KDE SC 4.5.0 was just released and as usual we have the freshest packages for
you. The packages are in KDE:Distro:Factory and related OBS projects. We
expect to produce an openSUSE 11.3 respin with 4.5.x shortly.

If you want to install 11.3 with 4.5.0 preinstalled right now, use the Live
Image from

If you want to upgrade your existing openSUSE installation to KDE SC 4.5.0,
follow these steps for the best experience. They assume you are using 11.3,
substitute 11.2 in all URLs below if necessary.

1) Remove any old KDE:KDE4:* repositories and KDE:Qt* repositories

2) Add the repository containing 4.5.0: KDE:Distro:Factory :

zypper ar -f \ \

3) Add the Extra repository (optional):

zypper ar -f \


4) Upgrade all packages from KDE:Distro:Factory and KDE:Extra (omit if not

zypper dup --from KDF --from KDEExtra

5) If you are using knetworkmanager, replace it with the Network Management
plasmoid due to a bug in KNM with 4.5.0 that hides all connections, before you
upgrade or you may be stuck without a connection!

zypper in plasmoid-networkmanagement

and allow it to deinstall NetworkManager-kde4.

6) logout and login again.

Please report any problems with the upgrade process here and report any
packaging/integration bugs at, and upstream bugs at as appropriate.
