    Hi KDE Stable contains KDE 4.6.0 (What came with openSUSE 11.4) while KDE Release 46 contains the latest of the KDE 4.6 series (currently 4.6.2).
    Desktop: Gigabyte GA-Z270-HD3 - Core i7 7700K - openSUSE Leap 42.2 KDE
    Laptop: HP EliteBook 8770W - Core i7 3940XM - openSUSE Leap 42.2 KDE

    thanks, really worth upgrading to Version 4.6.x or stability can be lost?

    In opensuse 11.3 when I upgraded to kde 4.5.5 the first week I had problems rebooting.

    please do not loose sight of the fact that if you were using openSUSE
    11.1 with KDE 3 or Gnome 2 you would be using a system FAR superior to
    anything offered by Win7 tomorrow.....

    so, don't be in such a rush to 'upgrade'....unless of course it is your
    desire to always have the problems associated with being out on the edge..

    ymmv!
    (notice i'm running 11.3, and six or eight weeks ago i was running 10.3,
    stable as a rock is how i like it...)

    ok, I kde 4.6.0 good works, but as in version 4.6.2 corrects several errors ...

    If you have problems with version 4.6.2 how I can go back to 4.6.0?

    thanks.

    i don't know, it has to do with having the repo for the version you want
    enabled, then in yast refresh and use the switch to function...someone
    else will have to give the details--or, better use the forum's advanced
    search to learn how....this has been covered many times..

    In 11.4? And you want back to the KDE that shipped with 11.4.



    I would disable all of the KDE46 repos first.

    And then I would use the repo switch several times in a row in order to (re)create the repository order that I would have if KDE46 had never been enabled. For instance with only "the four", I would switch to "OSS", and then for good measure to "OSS Updates" and "Non-OSS", and after that switch to "Packman." This may be more complicated, depending on how many repositories are enabled; for instance with the repos "Mozilla" and "KDE Updated Apps" in addition it would have to be like: OSS > Non-OSS, Updates > Mozilla, KDE Updated Apps > Packman.

    Now, switching from the newer KDE 4.6.2 packages to the older KDE 4.6.0 packages will trow a lot of dependency errors. However, I would just ignore them for now, if I can have enough faith that the end result will be OK (- with just "the four" it should!).

    After switching and ignoring any dependency conflicts, just before installing I would reset all ignored dependencies and check. And only then I would actually let YaST do the install.

    And after the install is complete, I would manually look through YaST package list for any packages that came from KDE46 and are still installed, i.e. orphaned packages, and remove them. They should be red and relatively easy to find.

    In short:
    (1) -- Disable KDE46 repos
    (2a) -- Switch Packages and ignore conflicts
    (2b) -- Reset and Check conflicts
    (2c) -- Accept and Install
    (3) -- Remove orphans

    (1) is done in YaST Software Repositories. (2) and (3) are done in YaST Software Management.

    ...except that such a system won't get any security updates or bugfixes. Remember: taking care of security fixes != being a versionjunkie. Fast updates are one of the major reasons why Linux is a relatively secure system.

    More infos about the various KDE-repositories can be found →here. I personally recommend the respective 'stable'-repos.
