Repo for only latest *stable* version of KDE for openSUSE 11.3?


I am currently enjoying the current stable KDE 4.5.0 on openSUSE 11.3 thanks to the Index of /repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Factory/openSUSE_11.3 repo. However, I realized that when KDE 4.5.1 development starts, or maybe when 4.6.0 development starts, that this repo will also provide those dev version, correct? So how can I keep up to date with the current STABLE release of KDE on openSUSE 11.3 without using dev releases?

Thanks a lot!

Remove Factory
Add this: Index of /repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Stable/openSUSE_11.3

Do this on it

Hmmm, I don’t think so. The latest official stable release of KDE is 4.5.0.
Index of /repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Stable/openSUSE_11.3 provides KDE 4.4.4.

You need to not update KDE then. You see AFAIK there will be no maintained kde4.5 repo.
There is no problem doing that. Just set your system to install only security patches. That will hold your system as it is.

Thanks for the reply caf4926!

So let’s suppose that I install openSUSE a few months from now and I want to update to the latest stable KDE 4.5.2 or whatever is current at that time. It appears that version will never be available, but rather some dev version? I currently am lucky to have upgraded my KDE immediately after 4.5.0 was released, so I currently have it on my system. But what about a new install that wasn’t timed like that?

Thanks for the help with this.

11.3 comes with 4.4
That will not change thru the life of 11.3
You can however do several things to perhaps achieve what you want

Found it

Well pull out all the stops here at openSUSE :wink:

Hey, thanks very much caf4926 for searching! This repo is for 4.4.5 though… Although I imagine with time he’ll update it to 4.5.x? Let’s hope so.

I do appreciate the help sir!

Yeah, sorry. In haste I didn’t notice. I was trawling thru old Mailing List messages for that.

Anyway. I think you have some options at least.

Perhaps you are more familiar with Updates feeding from Upstream?

If it’s of any interest to you. I am already using 4.6 and experience very good results with it, that’s in a 11.4 Factory install.

That’s good to hear that the Factory has been relatively stable for you. I know that openSUSE 11.3 will always officially use KDE 4.4.4, but I guess what I was looking for was something like a “KDE Backports” repo, something similar to the Kubuntu PPA that offers all the 4.x.y point releases for the currently stable Kubuntu.

So at what point will the …/Factory/openSUSE_11.3/ repo stop providing 4.5.x releases and switch to 4.6-dev releases?

I would have thought then, that this would stop the gap until you can move on to the next stage

It doesn’t update KDE, but it does most of the applications.
