upgrade kde 4.6.1


Hi all,

I just installed slackware 13.1 and my KDE is version 4.4.3, I want to upgrade to version 4.6.1 or at least 4.6.0. I have used alien repository and download KDE 4.6.1 but it doesn't work.

Are they any options to upgrade my KDE to 4.6.1 or not?

Thanks in advance...

No, you need slackware current.

Kind regards

i just read now on distrowatch and softpedia. in that case i will wait for the release of slackware 13.37 and see what can i do...thank you....

i will upgrade to kde 4.4.5.....

i am tired of ubuntu, i want a better and stable desktop and this is one of the reasons why i choose slackware..... hope that after removing ubuntu and installing slackware it will be good and wont have any difficulties with drivers or any other softwares which i want to install.
