KDE 4.2 & Slackpkg


Here's a question I have...

I am running -current and KDE 4.2, but now when i run slackpkg updates it wants to upgrade back to kde3 packages again. How do I stop this from happening?

Do I have to manually blacklist all the kde3 packages? And how do I know which ones to blacklist specifically?

Thanks in advance for any insight...

I blacklisted /slackware/kde in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist
It seems to work fine

I gave "/testing" a higher priority in slackpkg.conf
Code:
# The lines below will set the download priority. 
# Default values: /patches /slackware /extra /pasture /testing
#FIRST=patches
FIRST=testing
#SECOND=slackware
SECOND=patches
#THIRD=extra
THIRD=slackware
#FOURTH=pasture
FOURTH=extra
#FIFTH=testing
FIFTH=pasture
Edit: Looks like this is no longer needed.
KDE3 is gone. KDE4 has been moved from /testing,
and is now an official part of Slackware-current!
