Make sure you have the proper repos setup for 11.2
and then in a konsole, as root, do the following:

zypper ref
zypper dup (answer yes to this)

This should finish getting your system to a stable
state. Once you have finished this. I can help
you add a repo for KDE4.4 so you can have all of
the latest fixes for KDE4 and start to get
accustomed to the new way of calling things and
making them work. It's a slow process but one you
must endure to continue using KDE.

Thank you for the help! That went beautifully. I
now have susehelp, and a lot of other wonderful
software. Now I'm ready for KDE 4.4, or even 4.5
if that is available.

The easiest way if you are comfortable at the command line is create a
file under /etc/zypp/repos.d/KDE_4.4_Factory_openSUSE_11.2.repo (or
what ever you want to call it) and add the following:

name=repo KDE 4.4 Factory openSUSE_11.2

Then another

zypper ref
zypper dup

and you should be at KDE4.4.

Proceeding on my own, I would have put the
installation disk back in and selected "update".
But I wasn't sure exactly what that would do, so I
posted the question. Thanks again for helping.

Is zypper the product that used to tie up the
system? I remember being forced to disable a task
with a similar name, along with beagle, two years
ago, when I installed 10.2. I don't see either
running now, and my system is running just fine.

No, zypper is the result of fixing that problem and works quite well.
It's all I use anymore for updates and patches.

Any way I can change the title of this thread, without
violating etiquette?!

All ready done. Change it to what you feel covers the problem.

Hope this helps further.
