what i meant by 'starting from scratch' was that i would reinstall suse8 if someone could help my upgrade to KDe3.1.

put them all in one directory, and as root cd /to that directory, and type rpm -Uvh *.rpm. you may have to install a few packages off the suse disc's to satisfy dependancies, but eventually they will install.

thanks for your input. i've installed most of the dependencies from the suse discs except 'c++_compiler'. i tried to run an rpm find on this but came up blank. any suggestions?

it worked like you said! all i had to do was install KDevelop 2.1. thanks for the directions rshaw! one more question though. when i log out, it doesn't go into the X login. it just goes into a black screen so i can log in as another user.

my question is, how do re-enable the X log-in screen?

many thanks!

login in as root and type SuSEconfig, when that finishes type shutdown -r now that will reboot and should bring you back to the gui login screen
