    Go to YaST, and go to Change Source of instalation, in the new window go to Add -> http
    as the server name put ftp.uni-kl.de
    as the directory on the server put /pub/linux/suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_9.0/yast-source

    then click OK, and finnish

    close YaST, then go to YaST -> system update -> then peforme the update, then quit Yast and restart KDE.

    1. yast -> Change Source of instalation -> add http

    server name ftp.uni-kl.de
    directory on server /pub/linux/suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_9.0/yast-source

    -> OK, and finnish

    2. Close down Yast

    3. enter YaST -> system update, update of KDE should be in the list of updates -> click next, kde should update, finnish the install (this can take a few hours)

    4. Close YaST, and then restart the computer, or restart X;

    hope this helps;
