Installing KDE 3.4 rc1 on 9.2


Ok, so I've downloaded all the RPMs from KDE, but have not had success in installing them. I've tried copying them to a directory on my hard drive and showing YAST the source (dependancy errors abound). I don't know if I should go through and install each RPM individually through YAST becuase..well.. that's just boring.

SO... how should I go about this?

I know exactly what you mean... I found myself a while back with the same problem on SuSE 9.0, trying to go up to KDE 3.3.

I downloaded it all, but in the end, I didn't bother installing it - I just waited for SuSE 9.2 to be released, and updated the whole thing. It was just too much hassle to do it manually.

I know that's not what you wanted to hear, but on the bright side, Suse 9.3 is due out pretty soon now, so it's not like you'd have to wait too long to do it that way.

I did the same and it worked fine adding a folder (with the 3.4 updates) as a yast source.

What version of Suse are you using?

Once you have modified YAST installation source, open YAST install remove software.
in the search field enter: kde
mark everything what is installed as an upgrade (with exception of 32-bit libraries if you have 64-bit os)
next do search for qt3
mark for upgrade, check dependencies. Accept. After installation restart KDE. That is all.
I hope that it will help.

I think you guys should wait for couple of days, because the final (stable) 3.4 should be released this week. Release date in kde roadmap was 16th, which is today, although the rc1 had only some minor problems so if you´ve downloaded the files go ahead and update.

I tried the rc1 and only problem was that kdm lost gnome from the start menu.

Try disabling the rest of the sources (packman,dvd,...) , it makes finding the updates more easy.
If you have gnome installed (or xfce...) start that windowsmanager, it safer that way. Go to yast install/remove-section and update every you can find.

OK, the new kde 3.4 packages can now be downloaded from kde.org.
There isn´t any info on the frontpage, but the rpms are now online.
check:
ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.4/SuSE/
or try the mirrors
http://download.kde.org/download.php

I got it from chernabog.cc.vt.edu at a good speed. Most of the other mirrors are starting to get hammered. The news just popped up on OSnews

easiest way to upgrade to kde 3.4.x on Suse 9.2

apt-get update
after it has polled all the locations in /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get dist-upgrade
and voila you have the latest version of kde
any problems can be fixed with -f and/or --fix missing

Instructions and downloads to install apt for your version of suse go to http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/
