Which patterns do I (not) have to choose for an autoyast installation

In the manual installation process one has to choose at the very beginning
if it should be an KDE 3 or 4 installation. Is this possible with autoyast
as well? Trying that I always got both KDE versions in the end.

cloning a kde3 system does not work?

I did not check that because that's not what I want to do.

I did not check for the pattern names now but if it's working in a non-
autoyast installation, it should work in an autoyast installation too

That was exactly my idea. Without cloning anything if possible. ;-)

Installing pattern kde3 does the job quite good. Having lots of kde4
rpms was a problem of dependencies, I wasn't aware of.
Anyway. Installing only base and kde3, there are still some kde4 packages
left, that are installed and I don't understand why that's necessary.

(How) Is it possible to have the KDE 4.2 repository integrated into the
autoyast installation, so that 4.1 is replaced by 4.2.
I tried to integrate the repository, but anyway, 4.1 rpms have been
installed and not the rpms of 4.2. Although the 4.2 packets are available
in the (auto)Yast software section, so the repository has been included.

that's working fine here:

<add-on>
<add_on_products config:type="list">
<listentry>

<media_url>http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1/</media_url>
<product>KDE 4.2</product>
<product_dir>/</product_dir>
<name>KDE_update</name>
</listentry>
</add_on_products>
</add-on>
<software>
<install_recommended config:type="boolean">true</install_recommended>
<patterns config:type="list">
<pattern>base</pattern>
<pattern>kde4</pattern>
</patterns>
</software>

Thanks. That works fine for me as well. But only as long as I don't
additionally install

<pattern>kde4_internet</pattern>

as in my original configuratiion. But as it's not absolutely necessary,
I can skip that.
