Thread: Opensuse automatically installed KDE 4.4

  1. #1

    Exclamation Opensuse automatically installed KDE 4.4

    I recently did a fresh reinstall of opensuse 11.2 kde. After I installed it I updated the computer. However, when I returned to my computer after the update, I found the window borders to be missing and that I couldn't do anything with the desktop. I restarted, and lo and behold! I had KDE 4.4! Except I didn't want to install it. I perfectly like kde 4.3, and would probably prefer to move back to it until kde 4.4 becomes stable. Why did this happen? Had opensuse moved on to kde 4.4 already? Is there a way to get KDE 4.3 without reinstalling?

    Is it maybe those unstable KDE repos? They might have snuck in there when I installed bangarang...

    Indeed it is
    Remove them (2,3) and run this from a su terminal

    Code:
    zypper dup
    It might not be pretty though. It might even be worth re-installing but try the zypper first

    Maybe it would be easier to fix the problems that you have and keep 4.4. I have it running on a very old, low-spec machine and it works just fine.

    If you get it working ok, disable the repos so that unstable updates don't break you.

    Actually prexy, you gave me an idea

    OP @salixman could change the unstable to:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2

    I'm using this repo, it gives 4.4RC2
    Change it then do this on it

    I would still remove QT though

    Reading all this, the title should change from "openSUSE automatically installed KDE4.4" to:

    I accidently installed KDE4 4.4

    IMHO one should never ever use UNSTABLE repo's as long as one thinks openSUSE does things without being instructed to do so.

    Hey, thanks for all the help, I went with caf4926's suggestion. It's switching the packages right now, so I'll tell you how it goes.
    @Knurpht: Yeah, I probably shouldn't have been messing around with unstable anything at all. I had just heard about a new media player for KDE (bangarang). It interested me, considering amarok is considered the best media player by most and is native to KDE. I made the stupid mistake of installing it while doing a system update, something I won't do again. And yeah, autmotically installed really isn't the best way to say it.
