i would just go with 3.4-even only going to 3.3 you will run into some of the same issues.
posting the dependency errors would be helpfull too.most of the errors are caused by packages that are no longer used,like the old pim package.

this is the actual missing packages

and here are the 3rd part which i am not too sure what to do with (never done a update as big as this before)

the libieee1284 is part of a dependancy fix already
hope this can help you
i can't find the tunepimp.so.1 anywhere i have a newer version but that still does not solve the problem as it is .so.2 instead

If you were wanting a link to the source packages then here is one for your distro:

ftp.oregonstate.edu/pub/kde/stable/3.3.2/src

Or simply grab these:

ftp://ftp.oregonstate.edu/pub/kde/st.../SuSE/ix86/9.1

Hope this helps you out.

It would seem that KDE for 9.1 supplemental is 3.4, so you may want to download the packages from the link provided above and install them in terminal, using root (su), with rpm -Uvh *.rpm, taking out whatever packages you do not need. When a dependency issue arise just install the needed packages with yast or synaptic, try again. There should not be too many.

This method is truly not that hard, and is good for getting to know linux via terminal. The nice thing about this is, if it all goes haywire just YaST it in terminal and replace your KDE, and then try a different method. However, it should go well.

Good luck

Are you sure you need kdemultimedia3-jukebox? I simply didn't install it and I don't miss it yet. If not, you could install KDE 3.4 just like this. Alternatively (I just try this) you could install libtunepimp from source. This seems to be a little more complicted

Hey there netsurf

As far as the runlevels go, I believe that terminal mode is runlevel 3, but some systems could be configured differently. I think debian is runlevel 2 for booting into the login manager. Anyway, if you boot into a login manager, look for the terminal, or while in another gui open a terminal box.

In order to save the output of a program use the >, >>, 2>, or 2>>. For example: rpm -Uvh *.rpm 2>> results >> results. This will save all of the output into a file called results, however if you are looking for just the error output to be saved then just use, rpm -Uvh *.rpm 2>> results. Usually it is easiest to write a shell script. Then, with your favorite text editor, copy the contents and paste them into the message on the messageboard.

I hope this helps you out, and if you need anymore help I will do the best that I can to help you out. This is what I do to use rpm installation, or should I say, once used, because I am now running Ubuntu 5.04, which I must repeat, is VERY nice.

The data, or results, will be located in a file called results.

First remove the kdeaddons3-kontact-3.2.1-44 and kvirc-2.9.9-571. Also, I believe when I installed KDE 3.4, using this method, I used the --nodeps, and even, though not a great idea, use the --force rpm option, if needed. If you get any problems after your install, then remove the conflicting packages.

Hope this helps you out. Good Luck.

Talking SUCCESS

i am now the proud user of 3.3.2
i did not have to use the --force and --nodep just remove the conflictions hopefuly they will have fixed the focus issue i sometime have with firefox :S
last two things i think
where would you have to go for the fixes/features sorted between the versions
is it normal for the control centre utillity to say "3.3.2 level a" or have i got an alpha of 3.3.2 ?
right off to check everything is working ok
thankyou verymuch for your help nice to know that the community is helpful and polite

Question teany problem

the plus side i have more screensavers on the bad side i cannot use them. it seems when i upgraded i broked the screensaver function some do work but they are about 10 in total not sure what makes the significant as there is on that is in open gl aswell as 2d ones very confusing for me i know they all work as the xscreensaver command runs them perfectly with no issues i would hate to have got all this way to discover that this is one that i would have to live with. this is the version installed i hope it will be an easy fix
kdeartwork3-xscreensaver-3.3.2-4.i586.rpm


edit
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
problem is now fixed apparently there was a problem with the package here is the fix i found
Quote:
If you download and install the new kdeartwork3.xscreensaver package in the
KDE 3.3 bundle into SuSE 9.1 the screensaver function breaks. Since this may
be an issue with other distros, I'm posting the workaround here, which is to
create a symlink before installing the package:

# ln -s /usr/X11/lib/xscreensaver /usr/lib/

For those interested in KDXE bug reporting see
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87889

You might spread this bugfix to other lists where people would be interested.
