    Hmm. Well, you can update your QT libraries, but that would almost certainly hose KDE unless you updated KDE along with them. I've been told it's possible to run applications with their own sets of libraries, but I've never tried to do it myself. Sorry I couldn't be of much more help.

    I'm looking to upgrade to the new version of suse professional when I can get my hands on it and I think that includes the new KDE version. Presumably, new library versions are backward compatible with earlier versions.

    I did look into just upgrading to the new KDE version but that looked so confusing with about a million separate packages to install. I was looking for just a single RPM to do the job.

    Anyway, I guess the apps I want to use need later libraries than I have and they will work when I wade through the upgrade quagmire.

    Thanks for the help.

    SuSE 9.3 is just around the corner. And yes, it will give you a new version of KDE among other things.
