Re: Problems with KDE Packages after 3.1.0 => 3.1.1
I ran into the same problem, and all I had to do was un-install kde and
then reinstall all the 3.1.1 packages (this will kill kdm and X so do
it from one of your virtual terminals). I think that a better tool to
use is dselect because you can see the versions when you pick the
packages and it also solves dependency conflicts (or at least tries
too). Hope this helps, there may be an easier way though.
