Upgrading to KDE 3.2


Alright, I just downloaded a bunch of KDE 3.2 RPMs.. To upgrade from 3.1, do I just run every single RPM, or what?

if suse manages rpms like redhat, then all you have to do is

rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm


if you get a bunch of dependency errors, correct those first

it may also be a good idea to delete the old rpms of kde if possible

But that is all I need to do, right? Just installing a bunch of RPMs one after another?

>>>disclaimer, i've done this but this may not work for you<<<

first backup your inportant files, then copy $HOME/.kde to $HOME/.kde31, do the same with /root/.kde

install id3lib, gnokii, flac, taglib and libjasper(needed by 3.2). then uninstall kdebase3-suse, k3b, and your kde-devel packages,(to help avoid dependency issues).

put all kde3.2 packages in a directory by themselves, drop to runlevel 3 (type init 3 at a root term) hit f2 to clear the suse splash screen if needed, login as root, cd to the directory where you saved the 3.2 packages, and type rpm -Uvh *.rpm .

install or remove any remaining packages rpm complains about until you get a successful upgrade.

then run SuSEconfig, then ldconfig .

then rm -f /tmp/kde-*

then either type init 5 or reboot

good luck

Even better way to upgrade KDE on SuSE:
1) Backup your files
2) Start SuSE in Failsafe mode
3) cd to directory containing ALL new KDE rpms
4) run yast2 --install *.rpm

Yast would take care to upgrade/install nedeed rpm packages !

just open a term window and cd into the directory containing all the .rpm files you downloaded.

su [enter]
rpm -Uvh *.rpm [enter]

Hello there:
I downloaded the rpms for KDE 3.2 from the kde website and installed them on my machine runnign SuSE 9.0 pro, after I did that I lost many of the things from SuSE such as SuSE watcher and the SuSE plugger. Are there special packages of KDE 3.2 for SuSE ?? I am downloading the rpms from the suse website now, are those the packages I need to install?
Thanks in advance

Yes - for most of the KDE SuSE specific functionality you need to go and download from some of the SuSE mirrors.
I suggest you to download all of the base and devel packages, and for Internationalization and application specific packages to make your own selection.

I'm hunting for the libjasper 1.700.so.1 and just can't find it anywhere. I have also the following dependency error: trm is needed by kdemultimedia-3.2.0-0.fdr.2.rh90

These are the only 2 dependencies I have left (after a full day of searching, you gotta love RPM's), can anybody tell me where to find those last 2?

There is actually an order in which you should install these RPMS

"arts and then kdelibs should be installed before everything else, and kdeaddons last. The other packages can be installed in any arbitrary order."

This the only mention I found about any order, and when I start with just arts, it's dependencies keep on growing, I keep on adding, until all rpm's I already downloaded are in it and I still arrive at the same point.

vbraca,

Your instructions worked for me perfectly! Thank you for that. I am missing some shortcuts to the C & D drives, cdroms etc... on the desktop, but the thing booted at least lol.

That was the easiest way by far!
