KDE4.2 factory offline untill 4/3

From the KDE mailing list

While we prepare the KDE 4.2.1 packages, we have disabled publishing the built packages on the KDE 4.2 repo and its dependencies:
KDE:KDE4:Factory desktop, KDE:KDE4:Factory:Extra-Apps,
and the KDE:KDE4:Community repos that build vs F.D.

This means you won’t see any updates on those repos for a few days. The planned release date for 4.2.1 is March 4 2009.

Does this have any effect on the Qt45 repo?

The best answer is go to that web KDE Community Forums , ask them directly and I`m just saying nicely way to you.
They can tell you because the build KDE.

Good luck;)



Has 4.2.1 been released yet? Where do I find that info?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Schedules/KDE4/4.2 Release Schedule - KDE TechBase

Yes installing as i type :smiley:


From the opensuse factory repo’s? I don’t see it there?

Take a look here:
. Installing right now too

In Qt45 packages now have 4.5 numbering, sould be final. Will keep you all posted

I see you quote QT 45. I have been using 44

How about you, are you on 44 or 45?
I see your sig changed to 4.2.1;)

I’m gettin’ lots of time outs. I’ll have to run update later,

No qt here

After the next online-update you do not need any Qt repo for 11.1 + KDE 4.2
KDE/Repositories - openSUSE


@Geoffro - Thanks. So are you saying neither is needed.

Anyway. My updates finished, had to run a second time to pick up about 5 packages. But all seems really nice.

Took a look in software-installer, as well as repos: I see packages in Qt and Qt45 are resp 4.5…43 and 4.5…44, anyway 4.5 packages. On my laptop the overall performance has increased, and not just a bit.

Performance is wonderful, smooth running desktop. Better and better

ah, it works now, just had to reboot first.

I’ve a question:

Why is this updated:
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1

and this not:
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_Factory

What’s the difference?

Not me it was a quote from the link i gave


The second you quote is used I think in the development version of openSUSE (to be 11.2)

I’m thoroughly confused, I want to install the KDE 4.2.1 desktop, can someone tell me how to do it please?

I currently have only KDE 3.5 on my system, and would appreciate a simple 1-click solution.

Thanks :slight_smile:

I would not do oneclick myself

add the repo’s

Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1

Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.1

Then check kde4desktop and base in yast Software Management - Patterns
Don’t apply yet

Now filter by repo and go to the new desktopkde4 repo
and do update all in this list unconditionally

check the other two, but there is probably nothing in there yet.
