Upgrading to KDE 3.1.3


Hello again. Just a tiny question... I've downloaded RPMs for the KDE 3.1.3 and I'd like to install them, but I'm not sure how. I currently have KDE 3.1, with which I am currently using. How should I upgrade it, what command shall I use (rpm -Uhv *)?

Also, can I do it through KDE or is it best to do it from a different environment? Will my current setting be saved etc. etc.

Basically if you can guide me through the installation process I'll be more than greatful

Thanks in advance.

Well all I did with Suse 8,2 was logged inas root at init 3 and then did ' rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force *.rpm ' . then rebooted and everything worked fine, I ahve done this on Suse 8.1 and 8.2 and never had aproblem but I have been advised it's not the recommended way but it worked for me.
