Can I load KDE 3.2 over KDE 3.1 on Mandrake 9.2 as an "update"


Does anybody know if I can update KDE 3.1 to 3.2 - I have a copy of this on a Magazine DVD but looking on the KDE site there doesn't seem to be an "rpm" or tar for Mandrake 3.2.

Yes, you can get the RPMs in the Cooker directory. I updated my Mandrake 9.2 KDE to version 3.2. Best way to do it is to add Cooker to your sources in Source Manager, then go to Install Packages and select KDE 3.2. This way it finds and downloads all of the dependencies for you.
