No, your not stupid. YOU only updates things from the update directory
and KDE 2.2.1 is in this directory ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/supplementary/
What you should do is this...cd into tmp and make these directories....
Then use a client such as ncftp or gftp..heck even Konqueror..and
download each set of rpms from the directories on the ftp site..they are
brokendown into directories like the ones you've made. You should then
use yast1 to install them one directory at a time...letting SuSEconfig
run after each install. This way things don't get hosed.
The 2.2.1 RPM's are not part of the default for any distribution release
accept 7.3 so they won't be in the update directory. They are just
provided as a service if you wish to install them.
Install in this order....
If you do it this way then you should have a problem. BTW..I download
and install everything..just so I miss nothing. And with the size of
harddrives today and how cheap there are...I don't worry about it.
Hope this helps a bit.
