    Default Digikam 1.6 upgrade failure

    I attempted to install the latest version of Digikam, v1.6, by connecting the Factory repository , then an upgrade via YAST.
    It automagically included upgrade of certain kde4 packages to v2.5.80.

    System ran OK for a while, then I got a Plasma Desktop Shell crash notice and now cannot restart X. I can boot to level 3. I upgraded all the kde components to 2.5.80, but that did not help.

    Has anyone successfully done this? Was there a hidden secret to success?

    If all else fails, am I correct that
    Code:
    zypper dist-upgrade --from #kde45 repository
    will return my system to kde 4.5.4 ?

    digikam 1.6 on KDE 2.5.80 runs fine for me. there weren't any problems
    importing the old DB either.

    your symptoms sound like you've been bitten by the proprietary
    display-driver / KDE4 / whatever incompatibility bug; there's plenty
    threads in these forums about that.

    dist-upgrade should bring your system back to KDE 4.5.x, but it's possible
    or even likely that some of your data, i.e., contacts, etc., will get
    messed up.

    This computer has a 'legacy' ATI device, runs on the open source radeon/radeonhd driver (or should it say it did).

    All had been running well on kde 4.5.3.

    Perhaps I should try a reinstall of 4.5.80?

    It's not pretty.

    It sounds like you know the answer to your problem... Remove Factory beta 4.6
    Roll back to the release 45 packages

    You do not need repo #1 (QT)

    KDE release:/45 (KDE 4.5.4) and Distro:/Factory (KDE 4.5.80) aren't
    compatible. you'll have to choose one or the other & do distro-upgrade
    from the remaining one--unless you want to be really safe and enable only
    OSS, non-OSS, update, and packman.

    i don't know if KDE Qt does any harm, but it's certainly not required for
    normal operations. i'd get rid of that if possible.

    (but perhaps better wait for the big guns here; they have more experience
    explaining these things and are less error-prone than i.)

    Thanks for the dialog.

    Knowing phani had achieved success, I tried first
    Code:
        zypper dist-upgrade --from #Factory repository
    and now have the 4.5.80 desktop running.
    A few messages to deal with, but close! (I think)

    good luck! i was rather lucky 'til now; did some not very clever things
    and am still up & running with pretty much the same configuration. i do
    have all my important data on separate partitions though, and until i'm
    fairly sure things will remain civil, i don't even mount them. (plus a
    backup, as soon as i find the time; the last one had to be sacrificed for
    the upgrade from 11.3 to factory.) i'd strongly recommend you take steps
    to avoid disaster. a fresh install when everything important is secure
    isn't all that bad.
