%3a in the KDE repositories is a replacement the system makes for : in those path names.
Videolan repository is not currently enabled -according to instructions on the oft-referenced 10 steps pages- as it will conflict with packman.
Should I DISable the KDE4 repositories above before adding the repositories mentioned in your reply?
Or should they exist concurrently?
In the days i was using KDE every time i had community repos enabled it gave me problems (Kaffeine, K3B and other). I’d disable these repos. They are not default in openSUSE for a reason and if You want to chase bugs You can freely enable them. Unless there is an update You really need but i wouldn’t be subscribed to them. You can add those repos for KDE 4.2 with no problems though be prepared to remove compiz and some conflicting packages.And if it goes about K3b and Kaffeine better stick with KDE 3 versions (the KDE 4 versions aren’t ready for a public release yet, trust me with that) thouth the idea of having ONLY KDE 4 apps is great stick with KDE 3 versions.
