Just upgraded to KDE 4.2

Today I just upgraded to KDE 4.2 from KDE 4.1 on my openSUSE 11.1 (64bit) machine and it seems everything is working fine. The eye candy effects based on compiz are really nice and fast! :) (although they were already working fine with KDE 4.1)

 I just imported four repositories (you'll find them at the end of this article) via YaST and selected Packages > all packages >  Update if newer version is available. There were about 140 packages to update and I just had to adjust some dependecies. Finally all new packages had an amount of approximately 700MB.

The main KDE applications I always use haven't crashed jet and there are no graphic errors.

All in all I'm really happy with the new stable KDE and I await eagerly KDE 4.3 with its new innovative features.

List of openSUSE 11.1 repositories needed for KDE 4.2:

  • core packages: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/42/openSUSE_11.1
  • more packages: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE_42
  • more (experimentally) packages: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Playground/openSUSE_11.1_KDE_42
  • Qt 4.5 packages (required!): http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Qt/openSUSE_11.1
