    Default Update to KDE 4.6.1

    Hi,

    Sorry for stupid question, but it's not obvious for me.

    Currently I'm running 11.4 with default 4.6.0 KDE version installed. I want to have KDE 4.6.1 as it has many bug fixes I need. So, do I have to add some repositories to update, change vendors or whatever, or I can just wait until new KDE version will come as update in the regular openSUSE update repository?

    Thx a lot for clarification in advance.

    and the same with packman, of course: 11.4 instead of 11.3.

    It might be worth waiting a little as that repository is in transition to KDE-4.6.2. Updating right now will probably lead to conflicts and a broken system.
