    Cloddy - On 12.3/KDE 4.12.0, at least one text file opened "readable" with Kwrite. Black text on white. I didn't do much with it.

    Henk - Understand what you are looking for/would like to see; me too. However, I can't begin to even scope the dimensions of a Test matrix for something as broad as KDE given the wide range of Applications, Languages and other variables.
    So Knurpht understood pretty well, perhaps a more correct statement on my part would have been "..fought thru a few dependency/version issues, made what appeared to be the right selections to preserve the system functionality I have use so far...".
    Alas, I am fairly certain I won't have touched 30% of the functionality of KDE 4.12.x when KDE 5 comes along.
    But I do like what I use, and congratulate the folks who keep making it better.

    For me not all because a lot of packages have to be downgraded
    (*webkit*, libqt4*, etc.) because they be not more in the kde*412
    repos but in oss/update or packages as at example phonon-backend-vlc
    get removed.

    Not bad and at the moment the gui (and the started apps) looks okay but
    i won't say an "all fine" for it
    Well, I hope you do know that this is not an officially supported repo. It's merely there so that openSUSE users can try the latest KDE version.

    And those packages have to be downgraded because you didn't have the official versions installed in the first place. (btw. a change from libqt4-4.8.5-xx to libqt-4.8.5-yyy f.e. is not really a downgrade, the packages just have a different build number because they are from a different repo).

    If there are real packaging problems, you should report them at http://bugzilla.novell.com/ of course...

    In the 4.11 repo there is libqt4-4.8.5-333.1.src.rpm and in the 4.12
    repo there is nothing of libqt4. Therefore you have to step back to the
    versions from the oss repo which stay by 4.8.4. As i said this is
    nothing bad and i'm sure there is a reason for this but you habe to
    handle this, that's all and i suggest only to check your system for
    orphaned packages.

    Again, for me all is okay and tomorrow the last older package
    "kdebase4-session" is getting replaced by the new one and now i have no
    orphaned packages but i checked it with "zypper se -si | grep 'System'".

    I successfully updated to KDE 4.12 via YaST last night on an openSUSE 13.1 system with kernel 3.12.5 and the latest stable Xorg w/Mesa 10.0.1.

    Everything was working fine, except that it initially refused to support OpenGL compositing, instead forcing it back to XRender even after a reboot. Then I tried executing:
    Code:
    KWIN_COMPOSE=O2 kwin --graphicssystem raster --replace &
    which didn't initially seem to fix anything, but it's working completely now. No problems, and it feels fast & smooth.

    It's in the standard repo. The package name is libkgapi2-2.

    But why are you looking for it? It should be installed automatically by YaST/zypper...

    In the 4.11 repo there is libqt4-4.8.5-333.1.src.rpm and in the 4.12
    repo there is nothing of libqt4. Therefore you have to step back to the
    versions from the oss repo which stay by 4.8.4. As i said this is
    nothing bad and i'm sure there is a reason for this but you habe to
    handle this, that's all and i suggest only to check your system for

    Well, the KR4xx repos only contain libraries that are needed to compile the corresponding KDE version and are not included in the standard distro.
    libqt4 is only in the KR411 repo because the repo is available for 12.2 as well, which contained a too old libqt4 version.
    But I'm sure the libqt4-4.8.4 in 12.3 contains at least some of the bugfixes of libqt4-4.8.5, so you don't really need the newer version.
    If you have a problem with libqt4-4.8.4 you should report it as well, then _all_ users could profit from an online update...

    And 13.1 includes libqt4-4.8.5 anyway.

    As i said before i habe no problems with the libs from oss instead of
    the former kde411 repo on 2 pc and one laptop. My only little problem
    was to think for checking this packages und this has nothing to do with
    the online update Thank for the other infos.

    After all, I don't update to feel relieved, if everything works again. To me the general idea seems more, to update to have an improved functionality. And regarding this aspect: what was improved in comparison to 4.11.4? And yes, I read the press release.

    What i have understand is that if you use at example kate than you
    will see new features but the gui is frozen so there won't be nothing
    else than cleaning bugs.

    From my view i would even use the version from the update repo or the
    latest from kde.org which stays at the moment in kde412 but not one
    version between them both. 4.11.4 and 4.12 seems stable in the same
    way for me so why not using the newest one
