    Default Please assist / test KDE upgrade for Tumbleweed

    Here's a quote from Greg k-h on the mailing list:
    opensuse-factory] tumbleweed testing for KDE 4.6
    ..............
    ........
    ...
    I've got it all building finally, and it seems to work for me, with the
    one exception of there not being any konqueror-plugins-lang package
    being generated by anything in the KDE:Release:46 repo, so you can't
    update the konqueror-plugins package.

    I'd appreciate some testers if at all possible before I push it to the
    main Tumbleweed repository.

    The repo is at:
    openSUSE:Tumbleweed:KDE

    Please test and let me know if it works or not for you.

    thanks,

    greg k-h
    You would be helping if you trialled the upgrade and reported your results to the mailing list (or if you're not list friendly, put your experiences in this thread). How to run/test the upgrade is in the next post. C'mon guys, be adventurous.

    Default re: Please assist / test KDE upgrade for Tumbleweed

    I added this repo:
    HTML Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tumbleweed:/KDE/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/
    Called it KDE_TW
    Disabled all other repos except this test repo and Tumbleweed
    and ran
    Code:
    zypper dup --from KDE_TW
    you'll get this dependency message:
    Code:
    Problem: konqueror-plugins-lang-4.3.1-11.14.2.noarch requires konqueror-plugins = 4.3.1, but this requirement cannot be provided
      deleted providers: konqueror-plugins-4.3.1-11.14.2.x86_64
     Solution 1: deinstallation of konqueror-plugins-lang-4.3.1-11.14.2.noarch
     Solution 2: keep obsolete konqueror-plugins-4.3.1-11.14.2.x86_64
     Solution 3: break konqueror-plugins-lang by ignoring some of its dependencies
    I selected option 2 to keep (i.e. to not update) the Konqueror plugins

    The upgrade went completely smoothly. Afterwards the DE was in disarray due to old KDE programs running so I rebooted. At the prompt I had to select the session to be KDE (plasma) and logged on easily. So far the KDE version (4.6.2 r1) is running very nicely.

    Thanks for testing.

    You shouldn't have had to reboot, but a simple logout/login should have solved the
    problem of running older libraries at the moment.

    But anyway, glad it's working for you, if there are no other problems reported in the
    next few days, I'll move it to the main Tumbleweed repo.

    thanks,

    I tried the logout/login method first. It commenced the KDE startup but then flipped back to the login screen again, then commenced KDE again, the flipped again, endless loop. So then I rebooted.

    *there* is a good clue for the bug hunters...and, i think more than one
    is seeking the answer to the "login screen again" bug...

    on your other rock (re tact): rebooting _is_ an old habit and hard to
    break, a recognition of fact which should not cause anyone to get their
    feelings hurt....

    and, with this post i see that more and more rebooting may come to be
    needed here also....sigh.

    I only ran into one problem: after upgrading to Tumbleweed KDE, I logged out but could not login again. So I logged in once with the KDE failsafe option; after that I've had no problems.

    I'm running 32-bit Tumbleweed in a VirtualBox VM. (on a Windows Vista laptop)
