I’m using openSUSE 11.3 and yesterday I upgraded to KDE 4.5 from the KDE 4.5 stable repo. But after upgrading I faced some freeze/lock-up glitches which weren’t there before. For example whenever I change the color scheme or style and press apply, the screen freezes although the mouse still moves around. I have to forcefully shut down to recover.
So, I am thinking of downgrading to KDE 4.4. How do I go about doing that?
zypper dup affects the whole system. I’m not saying you are wrong, far from it. But knowing there are issues out there on various fronts, including a kernel update, just working on the kde repo is safer IMO
dup will also potentially break some multi-media away from packman
No one said this so far: You have an awful lot of repos, about the appropriate number to guarantee trouble ;). AFAICS that’s where the reason lies for wanting to downgrade from KDE4 4.5. I even think that downgrading KDE4 is not a solution to whatever you’re trying to achieve. But…all this IMHO.
Yes I also felt the number of repos is just too much. Guess I went all out with the community repositories . But the problem I mentioned is a bug affecting all i945GM+KDE45 users. AFAIK a fix is in the works. Till everything gets settled I felt like I should just stick to KDE44.
