    Default 11.2 upgrade to KDE 4.3.5 says failed, but installs just fine?

    First, I'm new to OpenSuse and rpm. Been using Debian for 7 years, so be gentle ;-)

    I upgrade KDE 4.3.1 to 4.3.5 through the one-click install. After confirming some actions due to dependencies the install runs and in the end it said it failed to install a bunch of packages. These packages installed just fine and everything works as it should.

    I was wondering if this happens more often, as it makes me kinda nervous if the installer warns me? Perhaps even more if it warns about things that aren't correct.

    probably orphaned packages in your list, marked to update, but they are no longer available.

    Did you let YaST ignore dependencies (never do so!)? Could you run

    Code:
    zypper verify
    and give us the output?

    Besides, one-clickers are okay for single apps, but when upgrading / installing bundles such as a desktop environment one should always use the regular way via YaST / zypper, for one-clickers still sometimes fail then.

    Zypper seems happy. I'm not sure about any orphaned packages. I don't think so. I'm still playing with it, so I was testing 1-click for bigger upgrades, though that works just fine in "the-other-linux-distro" (it's just my point of reference...).

    zypper verify
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...

    Dependencies of all installed packages are satisfied.
    OpenSuse has lot's good things going for itself :-)

    I suppose your system is okay. Orphaned packages won't hurt it.

    The 1Click is incorrect.
    It still has the old kde-4* packages in list.
    I told them in #opensuse-kde and was asked to open a bug report → https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=576632

    Nothing happened so far as I see

    It should be generally working though.
    So after install you should check the added KDE 4.3.5-repo if all packages have been switched
