Thread: KDE 4.10.3 update - broken kdebase4-session package?

  1. #1

    Default KDE 4.10.3 update - broken kdebase4-session package?

    Hi there,

    Has anybody on openSUSE 12.3 i586 successfully upgraded KDE to 4.10.3 from the KDE:Release:410 repo? I just tried to update, and I get a bunch of errors relating to the kdebase4-session package, which seems to still be at version 4.10.2. As far as I can tell from the KDE:Release:410 repo page, the package successfully built for i586, but it appears that it's the wrong version. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I encounterd the same. Ran 'zypper up" again 2 minutes ago, all seems well now. Will get back here with results.

    Hi, thanks for confirming. Are you on x86_64? I'm on i586, and I just tried again (but using YaST package manager) and I'm still seeing the same error. Here's the link to the repo, where the kdebase4-session package is still at 4.10.2.

    Ah, good. Now it's starting the update, everything is clean now.

    Thanks!

    zypper up did run fine, could not login, moved to gdm, logged in on KDE, all well, updated kdebase4-session package installed, now moving back to kdm.
    All this on 64bit.

    Did you folks get kdm to work? I'm stuck using gdm, because when I set /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager to use kdp I just get a terminal login screen. I don't know how to proceed with debugging. Suggestions?

    Yeah, this isn't good. On i586 I was able to do a clean update, but KDM won't start. Thanks to YaST I can change the /etc/sysconfig displaymanager setting to "xdm" and log into my graphical desktop. I checked for updates, though, and there aren't any. So I don't know what to do now.

    This update is definitely no good, stay away for now.

    Yeah, I had that too.
    The problem is that kdm as started now as user "kdm" (instead of "root"), and has insufficient permissions for some directories.
    Until this is fixed you can workaround the problem by editing the file /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc: search for the line
    Code:
    GreeterUID=kdm
    and put a '#' character in front of it. (or just delete the whole line)
    After that, kdm should start up fine again (with "root" permissions)...

    Thanks a lot for the tip!
