Thread: Yast has just deleted my KDE

    Default Yast has just deleted my KDE

    All I did was adding qt latest repository, then kde extras for installing kio-gdrive. It has installed kio-gdrive, but removed the whole freaking Opensuse kde pattern, what the actual ****

    that QT repository is not compatible with plasma 5 included with Leap 42.2
    If you want to use that QT repo you also need to add the frameworks 5 repo and install plasma 5 from there
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:KDE_repo...5_.26_Plasma_5

    but unless you have a real need for the latest qt or frameworks 5 you should probably stick with the standard leap 42.2 repos

    When ever I use YAST to install anything a pop up's tell me what it's going to do. Some times one offers a break dependencies etc.. If you select that one it will do exactly what it says and that will result in whatever is broken not working any more. Qt is pretty fundamental and currently changing a lot so earlier frameworks can't really be expected to work with it. As far as I am aware YAST has done what you agreed to do by selecting an option or not and then telling it to go ahead.

    What you should have done if your running leap 42.2 is use this search here and selected unsupported if there isn't a supported version.

    https://software.opensuse.org/packag...erm=kio-gdrive

    Not without some risks and I always click on the repo and make sure it really did build correctly. What some one will have done in this case is patch the latest code to make it run on 42.2.

    There can be cases where YAST still complains about dependencies when this search is used. Then it's a case of finding them from the same source. Risk increases and you had best make sure that you only have the standard repo's available - don't even leave pacman active.

    The other alternative is run tumbleweed where it probably is available - latest stuff as it comes from upstream. So called cutting edge. Leap 42.2 is intended to be a far more stable release. Opensuse is no different to many other distro's in this respect.

    To complete the above answers, your title is trial to hide that it is you that did it, not YaST. Like all computer software, it will do what you ask, not what you think you ask.

    The way you started this thread is very likely to shy away people that otherwise could help you.

    Thank you for the answer, probably I've gotta move to Tumbleweed version of Opensuse again, I have swtiched it to Leap once because kernel update broke the hard way of installing Nvidia graphics driver. And now I've encountered this kio-gdrive thing in Leap

    Thank you for the answer, probably I've gotta move to Tumbleweed version
    of Opensuse again, I have swtiched it to Leap once because kernel update
    broke the hard way of installing Nvidia graphics driver. And now I've
    encountered this kio-gdrive thing in Leap


    Hi
    Probably not a wise thing to do since nvidia is prone to breaking with
    later kernels. If using the hard way, then you need to keep across
    the patches that come out and patch the driver before running/updating.

    Perhaps a bug report if the tool your wanting in Leap 42.2 isn't
    working or not available.

    I'm using the nvidia driver on 42.2. No problem. In yast repositories select community repositories and then add nvidia's own repo to you list. Then install it - which one depends on your card. Unless it's very very ancient the one with a 4 on the end is likely to be the one to use. You can leave this repo enabled. I had an update from it a couple of days ago.

    You may then find that VLC doesn't work any more. Search VLC in software management, un install the current one also selecting the clean up option. Then add pacman as above and search for VLC. Install the V3 beta version that comes up and it's codecs. Once that is done I'd personally disable pacman and also set it to not refresh.

    Also when you install anything from the software search and yast asks about retaining the repo select no. Just use this facility if you want to upgrade some package or the other. Often there will be several development repo versions so if one doesn't work simply uninstall using clean up again and try another. Items that are popular seldom have problems which ever repo they are from.

    The general message re repo's is just leave the standard ones enabled and refreshed. Your unlikely to have any problems if you do that. Software update might complain about wanting to update a version that is lower than the one you have installed. I had that happen with a latest version of firefox installed from them rather than a repo. A new problem that I have only ever had happen on leap but it was easily fixed with yast software management. Currently using the supported version of firefox isn't a problem so I didn't really need the latest. I have in the past as certain web pages didn't display correctly.
