Hi - I just updated using zypper about an hour ago, and then KDE 4.2 started behaving strangely; it wouldn’t launch applications. I rebooted, and now on startup I get the message “Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation.” Then I am dropped back into a login screen. I am writing this from gnome as KDE will not run.
Any ideas what broke in the update and how to fix it?
OK, I ran all the upgrades from the KDE 4.2 factory repo using the gnome UI in yast. (It was actually really intuitive - just filter for repo, choose the “upgrades” tab, select all, and hit “upgrade.”)
I actually prefer the gnome UI for yast - is there a way to get it in KDE?
Secondly - why wasn’t zypper giving me these upgrades? The KDE 4.2 factory build service repo is already pinned with a higher priority than the others - can I pin my repos differently so that this won’t happen again?
And by the way, another problem swiftly solved in minutes - thanks once again for your help!
