Konstruct


So I'm using Slackware 10 and I'm stuck with KDE 3.2
I want to upgrade to the newest stable version (which I believe to be 3.3.2, it's not really important to this post)
I downloaded the konstruct tar and my questions is this....
what do I do with it.
I extracted it, now I'm lost.
I looked at the readme, doesn't really help me.

make sure you "upgradepkg" and not "installpkg"

so I download every tgz from the site and install them one by one?
do I have to be in runlevel 3 to remove the original KDE packages?

yeah, jump down to runlevel 3 ( it's not absolutely neccesary, but you would technically have problems because part of 3.2 will still be in ram)

download the tgz's into a separate directory ( like /home/<you>/kdepackages or something similar)

cd to the directory where the packages are, then (as root):

upgradepkg * --install-new

make sure and run (as root) ldconfig after the packages are upgraded/installed to cache the new libs.
