KDE 3.2.1 Upgrade


I am trying to get KDE 3.2.1 installed on my redhat 9 machine. Anyway I am wondering that when I go to the kde site I am given a choice of what ftp site I want to download from. I chose one then I am taken to a list of applications. This includes games etc. I wondering do I have to download the entire works or can I just download one and install from that, thanks in advance.

well ... oh a hypothetical standpoint you can download only the base and install it and be semi happy

BUT what if say ... your current Kmail (which i imagine is part of networks) needs to access an interface that has been changed? You might find yourself with some flat out incompatibilities, or you might be lucky

You don't need ot upgrade everything, in theory you should be fine if you're running 3.2 atm, and are just upgrading some parts but ideally you want it all up to date.

Also depending on which one you download might need to resolve dependencies, plus on RPM based linux systems the order of installation matters ...

I'd say get them all, except the i18n packages, if you don't compile from source you probably won't need the development packages. but if i was you i'd install all to retain stability, be up to date, and pre-empt the problems of installing subsequent packages, that do require some dependency you sidestepped now.

That seems like a whole lot of downloading is there not a single package that I can get or do I have to get the all manually (sorry about the above post my mistake)

I think u can include testing, i believe that is where 3.2 is to ur apt sources and synapt it, look around the different apt sources to make sure it is testing and one other note, don't upgrade kde while u are logged in to kde. Log in gnome, xfce, icewm, etc.. before u upgrade
