    Default can i really install kde-4.2.0 /4.3.0 in suse 11


    i read the notes before downloading the livecd iso and saw repository
    for kde-4.2.0 and 4.3
    i was hoping this cd will have 4.1.2
    how do i go about upgrading to kde-4.2 or 3

    by the way i would like to install kde-3.5.10 if possible.
    any suggestions for me.?
    thanks in advance.

    Hi, I cannot remember what version KDE is on 11, but to upgrade to 4.2
    simply add the following repositories

    'Index of
    /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_UNSTABLE_Desktop'
    (http://tinyurl.com/62mvwm)

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/UNSTABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/6asjod)

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/UNSTABLE:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/57d8rn)

    To add 3.5 you will need the following repositories

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.0/)

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/Community/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/6xx5xy)

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/Backports/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/5fajde)

    Just open up Yast, go to software repositories, and add them in there.
    Then do an update, and it will update your KDE 4 to 4.2. I think then
    go into software Mangerment, and then add 3.5 in there.

    The advice given above is fine. Just be aware that 4.2 unstable is just
    that, unstable. Though I am using it now and it's pretty darn good. The
    Copy function in Dolphin is not working. But it's working much quicker
    and Looks better now too.

    Upgrading can be tricky and you will need to use the update all
    unconditionally function in software management and may need to remove
    power devil and one or two other packages.

    As for kde3. You might want to be careful adding too many repo's,
    Backports in particular may conflict with the likes of Packman. It's
    fine if you really know what you are doing.!!

    are you copying and pasting the link, if so it is missing out a lot of
    the link, you will need to right click on them and select copy link
    location.

    I would really like to install the very latest KDE 4.x (4.3 maybe) in a
    VirtualBox VM; what would be the best distro to install for this
    purpose? IE, all I want is the most bleeding edge KDE 4 I can have, so
    that I can see as close as possible to what the KDE devs are running,
    whether it be openSUSE, Kubuntu, or Slackware (hee, hee). Any
    suggestions?
