Has anyone upgraded to KDE2.1 from 1.x? I had imagined
that I could either
a) install the KDE2 binaries (separate from the existing
binaries for KDE1) and then re-configure my system to use
b) upgrade to the KDE2 binaries using rpm -U.
(I'm running SuSE 7.0).
Neither approaches have worked; some of the package files
are specific to KDE2 and so do not affect the existing KDE1
system; however, the KDE2 kdelibs package is not in the form
kdelibs2, i.e. it conflicts with the existing kdelibs. When
I tried to upgrade to this it complains about dependencies
with KDE1 applications.
So, I'm thinking that a third method would be to delete the
/opt/kde directory (or more carefully uninstall KDE1) and
install KDE2.1 from scratch.
The documentation for KDE installation (www.kde.org/documentation)
does not include details on upgrading (or at least, I can't find
any such info). The details are given a basic installation.
What should I do?
Thanks in advance,
