...and what about the version? Do you point to the matching version? Otherwise try a different mirror (don't forget to adjust the directory path). I really can't understand why this is not working.

Yes I've checked the version. I've tryed every mirror I could find, but it didnt work on any of them.

Seems I'm going to have to reinstall or something, which is a sham cuz I just downloaded all the updates last week.

Ok well I got it "working" now..

It downloaded and installed all the KDE updates. But they are not there. I've restarted the system and all, but everything is still on the old version.

Seems you are an unlucky guy

List all KDE packages with rpm -qa | sort | grep kde and check if the version numbers are correct. Maybe you simply forgot a few.

If you do it the 'manual' way (installing with rpm), you may need to ensure that KDE is not running. Otherwise (using the Yast installation source) it should work from KDE.

Nah I'm giving up for now. I dont have so much time to work around with this, I just want an up to date system that will work without to much trouble.

Going to buy SuSE 9.2 when I get the chance and try it out, maybe that will work better.

Do any of these sources offer an upgrade from XFree86 to X.org?

I'm currently on XFree86 version: 4.3.99.902 as shipped with Suse 9.1 and would like to upgrade, but avoid the time and headache of compiling the source and installing it by hand (I actually do work on Linux!).

SUSE offers a X.Org version for 9.1, but it seems not to be ready for use with the Yast installer. You probably need to download the packages and install them manually.

Good post. I never could get YaST to look at online sources until I read the note is abisko00's post about not including directories in the server entry. Sounds stupid, but it's the little details like this that make learning new software such a pain sometimes.

First, I think you need to go a little deeper in the directory structure.

Example:

Server: ops.tamu.edu (or any other mirror)
Directory: suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_9.2/

What's really strange however, is that I can't get anything beneath the supplementary directory to work either; yet other places work just fine.

So suse/i386/9.2/ works just fine from the same server. I did notice that the index files in the directories that work for me have a .gz extension, while the ones beneath supplementary have no extension. I don't know if this matters or not. Can anyone else check this out?

I'm using Suse 9.2 and yast2-2.10.27-2 if that helps.

Blank Index File

The index file for the directory suse/i386/supplementary/GNOME/update_for_9.1/ only contains one line:

Last updated: Fri May 28 15:43:20 MEST 2004

This seems really strange to me, but I don't know how these things work. Hopefully someone else here has more knowledge on how all this is supposed to work.

Have a look in post#10 of this thread for detailed instructions. In the supplementary folder your path has to end with 'yast-source'. In general, it is always the directory that contains the file 'directory.yast'

Hey.
Great info guys, you helped me heaps!
2 questions:

1. Can anyone please point out what each color means under YOU's package selection (blue/red/black/whatever) ?

2. Where from i update the KDE itself? I'm currently running 3.3.0, and so far i see only programs for KDE, but not the KDE itself.

Cheers

to 1.:
blue: there is a newer version of your installed package available on the FTP server
red: the package that you have installed is newer than the version on the FTP server
black: this is the same version as on the server

to 2.:
KDE consists of a large number of packages. I think you would consider the packages kdebase3 and kdelibs3 as well as qt3 and kde3-i18n as the main kde system. The source is the same as for the KDE applications in the supplementary/KDE folder on any SuSE mirror.
