Redhat 8.0 and KDE3.1


Hmm... I am not sure if someone has asked this questions before... but here it goes.

I have redhat 8.0 installed along with KDE3.0.

Recently I have updated to KDE3.1 via apt-get

However, whenever I run up2date now, I will get some update package which is from KDE3.0.3 I think. (ex. korn 3.0.3 etc.)

So should I trust up2date and install those packages?

or whatever I got via apt-get is more up2date?

Is there anyway that I can get rid of those packages when I run up2date?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

up2date only looks at the RedHat servers for it's list of packages. It sees you have KDE installed, but not the version it knows as the highest version, so it says you need to update them. If you do, you'll go back to the original version of KDE RH8 installed.

I don't know if there's a way to have up2date ignore them. You can tell the app in the taskbar to ignore them, but up2date might still report them when you run it.

If you have apt running, you don't really need to run up2date. Once the people running the apt servers get the new update put out by RH, they put them on their servers, and apt will get them. All you need to do is run...

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade


Run it whenever the taskbar notification app tells you there's a new update from RedHat, and you should get them. I've only seen a couple that haven't been on the apt servers within a day or so.

Thx for your reply!

But what about other non-KDE specific application?

does apt-get update those applications for me as well?

As long as you have the freshrpms server in the /etc/apt/sources.list, it will update anything that RedHat puts out. Since the apt package lists on the servers know about the newer versions of KDE, it won't try to downgrade you to 3.0.

Check the official web-site at freshrpms.net/apt/ if you need a better sources.list.
