    Hi,

    open Yast, Software installation. Choose Installation Source and have a look in OpenSuse Update. Do you find this repository? Do you see installed and non installed update packages?

    Greetings

    Michael

    P.S.: Regarding installation of KDE4.2: you have to add following repositories (use this as URL under Adding repositories in Yast):
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt/openSUSE_11.0
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

    First if you have installed libdvdcss from Videolan, disable that repo.

    In a terminal go su

    type:

    zypper ref

    now:

    zypper up

    Of course you can. Open YaST and you will see modules to install/remove and update your software.

    There are two kinds of updates. Security fixes are official updates and you should have some icon in your panel that checks for them and tells you if there are some available.

    Updates from repos, such as KDE:backports, packaman etc. You use those at your own risk. Updating KDE and other software via YaST - openSUSE

    Another note: The repos given above are wrong for your 11.1 installation. If you want to upgrade KDE 4.2, use http://en.opensuse.org/KDE/KDE4 and http://en.opensuse.org/Talk:KDE/KDE4...dating_KDE_4.2

    Blue a certain YES.

    Green a certain ??

    Red = NO

    The rest, you must have added somehow.

    If you want to have updates to kde4 from build service, but remain stable you could add

    KDE4 Build service Stable 4.1.3
    So my final recommendation would be:

    OSS
    NON-OSS
    UPDATES
    Packman
    Mozilla
    Nvidia
    and the kde4 repos above

    **Make sure you have the updater running in your tray if you prefer that kind of method.
