Re: [opensuse] Is it possible to roll-back or undo an entire upgrade?
On 2012-10-07 03:25 (GMT-0400) Per Jessen composed:

I've recently upgraded a laptop from 11.4 to 12.2 - the upgrade went
very well, no issues at all. However, the machine is clearly not "big"
enough to run 12.2+KDE, and the user is now complaining about it being

What CPU/speed and gfxchip does it have?

slow and difficult to work with. I could always re-install 11.4, but I
thought I'd ask about the possibility of doing a downgrade?

Before doing anything so drastic you might want to try performance tweaking:

1:create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-composite.conf containing:
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"

2:disable automatic nepomuk/strigi startup:
A:make sure ~/.kde4/share/config/nepomukserverrc includes:
[Basic Settings]
Start Nepomuk=false
[main Settings]
Storage Dir[$e]=$HOME/.kde4/share/apps/nepomuk/repository/main/
Used Soprano Backend=null
rebuilt index for type indexing=false

B:make sure ~/.kde4/share/config/nepomukstrigirc includes:
exclude folders[$e]=$HOME/tmp/null
index hidden folders=false
index newly mounted=false

3:go into desktop settings and deslect most or all of the individual effects

If those alone are not enough:

4:install KDE3 and/or LXDE and/or XFCE & make it default WM

Additional KDE tweaking questions should goto opensuse-kde and/or opensuse-kde3 list(s).
