Don't bother... what you've now described in much greater detail is not at all what I recall happening back then. You've got something else going on. Have you checked bugzilla at KDE?
Alternatively, you could update to KDE 3.5.2 or .3 level 'a'. 3.5.2 was the latest 'supplementary' available when I updated this 10.0 system and that's what I'm running now. That 'bug' and others as well as some feature enhancements might make it worth thinking about.
I was thinking about that. However, when I set up my first Linux box, SuSE8.2 (which I still love by they way, still chugging, I can't seem to take it out, but essentially out of service to avoid security issues), I at first avidly kept updating trivial :) things like KDE, Samba, etc. With a kludge I updated KDE, but the menus were dorked, as were some other features. I think I updated it from the KDE site, not suse as the suse site was way to slow, and the downloads were failing. Still worked however, so considering the fact that that was the same box I first got Postfix running I decided to leave it alone after that. Quit experimenting.
So considering this fact, it sometimes seems upgrading KDE is not worth the effort, unless you have a buggy version, not in 8.2, or needed upgrades or features.
And, having somewhat kept up with all the serious discussion about different (and dorked) ways to update 10.1, I've been kind of laying low. Staying out of the frey.
But, perhaps I should experiment on my work station, comfortably running 9.3. I could update KDE on this, considering I'd most probably do a fresh install of 10.....um.....2.
Anyway, sorry for the long story, but where can I find good practical info on upgrading KDE?
