    Upgrading to KDE3.5


    Hey all,

    I'm downloading KDE3.5 slackware .tgz's from one of the UK mirrors. Once I have them should the upgrade process be as easy as "upgradepkg *.tgz"? Also I'm presuming I need to drop to the CLI and "init 2" first?

    Any other pointers would be great!

    yes, do it in init 3 not 4 though out of X.


    cd to the directory you have the new 3.5 pkg's and as root type

    upgrade *.tgz

    then login back to X
