Help Upgrading to KDE 3.1.2


Is there an easy way to upgrade?

I know that I can use apt. But when I did I got a modified version than what KDE put out.

How can I let each package know where the files they are dependant upon is at?

Is there a certain Order that things should be installed?


Thanks for your assist.

If there is a way to create an install disk please let me know.


Thanks
Voyager

If you want to build it from source (a daunting task), you can get a program called Konstrcut (http://konsole.kde.org/konstruct/) to help you.

It will download the and compile the source for you.

Will this allow me to burn the contents to a CD-R so that I can easily install at any time?


What I ultimately want to do is to be able to insert my CD and install from there.

I know there is a way to do it otherwise the installs would work for RedHat, SuSe etc.

Thanks for the assit though...I will check this out.
