Question about S.u.S.E. 6.0 Upgrade and KDE

Post by Chan, Siu-Ke » Tue, 23 Feb 1999 04:00:00



Would anybody help me how to upgrade from my current S.u.S.E. 5.3 to 6.0 and
where can I download the upgrade?

The second question is about my current KDE (version 1.0 beta) provided in
the S.u.S.E. 5.3. The updated version of KDE should be 1.1. Would anybody
help me how to upgrade from my current KDE version 1.0 beta to version 1.1
and where can I download the upgrade?


Thanks!

Chan, Siu-Kei

Hi,

If you buy the CD of SuSE, then the YAST installer allows you to upgrade your
version of SuSE. It should be a pretty painless job, as it only updates the
programs that need updating.

It comes with KDE 1.0 which is much better than 1.0 (Beta)

For 1.1, go to www.kde.org and access their FTP site from there. Details of
upgrading is given there.

First get and install SuSE 6.0. The KDE 1.1 upgrades are at:
ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/1.1/distribution/rpm/SuSE-6.0/binary/

You must uninstall the KDE 1.0 packages first ! That can be done with YaST, too.

Thanks for this. I do have my reservations about YAST, but this sounds
encouraging - I feel a bit more confident about trying it now. (glibc-2 and
all that ...)

I just did an rpm -U, and it worked fine for me.  I've had a few
problems with YaST misbehaving in minor but annoying ways, so I'm
learning how to do things manuallly.

Does SuSE use verison 2.2.x kernel?

SuSE 6.0 uses a 2.0.x kernel, but all utilites are at (or beyond) required
versions to use a 2.2.x kernel.  Therefore you can just drop a 2.2.x
kernel into place and it will work straight away (as I did on the box I am
using now).

Cheers

I hope you didn't mean that the released version of the kernel is
currently 2.2.0pre9!

The current version (as of yesterday) is 2.2.2.  If you are still running
2.2.0pre9, you should upgrade *now*.

No, however you shoul not have too many problems updating to a 2.2 kernel
with SuSE Linux 6.0

Not quite true, in my experience.  There's a problem with Samba, which
I've yet to sort out (but Jason Clifford has shown me where to start
looking).

Okay.  To clarify - all the utilities *I use* are at or beyond required
level...

Sorry for the ommission :-)

The upgrade set my 2.0.2 samba back to 1.9.18 or whatever it was and it
wouldn't play any more. I re-installed 2.0.2-? in the end, and that
fixed it!

Cheers, Laurie.

No problem, and I'll try to remember the "on my systems" limiter myself
when necessary!

1. A question on upgrading to KDE 3.0.1 from KDE 2.2.2 (SuSE 7.3)

Well I downloaded all the rpms and deps from kde.org and SuSE.com into one
folder.

When I run 'rpm -Uvh --test *.rpm' I get the following:
"file /etc/ppp/peers/kppp from install of kdenetwork3-3.0.1-18 conflicts with  
 file from package kdenetwork-2.2.1-32".

Is this likely to be a problem? I upgraded to 2.2.2 via SuSE's online update.

I have a copy of the post-install instructions from the SuSE unofficial FAQs
page; and I know from reading alt.os.linux.suse to stay away from the
kde2-compat rpm.
