Thread: Factory or Upstream for latest KDE ?

  1. #1

    Default Factory or Upstream for latest KDE ?

    Hi

    I have read the information on SDB:KDE upgrade but I still can't work out which is the best to get the most stable version of KDE 4.6.3 for 11.4 factory or upstream ?


    Thanks

    Pat

    If you want stability then go for the opensuse kde46 repository, it is made for
    that case where you do not want to go for factory (unstable).

    Installation (zypper):

    KDE-Repo with Alias:
    Code:
    su -
    zypper ar -f "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.4/" "KDE_4.6"
    Increase priority of KDE-Repo:
    Code:
    zypper mr -p 50 "KDE_4.6"
    Perform upgrade for KDE:
    Code:
    zypper dup --from "KDE_4.6"
    Reboot

    Thanks. It's very unclear which one is preferable in the documentation.

    All upgraded to 4.6.3 now
