    Default After setting up 11.4 distro to update to KDE4.8..no update.

    I have set up my 11.4 instance to update to the latest KDE 4.8.
    After running zypper dup I saw a great deal of KDE apps being updated,
    but afterwards all applications state that KDE is still at 4.6 release 6.
    If I run zypper dup now, I get nothing to do.

    List of repos:

    This I solved it. Needed to disable the OSS repo.

    i do not know: is there a how-to move to KDE4.8?
    if so, did you follow it?

    i wonder: did it tell you to 'switch vendor' or change the priorities of
    any repos?

    again: i do not know...i have not considered moving off of 4.6.0, so i
    have not looked for a how to to either 4.7 or 4.8 . . .

    but, you are the second person i read this hour with the "i'm still on
    the old KDE" and i have to wonder if the how-to is so broken it can't be
    followed consistently!!

    The 'zypper dup --from KDE4.8' does the same as the vendor switch AFAIK

    I used this one:

    http://anl4u.com/blog/install-kde-4-8-in-opensuse/

    It's not that it's broken just missing some details.
    I often run newer KDE on old OS until OS ends up as unsupported.
    If it's stable and works I don't care, but I do like to keep abreast
    of what is going on with the newer KDE versions. Seems okay, the new
    activity manager is handy and looks like the annoying problem with
    the panel not allowing windows to cover it has been fixed...that's worth
    the update in itself. : )

    i guess that is as good as any..

    i think i'll use the one i found taped to the wall in the
    laundromat...it said something different,
    Code:
    something like	"zypper dup --from KDE48"
    or was it	"zypper up --from KDE4.8" ?
    or		 "zypper dup -D --from KDE48main12.1" ?
    or		 "sudo zypper dup" ?
    or 		 what???
    but it beats me..

    i've looked and i can't find the one official, tested, approved,
    recommended and supported how-to install KDE4.8 on either 11.4 or 12.1,

    i did find what seems to be the way for Tumbleweed..

    i think i will wait until i see the how-to in one of these places:
