dist-upgrade using http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/kde-3.4.0/
I want to install KDE 3.4 on my PC using Debian apt-get.
I followed the wiki at
added the line
deb http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/kde-3.4.0/ ./
to /etc/apt/sources.list and did a dist-upgrade.
I get the following message:
The following packages have been kept back:
kdenetwork-kfile-plugins kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4 nvidia-glx
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
The packages kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4 and nvidia-glx are held back
manually by my selections, but if I try
apt-get install kdenetwork-kfile-plugins
I get a message ending
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kdenetwork-kfile-plugins: Depends: kdelibs4 (>= 4:3.4.0) but
4:3.3.2-6 is to be installed
FYI, I have done
apt-get install kde
and the version of the kde metapackage is 5:44. I think my existing KDE
installation 3.3.2 is whole and unbroken.
apt-get install -t unstable kde
brings the message
kde is already the newest version.
My /etc/apt/preferences file has the following settings:
Pin: release a=stable
Pin: release a=testing
Pin: release a=unstable
What must I do to upgrade to KDE 3.4 on my PC?
Please copy replies to my email address.
