->Ok chaps I tried this but if I run anything that starts up the Arts

If you download all those packages and put them in directories of the
same name as they are on the server then install them group by group
they work just fine. I have updated KDE from 2.0 --> 2.2 with each
release. I only had to delete my .kde2 directory once. You should delete
all kde related files in /tmp along with .MCOP* .DCOP* and the 2 symlink
tmp files in ~/.kde2. The it should work fine. I would do the install
like this...


After I install each group of RPM's I run SuSEconfig. It may sound like
more of a pain the 'rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps *.rpm' but it works and I
have had very little trouble.
