Yes, I think that's right.


Best of luck.

do you have to set some kind of parameter so that urpmi knows what im trying to update?

still getting used to the way to console works

urpmi --auto-select
on its own updates all packages you have installed (just like mandriva update does)

urpmi kdebase --auto-select
updates kdebase and all it requires

--auto-select - automatically select packages to upgrade the system.

I found it installed other stuff too, off the cdroms. If what you say is true, then kde 3.5 has more deps than the last version.

certainly doesnt surprise me every version of KDE adds new features that lets you access other programs
which may not have already been installed

eg 3.3 didnt support browsing audiocd's
kde 3.4+ however supports it in konqueror and most KDE programs such as amarok

audiocd:///

shows a variety of mp3 wav ogg flac and cda files allowing you to insert cd copy it to hard drive seamlessly.
Kde suddenly needed cdparanoa lame ogg vorbis etc

I see. That explains what I thought to be odd. Good one.

Thanks for that.

you need to be running that command as root. type "su" and enter the password set to your root and you should be able to run that urpmi command.
