Hello, Sergei.

I am truly very happy for you that your installation worked. My recent
upgrade from KDE2.1 to 2.2 worked like a dream, too. Unfortunately,
the upgrade to 3.0 did not go smoothly.

As for downloading all the RPMs, I decided to stick with the ones on
the SuSE ftp server rather than go with the ones on since SuSE
tends to test their RPMs thoroughly before releasing them. All of the
RPMs from their base directory are installed on my system, so I don't
see what I could have missed, unless a requisite RPM is in a different

Bye for now,

I beg you pardon, but did you consider case when its not as much
of KDE rpms?
I mean switching from 2.2/2.1 to 3.0 went quite smooth for lots of ppl,

including myself.

I didnt have any glitch with KDE3 in few weeks, and i am working with
that box quite extensively.
So is there tiny possiblity that you managed to miss something?

I mean in my case only what i done - went to, picked up entire

kde3 directory , installed all files with yast1
and then fired up kde2 for last time as admin to include kde3 into
session list.

After logout - i got my kde3 shine and working.


For so far people seems to get all sources of weird dependencies and so

on problems and in most cases
its either b/c they didnt download needed rpm...
