Just installed SuSE 11.1 with KDE 4.1.

KDE 4.1 will take some getting used to.

Well, just skip it. Go to the 4.2.

Is there a "SUSE approved" method for doing this? I want to avoid SUSE's
update mechanism from losing track of what's installed and what patches may
be available.

Reminds me of the early days when there was constant churn in KDE versions
with dozens of rpms to be installed over the top of older ones, seemed like
nearly every week! Sometimes names changed and old ones had to be removed
before new ones could be installed. As I remember I finally broke it beyond
repair and had to reinstall from the CDs. And this was getting the updates
off of SUSE's own web site!


I'm using KDE3.
KDE4 is just a toy, because it changes to fast, with new features (and bugs)
every time I update it. The 4.2 is really worth to install.

The main page with instructions and 1-click links is:

It is from openSUSE stand point development, so it contains some bugs.
During installation using 1-click it may complain on dependency problems.

Use Expert button in window with complaints and post it here.

I just told YaST not to install packages like kde_sysinfo,
compiz-kde<something> and I guess one more.

That dependency issue seems to be because KDE4 pattern.
