How to install latest KDE on SUSE 9.1
Posted on 2004-08-29
Hello, this is going to be fun, but I'll try to explain.
I have SUSE 9.1 Pro. It comes shipped with KDE 3.2.1. I already know how to get updates and patches. However SUSE support will not give me any answers on how to update KDE. They only support SUSE which I think thier free support is crap!
Now I used to use SUSE 9.0, but I bought into the marketing hype and bought 9.1. I want to utilize the features in KDE 3.3, but I am having difficulty finding a good install DOC on how to do it. At first I tried to use "Konstruct". A whole bunch of stuff went zipping by and made me look like I new what I was doing. It took forever to download. It just kept on going and going. Is there a config file or something to choose what you do or do not wnat to download? Anyway, It kept failing on stupid dependencies so I went looking for other DOCS.
I found a really good DOC for SUSE 9.0 with pictures and everything. It was on linuxsupport.com. However, There are a few unique screens on SUSE 9.1 that are not on SUSE 9.0. I tried in vain to follow the 9.0 docs but, I still had problems. Anyway, I'm still stuck on KDE 3.2.1. I need help getting KDE updated to the latest version. I've scred up the install twice and had to reload KDE 1. So in summary this is what I'm trying to do:
I want to update KDE to the latest version on SUSE 9.1. SUSE support will not help or even give suggestions. I'm not stupid but I need some type of step by step help with KDE. I don't care if you give me the run through with "Konstruct" or what. I just need to know how to config it.
