Can the kde 4.3 openSUSE Live CD be used to add-on KDE 4.3 on a
working openSUSE 11.1 installation (already has GNOME 2.24 & KDE 3.5)
? I do not want to do a fresh openSUSE installation from live cd. The
KDE 4.3 Live CD page - (,
does not have any information about this.

Alternatively, has anyone tried the 1-click install
SUSE_11.1/KDE4-DEFAULT.ymp> to add-on KDE 4.3 to openSUSE 11.1 with
already-installed KDE 3.5.10 ? I recall sometime back there was big
long-winded discussion about KDE 4.2/higher to add-on to earlier KDE 3.5
series. But no definite yes/no result from there.

You can pretty easily install KDE 4.3 factory packages on 11.1 - alongside

And all you should need to do is add this repository:

And then install the KDE4 patterns with YaST.

If you don't already have the KDE3 OBS repo you prolly want to add it, or
quite a lot of KDE3 apps will probably be replaced by KDE4 ones.
