I had good luck by simply forcing the install using --nodeps and --force
arguments to rpm. I used rpm -Fvh or -Uvh to upgrade all the packages,
starting with libwhatever, qt, then kdelibs, kdebase, and the rest. Did
you put on those funny little libogg, libvorbis, libdoodliesquat library
collections found on the SuSE site? The dependencies all appear to sort
themselves out once you've got all the packages on. Then ran
SuSEconfig, and the job was done. What's more, I did the upgrading from
within kde 2.1. It didn't seem to care.

Why not give it a whizz?
