Newbie question alert...
I've just started playing with Red Hat Linux 7, and love it, in spite of
pulling my hair out due to my own mistakes. I've found that I like KDE much
better than Gnome, especially after updating KDE from 1.x to 2.x.
Since I'm still learning by wiping and reinstalling everything multiple
times (on purpose!), I got curious... Is there a problem upgrading KDE (or
anything else for that matter) while it is running? There's no prompt to
reboot or restart X, so I'm just curious how files in use get replaced. As
you may suspect, I come from the (not-so) wonderful world of Windows.
What I'm really getting at is that I'd like to do a fresh install without
Gnome, but then upgrade KDE to 2.0.1 and I want to avoid any problems. So
far I've been updating KDE while in Gnome.
Thanks for any insight,
