Okay, I will report back to you once I upgrade Mandrake 10.2 to KDE 3.4 using Thac's RPM's. I am actually waiting for Mandrake 10.2 RC2 to come out this weekend, THEN I will give it a try. I plan on formatting my Linux hard drive and starting from scratch.

I survived the Great KDE 3.4 upgrade of 2005 and all I got was this lousy tagline.
Mandrake 10.2 RC 1

No, I plan on leaving alone my /home partition. I have done this before when I upgraded from Mandrake 9.1 to Mandrake 9.2. I just had to change my /home permission and everything was okay. I hope this will be the same for Mandrake 10.1 to Mandrake 10.2. Either way, I have an external 250 GB hard drive that I always backup my data so it should be okay either way.

I actually am downloading Mandrake 10.2 RC1 and will try it tonight. Will review and report on it and let you know how the KDE 3.4 upgrade goes. I hope my upgrade will be successful like Sammygirl. Then when Mandrake 10.2 RC2 comes out, I will immediately try that, too!

bad news so far..... I deleted the tach repositories form my macine thinking somehow if I do not have them I'll force rpmdrake to look for other versions of kde...

this approach is not workingat all rpmdrake is using 100% of the cpu and it is not playing nice with me....it could be though that I'm runnign this on a virtual machine but I do not think so....

still going.....the cpu still pegged at a 100%.

Sammygirl: how did you installed mandrake 10.2? upgrade or format your harddrvie and started from scratch?


guys I think that downgrading this mess to kde 3.2 is a very complicated task.....

OPJOSE what are you planning? are you going to wait for 10.2 final oficial to be out or are you going to try to go for the release candidates?

Can you just not URPMI -(?) kdebase-3.4 ???

I don't know what option is the uninstall.

I was thinking maybe uninstall kdebase-3.4, then reinstall kde-3.2 or kde-3.3 or whatever. I'll try this later before I install Mandrake 10.2 RC1

xavier: I wiped out both partitions. a while back, I installed 10.2 beta 2 and for some reason, it did weird shutdown stuff. I had tried reinstalling 10.1 a while back and I couldn't figure out what to do with my /home/ directory with the permissions, so I just started from scratch and sent anything I needed to my gmail account.

Also, when you upgrade, it gives you another option in LILO (I'm on a dual boot with XP and Mandrake), that allows you to boot in 10.1. I'd say just start over. And, when you install KDE 3.4 from thac, if you use easyrpmi, add the cooker repositories. And, then just use urpmi for each package (ie, urpmi kdetoys-3.4.0 urpmi kdepim-3.4.0 etc.) it takes longer, and you have to deal with some dependencies, but it worked well for me.

Hope that helps. I'm off for the night as I am not feeling well.

Good luck!

Samantha

I did something before I started this...



rpm -qa > filelist.txt

This lets me

urpme --auto `rpm -qa | grep thac `

Then after it's done...

urpmi `cat filelist.txt`


The "ultimate" rollback...

I'm in the middle of this now...

yeah....definitely that kills it. I still think there is something else that also kills the kdm....anyway I'm thinking that I'll be reinstalling mdk again but I'll wait until 10.2 has been officially released. let me know the results of your other test...
