You might have to experiment with different mirrors to find one that gives good performance. And don't forget that in the period shortly following a major release like this, load on the mirror servers can be very high. It took me three hours to download the KDE 3.4 upgrade packages two days ago.

Thanks Randall. Your instructions for upgrading to kde 3.4 is very clear. I successfully upgraded to kde 3.4 on my SuSe 9.1. I had to make one minor change to the directory on server. Here is the new path

When you go to install and it asks to install about 17 other things, can you just click "Ignore All"? Or do you need these updates?
*edit* Sorry, I just noticed the topic underneath...that's cuz this was one of the topics I found when searching about this on Google
