Hello all,

Wonder if are there any chances to dist-upgrade KDE4.5 onto a openSUSE
11.2 x86_64 system, where GNOME is also installed as DE.

I ask this, since by attempting to dist-upgrade to KDE4.5 with zypper
dup, it resolved into a request of changing the arch for big list of
GNOME stuff (from x86_64 to i586).


You're doing a dup. Okay, what if you try disabling the 4.4 repos and
activate 4.5 repos and then just do a zypper *up* ? That shouldn't
effect Gnome unless there's a Gnome upgrade. dup will try to change
vendor and arch, up should not.


I had never configured/enabled KDE4.4 on my system.
If I do a zypper up, then I see many new KDE4.5 available updates that
went no installed due different vendor policy.

Why GNOME is so massively involved into the "dist-upgrade" when we are
talking of KDE?


You may not have configured KDE 4.4, but are you sure it's not installed?

a dist upgrade will do a distro upgrade. I.E. 11.2 to 11.3. So vendor changes will happen. What you want is

# zypper up

which will do a regular update and not try to upgrade to a new distro.

This may be of some help
