Need help installing new kde RPM


I need to know how to install a new KDE RPM. I am at the site now, but don't know which of the long list of RPM packets to download. My current KDE version is 3.1.4. I want to update to 3.3.2.
Here is what they have listed. Do I need to install them all? Isn't there a single file available with all the goodies??

You want to install the top level 'meta' packages. At a bare minimum you need:

kdelibs3-3.3.2-5.i586.rpm
kdebase3-3.3.2-7.i586.rpm
arts-1.3.1-3.i586.rpm

or kde won't work. After these are installed you can also install:
kdeutils3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm
kdepim3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm
kdetoys3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm
kdenetwork3-3.3.2-7.i586.rpm
kdemultimedia3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm
kdegraphics3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm
kdeedu3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm
kdegames3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm
kdeartwork3-3.3.2-4.i586.rpm
kdeaccessibility3-3.3.2-3.i586.rpm

and any other extras you desire...

Hmmm....Wow, that's quite a few. Extras? I love Extras! I guess I'm going to be busy for quite some time. Why can't they just put it into one package as an option? During the installation, allow people to opt out of certain features.

Thanks for responding. Wish me luck, because if I succeed, it won't be anything but.

Because then you would need to download ~150MB RPM file. No one wants that!! Also I am not sure if this functionality is built into RPM package manager.

Some distros do allow this however, for instance I use gentoo, and instead of installing each one at a time manually I can "emerge kde" and it will install all the major packages for me one at a time automatically.

I am not sure if there is something like this for RPM...

Well now, "emerge", that sounds nice. I'm using Suse Pro 9. I think I have a Gentoo disk somewhere. It's not that I'm particularly lazy, I just have a limited amount of time I can dedicate to learning a new system, such as Linux. It would be nice if the installs were point-n-click, yet with the ability to "Power Use" such as many "True" Linux users seem to do.

I want that! I'm not on dialup, and HDD storage is cheap!

I've been building KDE from source code for over two years now, so it's old hat.
It's not the particular file, it's which package. I just used the files I did because you provided them...so it stands to reason those are the files available to you.

There is a better explanation of what is required and what each package contains here:
