it can all be done with one command.

shut down X.
cd to the directory where the kde-packages are, and become root.
then use : "upgradepkg --install-new *.tgz"

(this will upgrade all Slackware-packages that are in the directory)

then restart X, and you have the new kde.

Yes that is 1 method meaning ofcourse you already have the Slackware KDE packages downloaded, or you can use swaret and it checks if your dependencies are right, automatically download whatever package you may want (upgrade or new install). There's even a GUI for swaret called QtSwaret. Here you go with the links:Swaret and QtSwaret and in addition you might download SPI (SPI is a command line tool which gives you informations and characteristics of Slackware packages , installed or not, in your system.). After installing these 1(2)(3) packages using installpkg package-name.tgz edit the /etc/swaret.conf.new file and when you finish editing it save it as /etc/swaret.conf (without the .new) - remember this is pretty important. I will include my swaret.conf here so you can have an ideea. This is my config, you might not want it exactly like this, so please read carefully what it says in the swaret.conf file.

You should choose as VERSION=current too because that's where KDE 3.5.2 is slackware-10.2 runs 3.4.2 next the ROOT= option, as you may see I have a .ro (ROMANIA) ftp server from where I take my packages, you should choose one from your country or closest to you. The rest is pretty OK but feel free to modify it, you may want to edit the NIC= option if your not connected thru ethernet card and use something like ppp0 or wichever protocol suits your connection.
After configuration is made, exit the text editor and don't forget to save the file as swaret.conf now. For the rest you should read swaret --help or qtswaret --help. For KDE and X updatings it is better you should use the command line swaret and have your X server shutdown because QtSwaret only runs in GUI mode and if so you might get errors, also check KDE 3.5.2 requirements because you might have to update some other packages too before upgrading KDE (one of that packages might be the X server) and if something is still unclear feel free to ask again, you will get an answer from me at least for sure. Good luck.

well...here's a mirror.

ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/slackware/

but i see you're running Slack-10.1 ?
i think you'll need some more updates for kde-3.5 to run.
maybe upgrade to Slack-10.2 ?

Ok then I'll explain it this way. I'll give you a download mirror from my home country, hope you get at least a decent transfer rate. Go to ftp://ftp.gts.lug.ro/slackware/slack...nt/slackware/x first and download all the packages in there (you can only download the .tgz packages) then go to ftp://ftp.gts.lug.ro/slackware/slack.../slackware/kde and download all or wich packages you want (but I suggest you at least get kdeaddons, kdeadmin, kdebase, kdebindings, kdelibs, kdemultimedia, kdenetwork + whatever you may need). After downloading them (all packages in the same directory) kill the X server ( meaning Log Out... from KDE and stay in command line), cd to the directory you have your packages downloaded and type: installpkg *.tgz and remember you must do this as root. As I said, beside X you might need to update a few more packages for KDE 3.5.2 to work, but I can't tell you wich ones because I did a full update to my system using swaret and everything just worked out fine from the start. So if someone who knows exactly what packages need to be upgraded before KDE and X post them. Hope this is easy enough explained and work for you. Good luck and don't give up you'll get it finally... that's the beauty of it .

Look, go to one of this links:

ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dist...ent/slackware/

ftp://ftp.gts.lug.ro/slackware/slack...rent/slackware

ftp://ftp.evolva.ro/slackware/slackw...rent/slackware

You will see in all of them the exact thing. Choose one link download the X and KDE directory from there and use what I've said earlier to install them. Btw, where are you from, what country ?

Don't forget the files from X directory, and if I find out if you need any other packages to upgrade I'll post them to you.
Don't apologize for your english, that's not why I asked you... I tought you might be from Romania so I can explain better.

I must warn you that you have to upgrade to slack-current. KDE doesn't even work with 10.2 I think it has some problems with the glibc library used to compile it for both packs. in KDE's site and official slack packs.
