    Seriously Dude, That is such as mess. And for someone who has to ask
    these questions - you have WAY too many repo's.

    Even if you were to follow my recommendation - I suspect you are going
    to have all kinds of issues

    Keep only these

    Mostly as a result of 1-click installs which add repo's automatically.

    Will keep the ones you mentioned (disable the others) & follow the
    procedure above to try & get KDE 4.1.x.

    OK - I miss-understood you

    You want to downgrade to 4.1 - but you consider it an upgrade. I assume
    this is down to problems you have had.

    Therefore to roll back you need the following kde4 not the ones I
    quoted

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://tinyurl.com/72r3ru)

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://tinyurl.com/7gvvud)

    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://tinyurl.com/9xfv63)

    no extra QT needed here

    then just add Packman and the OSS - Update - Non-OSS - Nvidia

    Would like to (if possible) just re-install KDE 4.1.x (not KDE 4.2).
    Not sure what to call it (upgrade/downgrade), since KDE 4.x crashed
    nearly as soon as I logged in (after a new install of openSUSE 11.1),
    there was an error msg saying 'The Plasma Desktop has crashed' and all
    desktop icons disappeared. Tried right-clicking Desktop and manipulating
    few options, but did not help. Now, on trying to Login to KDE 4.x, I get
    an Error Message:
    "Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation".

    KDE 3.5 works fine at the moment, and presently I am using that.

    Ok, will give it a try later tonight.

    Tried doing the re-install procedure twice, but KDE 4.1 does not start-
    there is a box with Error Message "Could not start
    kdeiniit4startup-config".

    Is there a way to remove KDE 4 completely ?
