    thanks Carl for all your previous efforts and this info with warning...i
    have questions, please:

    - might this info mean that today it should be relatively safe to
    upgrade my 11.4's KDE (as born) 4.6.0 to 4.8.x (using the same
    instructions but the "/48/" repo)..

    and

    - since i've never done such 'bleeding edge' stuff before: can i ignore
    your note's warning on 4.9 because things have now "settled down" in 4.8.x

    i'm kinda looking to move a well running, very stable 11.4 into
    Evergreen, and "test" the openSUSE LTS for a year or two...but, would
    mixing in 4.8/9 be ill advised?

    uncharted waters, for me (preferring stable to bleeding)..

    @DD

    Knowing your fetish for all things stable, I'd be inclined to say No.

    Rather in your case, I'd say (because I know it's well within your skill set) to try your plans in a test partition.

    All in all R48 should be good for you.

    R49 is actually still a copy of Factory as far as I can see, but it basically what we'll have on 4.9 release proper on Aug 1st

    R4.8.4 is very stable for me in 5 computers running oS 11.4 and 12.1 with NVidia and ATI graphics, and it was noticeably faster than 4.6/4.7 loading apps. Dolphin works better also, less issues with drag-and-drop to hotspots. I only miss in-line editing of folder/filenames in Dolphin.

    Thanks for the heads up - I hadn't seen this repo. I did an update from 12.2 rc1 and it all worked fine.

    Might go unsaid but just to be sure for KDE 4.8 users remove the 48 repo after switching to 4.9?
