    Update KDE


    I got KDE 3.4 on a cd.How can I update?I v been searchin the web but I couldn't find any directions...I think this should be one of the IMPORTANTS how-to's.

    I would assume
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    su
    make install
    http://www.kde.org/documentation/faq/install.html

    which distro?

    I beleve KDE has now made a prog, "konstruct", which (i think) helps you out and provide an easy way to manage the config + make + make install for you.

    I have all the rpm's.I don't think I can do ./configure...
    I don't remember exactly but I think u put all the rpm's in a folder then u go on level 3 and then in that folder u give rpm -something that I don't remember.If anyone knows the command that would b helpfull....

    What distro are you using? There may be an "easy" way to do it...you could use YaST in Suse, for instance, and I think you can use urpmi for Mandrake (not sure about that one, though).
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I used pkgtool in slackware, easy and quick.

    If it's RPM's, you can probably install them by pressing ctrl+alt+F2, then log in as root, then type this command:
    Code:
    rpm -Uvh *
