Yast2 software update on 8.2? Bring in latest KDE 3.3.1 updates


Hi there,
I wonder what I'm doing wrong.

I have updated my SuSE 8.2 with KDE 3.3 and later with 3.3.1 "relatively" successful, using Yast2, adding the ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_8.2/base/yast-source as an additional source.

Then I try to install software and it worked for the first time. However, I have a hard time getting subsequent updates.

For example, currently the qt3 lib is on the server as version 3.3.3-31 (from 11/12/04). However, Yast claims the version installed on my machine is 3.3.3-24 and the version available should be 3.3.3-15 (from 10/07/04)

What am I doing wrong?

I was able to get around this, when I upgraded from 3.3.0 to 3.3.1 by disabling ftp.suse.com and adding another mirror to the list. However, disabling or enabling does not work this time.

Help from an Yast2 expert appreciated.

K<o>

No expert am afraid!

Go into yast / click onto installation source / then clcik on to the ftp souce and choose refresh. Then try again to update.

Thanks dth1,
for your reply. Unfortunately I do have SuSE 8.2 and there I can't find anything that is called "Refresh". No button, no context menu, etc.

I'm using Yast2 from the Control Center, but I assume this does not make the difference.

Thanks dht1,
I appreciate your help.

However, I hate to report, that I don't have an "edit" button in Yast2 under SuSE 8.2. I can see it on my 9.1 installation though. But there, I don't have the issue in the first place.

Anybody else an idea?

Thanks

partial "solution"

Hi all,
Just wanted to report, that I found a partial solution.

If I add a new source for the KDE supplemental, then I'm able to upgrade to the latest additions.

So lets hope I'm not running out of mirrors, anytime soon.

K<o>
