KDE 4.1.1, Factory and problems...

Well, one problem really. I’ve been using the factory repo to keep KDE 4 up-to-date almost since I installed OpenSuse 11 with no problems, but for a few days I’ve received this:

“nothing provides kdebase4-runtime >= 4.1.1 needed by kde4-amarok-1.90-3.11.i586”

when trying to update kde4 components. Anyone else get the same thing or is it just my system?

Some updates in the community repo are bringing errors for me
I don’t have kde4 amarok installed

Just wait it out, update what you can, leave the rest

Until, I guess, we get 4.1.1 in kdebase

What I’ve had to do (again this morning) to fix it, is to disable
the community repo, then refresh and update, then try to re-enable
the community repo.

[Something between community and factory becomes incompatible.
In the past, I’ve had to remove stuff from community (e.g. plasmoids)
and re-install them later.]

Same problem here with packages of KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0

Some oversight: Factory:/Extra-Apps should have been disabled from publication at same time than Factory:/Desktop. This error will be gone with the KDE 4.1.1 release on Wednesday.

Could you point us towards a page that lists(post Wednesday)which groups of Repositories should be enabled to remain “in-step”, as like others in this thread I too have been stumped as were to find this key piece of code.


factory desktop 4.1.1
should be
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0

Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0

community addons
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0

but I could be wrong
I’m using these at the moment and can’t update everything in community
some have probs with extras too

There is a kdebase4-runtime = 4.1.63 in the factory unstable repros; however, it breaks far more packages than it fixes ATM. My recommendation is to wait until it’s ready. Won’t be too long I would bet;)

I hope so (and I would guess it’s fixed when 4.1.1 is officially released), since I’m not brave enough to use the unstable repos…

At the moment, it’s mostly a minor annoyance but at least it wasn’t just me that had the problem…

Thanks to everyone who chimed in :slight_smile:

KDE 4.1.1 is in the Factory repo now.
