upgrading KDE


Hello, i want to upgrade kde 3.1 to some newer release via aptitude but if i make
"u" i do not
find it among upgradable packages, only among installed ones.
How can i achieve this?

Thankx

If you mean that you want to upgrade kde to the latest version 3.4 you can add this link to your sources.list:

The next update en dist-upgrade will give you KDE 3.4

Thank you, but i think that dist-upgrade makes an upgrade of all the upgradable packages according to my sources.list, now what if i'd like to upgrade only some packages? e.g. kde or other?

A tad more complicate. You need to edit your /etc/apt/preferences and set the alioth source to a high pinning number for all kde* packages.

details here:
http://forum.libranet.com/viewtopic....hlight=kde+3+4

in the preferences section, instead of '*' use 'kd*' and that should do the trick

Note that apt will most likely upgrade a whole bunch of other packages since kde will more than likely require them.

Hi,

I tried this and it upgraded some packages to the 3.4 version but kdebase and kdeartwork are being held back. When I try to install them they produce broken dependancies. I tried apt-get -f install, to no avail. Is there something else needed to upgrade?

Used this source and it worked:

deb http://people.debian.org/~killer/amd64/ ./


....so far.
