Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am aware of the risks associated with new updates, but I have a habit of trying to keep all packages (the ones I use) up to date. The updates are quite frequent on the kde supplemetary mirror, so I am not too worried about it, besides, everything else is working pretty much alright. Moreover, I have gnome as a backup.
As for the suse version and updates, I started with 9.2 and now I am using 9.3 and I would have to say that 9.3 was much better in many ways particularly when it comes to updates.
Originally posted by berbae abisko00 can you give examples of problems you encountered when upgrading KDE in SuSE 9.1?
I think of upgrading to KDE 3.4.2 now that I have switched from XFree86 to xorg-x11
But what you say worry me somewhat.
Can you tell the major issues you encountered please?
Don't be too worried, I should have been more specific. I get a lot of dependency trouble because I still use XFree86. The KDE weather applet is not working properly (useless anyway, I know) and the khelpcenter stopped working with the previous update already (but there is a semi-fix posted somewhere in this forum). Mozilla and Firefox stopped working after the last update, but that came from the gnome updates. Anyway, this is fixed now as well. So most of the trouble consists of solving dependency problems.
BTW, I have a question that fits quite well in this thread: does anybody know if there are repositories of previous KDE versions for SUSE? For example if I would like to downgrade to the previous KDE version in case of troubles, but did not keep the rpm files on my system.
I've tried the German fix you speak of. When I do that, the icons are really pixalated (at 1024x768) an they are Gnome Icons, not KDE. So far, I've manually rebuilt most of the icons (they are in /usr/share/pixmaps), but some games icons cannot be found....Just a heads up to anyone....
