opensuse-factory] tumbleweed testing for KDE 4.6
I’ve got it all building finally, and it seems to work for me, with the
one exception of there not being any konqueror-plugins-lang package
being generated by anything in the KDE:Release:46 repo, so you can’t
update the konqueror-plugins package.
I’d appreciate some testers if at all possible before I push it to the
main Tumbleweed repository.
The repo is at:
Please test and let me know if it works or not for you.
You would be helping if you trialled the upgrade and reported your results to the mailing list (or if you’re not list friendly, put your experiences in this thread). How to run/test the upgrade is in the next post. C’mon guys, be adventurous.
Called it KDE_TW
Disabled all other repos except this test repo and Tumbleweed
zypper dup --from KDE_TW
you’ll get this dependency message:
Problem: konqueror-plugins-lang-4.3.1-11.14.2.noarch requires konqueror-plugins = 4.3.1, but this requirement cannot be provided
deleted providers: konqueror-plugins-4.3.1-11.14.2.x86_64
Solution 1: deinstallation of konqueror-plugins-lang-4.3.1-11.14.2.noarch
Solution 2: keep obsolete konqueror-plugins-4.3.1-11.14.2.x86_64
Solution 3: break konqueror-plugins-lang by ignoring some of its dependencies
I selected option 2 to keep (i.e. to not update) the Konqueror plugins
The upgrade went completely smoothly. Afterwards the DE was in disarray due to old KDE programs running so I rebooted. At the prompt I had to select the session to be KDE (plasma) and logged on easily. So far the KDE version (4.6.2 r1) is running very nicely.

there is a good clue for the bug hunters…and, i think more than one
is seeking the answer to the “login screen again” bug…
on your other rock (re tact): rebooting is an old habit and hard to
break, a recognition of fact which should not cause anyone to get their
and, with this post i see that more and more rebooting may come to be
needed here also…sigh.

Q: Why do you upgrade?
A: Because the Gecko is always greener on the other side!

I would not use KPackagekit with Tumbleweed because I feel a finer grained scrutiny is needed when updating Tumbleweed (just a personal opinion). I usually run “zypper dup -D etc” and if I see anything out of the ordinary with the proposal that zypper_dup makes, I switch to the Yast GUI and have a good look.

yes…there are several threads in install/boot/login where folks have
faced the problem/symptom of logging in (on the green screen) and
moments later being presented with a new demand for log in…sometimes
it is a terminal login, sometimes another green screen log in…
i’ve not yet seen “the solution” to what i called (in my previous post)
“the ‘login screen again’ bug”…
the fact that you ‘fixed’ it with a reboot, while logout-login didn’t
might give the bug hunters a new place to look for a clue to fix.
