Thread: KDE 4.4 downgrade?

  1. #1

    Unhappy KDE 4.4 downgrade?

    I recently installed openSUSE in my old desktop (2.2GHz P4 with 512 RAM) and did a manual configuration at the end of the install. I saw a KDE upgrade in the recommended updates, and so i installed it. The only problem is, the "upgrade" is a slightly unstable DEVELOPMENT version of KDE: KDE4.5.x I want to "downgrade" back to KDE4.4 The main reason i want the downgrade is because i have discovered that KDE4.5.x is unstable when using the desktop extras (like the cube transition between desktops) and corrupts the swap and /home directories. I am new to linux, newer to openSUSE, and even newer to KDE, so i may be completely missing something. any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Unless you added unstable repos then an update to KDE 4.5 isn't likely.

    As for the corruption I would venture to guess that something else is going on.

    From the how-to section of this very board:
    Howto: Install KDE4.4 in openSUSE11.2 - openSUSE Forums

    Should get you up to KDE4.4.1.

    You do know that 4.4 is still beta. Not as unstable as 4.5 but.....

    If you want stability and don't want to beta test stick with 4.3.5.

    If performance is poor on your older hardware, you might want
