    Based on this post, KDE 4.3.5 is now on the stable KDE repo. For a list of the KDE repos, see

    KDE/Repositories - openSUSE

    You might want to remove the Videolan repo, as that often causes conflicts with Packman. Why you have both VLC and libdvdcss repos, I don't know, but it's not necessary to keep the other one once you've installed the package.

    You can disable the Nvidia repo. You will only need this on kernel updates. What's the reason for the "Contrib" repo?

    Forgot to delete that one. Used it at one time for some apps.
    7 | download.opensuse.org-standard | Main Repository (Contrib) | Yes | Yes

    Also gonna delete these since I do not use them.
    10 | repo-debug | openSUSE-11.2-Debug | No | Yes
    13 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.2-Source | No | Yes

    Just wasnt sure if there was another since when I search for updates I always see the 4.3.1. stuff in there but the 4.3.5 stable always overtakes it anyway since its the repo I set to use.

    Don't delete the source repo. That's needed for the kernel source, which you'll need for building modules for VMs, drivers, etc.
