Re: Upgrading KDE and it's dependencies

Am I the only one who upgrades KDE without problems?  In the 2+ years I've 
been using Debian, I've taken KDE from 2.2.2 to 3.4.1, including every point 
release along the way, with only one hiccup; And that was a random 3rd party 
repository for KDE 3.0 under Woody that jammed on the KDEPIM package at one 
point.  Aside from that problem 2 years ago, KDE upgrades haven't caused me 
any notable problems.  Just remember to log out and back in again after 
upgrading kdelibs or kicker or something along those lines and you're 
fine. :-)

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
