Ok, I am in the middle of the one-click install recommended above.
Illiteracy again in KDE…
“The applications a KDE 4 installation would contain if it would be the default desktop.”
What does this mean? It heads an empty box. There is no colon, so I am not sure if there should be a list following it or not. It sounds like it, but the punctuation is messed up and the absence of a list makes it suspicious. Can’t people communicate in English when using English? Wow…
Ok, rant phase over… continuing with install.
If you continue, the following changes will be made to your system:
Repositories to be added:
Index of /repositories/KDE:/42/openSUSE_11.1 (KDE:42)
Index of /repositories/devel:/tools:/building/openSUSE_11.1 (devel:tools:building)
Index of /update/11.1 (openSUSE:11.1:Update)
You will remain subscribed to these repositories after installation.
Software to be installed:
Using the customize button has no way of getting back out of the customize mode, even with going back and clicking next again. ARGH!
Restarting one-click install.
Beautiful! When I click Next on the second screen I get a warning:
Have you reviewed the changes that will be made to your system?
Malicious packages could damage your system.
]Do not ask me again
Yes / No
My GOSH! So with the default I might get malicious packages installed on my system? :’(
I clicked yes and got another confidence builder.
Import Untrusted GnuPG Key…
meaning that you trust the owner of the key. You should be sure that you can trust the owner and that the key really belongs to that owner before importing it.
What in the world! I do not even know who it is. How can I be sure I can trust them? This is allowing someone access to my system as if they were my good friend. Scary!
Next screen… (I trusted just to get to the next screen, which I am afraid anyone would do):
(nothing below that)
Suddenly, out of the blue - DONE!
The installation has failed. For more information, see the log file at /var/log/YaST2/y2log. Failure stage was: Installing Packages
An error occurred while attempting to install the specified packages. Review the yast2 logs for more information.
Excellent! I wanted to dig through log files and read a mess of output.
