can deal with it later

    An obsolete package will show in software management - view by repos and select 'system'
    with red text in the version number
    selecting the version tab will reveal no providing repo

    N.B
    Packages may also show with red if the installed package is newer than any of the repos currently provide. Sometimes packages get rolled back, so this can happen more often than you might think.

    OK, also getting it for

    kdebase4-runtime-branding-openSUSE
    kdelibs4-branding-openSUSE
    kdebase4-workspace-branding-openSUSE

    I have a feeling it's all the openSUSE branding stuff.

    I looked at the repository in firefox (Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2/i586) and I think I know the problem:

    - it's asking for version 29.5.x but the repository has 29.4.x versions!

    Why is this? And how do I fix this? (I don't want to lose openSUSE's look and feel)

    Try not to worry about it, the last thing you want is to abort, just skip. When it's done, don't logout. Just start software management again and go to kde4 desktop repo and let me see a screen of the installed packages, to the extent you can anyway

    OK, I'll put up a screenshot. Just a quick note:

    - it also said it could not find these either:
    kio_sysinfo-11.2
    kio_sysinfo-branding-openSUSE
    kdebase4

    kdebase4 worries me as that seems like the main thing in KDE, no?


    There's 5 screenshots (I'm only allowed to include 4 in one post, so the last is in the next post):

    Last one (from the set of 5 screenshots):

    NOTE: Start in previous post to see all my installed packages from this repo

    Default Re: Upgrading KDE 4, getting conflict

    Here's the stuff I had to skip:

    kdebase4-runtime-branding-openSUSE
    kdelibs4-branding-openSUSE
    kdebase4-workspace-branding-openSUSE
    kio_sysinfo-11.2
    kio_sysinfo-branding-openSUSE
    kdebase4

    For all of them the issue was because it was looking for version 29.5.x when the repo has only version 29.4.x. Can I just install the RPMs that are on the repo (the 29.4.x ones)?
